Rising Swedish R&B/pop star Zikai has released new single ‘Stay This Way’ with Jim Ouma and featuring Kes Kross.
‘Stay This Way’ is a slow-burning reflection on longing to return to a time in your life that has passed. Its airy Afropop beats are further complemented by a feature in the shape of Kes Kross.
“‘Stay This Way’ is about a time in my life that felt so simple and free,” says Zikai. “The song allows me to look back to a happy time that I never wanted to change. I wrote it two years ago, but it feels particularly relevant now.”
Zikai wrote the song with the track’s producers Jim Ouma (previously of NONONO, best known for their hit ‘Pumpin Blood’) as well as Kes Kross and Kinda Ingrosso.
Last year saw Zikai release her debut EP ‘Make You Mine’. It has accumulated 8.3 million streams at Spotify and earned a Denniz Pop Award nomination for Rookie Artist / Band.
