Grammy-nominated Soul/Jazz singer Maysa is celebrating her 20th year as a solo recording artist this year with the release of her forthcoming album Back 2 Love, due out May 26. The project has been described as her widest-ranging album yet, incorporating contemporary R&B, jazzy Soul balladry, straight-up dance music, inspirational pop and more.
Today, Maysa shares the groovy new single “Keep It Movin’,” produced by Mint Condition’s lead vocalist/producer/songwriter Stokley, who also contributes a guest vocal on the track.
“Stokley is an amazing artist,” Maysa says. “I love his writing, his voice and performing style. I think our styles are like smoke and fire together, like a sweet barbecue sauce! I was so happy he joined me on this record.”
Stokley adds, “Working with Maysa was so familiar even though we’ve never collaborated before. We have a lot of the same influences. Maysa has such a unique gift. Think if velvet, butter & brown had a sound… weave a few high textures in there, that’s her! You feel her soul when she delivers a song. I’m very honored to have worked with Maysa.”
