American singer Lydia Lyon teams up with Gene Blaze on her brand-new single “Mess Around”, to serve a vibrant and playful afro-pop song that is sure to get you straight to the dance floor. The artist has stayed true to her American roots with this stylistically zesty, cool songwriting, and beautiful, velvety vocal delivery.
The addition of South African singer Gene Blaze hits hard, with his smooth and hot performance, seamlessly weaving his native languages Zulu and English into one perfect verse.
Nubian-American producer MO3Z perfectly fuses African and American influences to ensure that this track comes out with a bang! “Mess Around” is clearly inspired by the richness of international sound and the insatiable desire for good vibes.
The song is taken from Lydia’s debut EP Femme, that has also just come out. The record offers a captivating new take on afro, house, and the hot nostalgia of 90s new jack swing.
After a year of highlights, with her afro-pop single “Excuse-Moi” being selected for airtime on BBC Radio, multiple original releases on Soave Records, and collaborations with notable Spinnin’ Records artists, Femme comes at a perfect highpoint for a potent impact on her listeners, and for us it’s a success!
The combo of the savvy and uninhibited songwriting of Lydia Lyon and Gene Blaze, and the fiery composition of MO3Z really create a sonically profound experience for a new decade. Soon to follow, a music video will emerge through a bi-continental effort from Blaze and Lyon to tell the beautiful story of an emerging and unfamiliar new love.
