Kwaye is far from the ordinary – whether pertaining to his looks or his music, the singer is impossible to classify into just one single box. But it’s really no surprise if you take a look at his life: Born in Zimbabwe and raised in London, the 22-year-old is a global child who has kept us on his toes ever since his first release Cool Kids that has gathered more than 1.2m plays on Spotify since March.
Now he’s back with his first EP, Solar, released via Mind of a Genius Records/Warner Bros. Records in late July.
Sweetest Life, the only unheard track on the EP, reflects Kwaye in more ways than one by mirroring a mixture of things: a blend of 80’s synths intertwined with neo-soul and myriad of unexpected sounds such as a saxophone and pipes that give the production a timeless feel.
The single was actually debuted by none other than Zane Lowe on Beats 1. The singer claims: “Sweetest Life captures the excitement and spontaneity of love in its purest form. The song symbolizes an outward expression of those good vibrations that are made great when shared.”
