Layzee Ella Returns With A Rich Cache Of Soul-Pop Music On “Feel Everything”

Posted on

Fast rising rapper, singer, and songwriter Layzee Ella has released her new EP titled Feel Everything a year after her debut project When The Lights Go Off. Feel Everything is a rich potpourri of soul-inflected pop sounds that catalogs Layzee’s view of life into aural form.

Led by the Khaid-featuring Medusa, Feel Everything has five songs that bear the imprint of her reality. The EP opens with the dancehall-inspired Rotation, which finds the singer pining after a love interest over skittering percussion while the pentatonic Summertime is a stirring summons to the dance floor all summer long. As Feel Everything progresses into the second half, it veers wholeheartedly into the realm of buttery lyrics and neon soundscape reminiscent of Layzee on When The Lights Go Off. Who Fell Off is a defiant statement of intent and Hypnotise carries a reflective ballad that brings the project to a sanguine end. 

Speaking about her most recent project, she said, “This project is inspired by everything, from my life experience to the people in my life, the places I have been, and the relationships I have. It truly is a collection.”

Layzee Ella has since progressed from making covers of popular Afrobeats songs on social media to growing her online community of supporters. The singer-rapper released her debut single Sober in 2020 which got people talking. She quickly followed with her debut EP When The Lights Go Off in 2020, which spawned the hits Deep Into You and Body On Me along with four other boisterous tunes.

Layzee skillfully articulates her innermost thoughts while pulling you closer into her midst with her youthful, attention-demanding voice. Her songs speak of a desire for sincere companionship, a passion she shares with not just young people but music listeners of all ages. She has made a reputation for herself with her music which is a rich composite of influences from R&B, Dancehall, and Reggae in addition to Afropop.
