Ghanaian-German singer/songwriter Jean Feier is out with her new song ‘Lay It Down’. Lay it Down is a fusion of Alte and Amapiano.
The tempo is mellowed out by clear piano keys, violins, and poignant writing. The mood is given “a translucent place where heartbreak meets self-affirmation” The song tells the story of loving the best version of someone but having to accept that the romance is short-lived.
After 4 nominations across 3 continents, Jean Feier returns with more fresh sounds and an original alternative African vibe. Early listeners who are familiar with her Lo-fi sound and eclectic writing from Soundcloud, will be pleasantly surprised by how even on an Amapiano-sounding record, her DNA shines through.
“I wrote this song at the end of a very meaningful relationship. He was the sweetest person but his affections for me became unclear. I started suspecting all types of things and started withdrawing emotionally. Even started resenting him for what was in my eyes, neglecting our bond. It also made me think about how I always give my “all” to people but I have never found the one whose “all” could cover me. Thank God for the power of Christ. I hope this song liberates you from any bondage you might still be making excuses for. Even if it’s just for the duration of this song.” Love, Jean.
Co-produced by Jean Feier herself, Lay it down also has production credits from South African producer Silas Beat, with additional production by Jean Feier. A snippet of the song first appeared on an Instagram post last year in August and will be available everywhere from the 8th of September.
