UK Artist Lyves Teams Up With Rapper Jalen Santoy To Unveil Brilliant Single "Certain Things"


Lyves' talent seems to be limitless. In addition, with a musical style that is both unique yet versatile, the young singer from London returns with a sweet and catchy single, entitled "Certain Things", in collaboration with rapper Jalen Santoy.

The track "Certain Things" is a beautiful musical orchestration amalgamating in a subtle way, three musical genres, including Soul, RnB and an ounce of Jazz.

Also, the versatile side of the song takes a boost when Jalen Santoy begins his refined rap verse. Indeed, we had already been subjugated by the vocal mastery of Lyves in her composition "Still", where she performed, mostly, on a very sharp tone. Thus, with "Certain Things", Lyves approaches a tonal perspective a little deeper and soft. Regarding that, she quotes:

"Certain Things" was written in one short evening with Nathanael Williams and Simeon Jones from The Colours That Rise. Nathanael and Simeon are used to working together as a duo but we had never all sat in a room together. This was our first idea and within 10 minutes the piano, drums, and vocal melody came together. This song's energy is about being in the moment, appreciating where we are, and living for right here, right now, despite past and future worries - which is in line with how the song seemed to spontaneously come about. We knew we wanted to feature an artist we love and respect and Jalen's raw energy and performance brought so much to it. This song feels like a collaboration in many ways and the start of a new chapter personally and musically."
