Backed by sounds synonymous to reggaeton beats, Lila Iké releases in vocals and visuals for her new single I Spy.
Lila Iké whose real name is Alicia Grey, debuted in April 2017 with the single, Biggest Fan. Now, the Manchester, Jamaican native has put on a display of sound and delivery for an international audience — her first release since being supported by RCA Records in a new deal signed by Protoje with their label In.Digg.Nation Collective and Six Course. Her debut EP The Experience will arrive on May 15.
Fresh from Micheal Busalacchi and Peter Da Silva, the April 16, 2020 release presents Lila in an unfamiliar sexy tone and mood. An invitation from the Spy opens the Danny Williams directed AJR Films music video shot on various locations in Jamaica. In her true melodic style, Lila belts out her soulful vocals soliciting questions from an admirer. Unawares to the unknown character, she observes from a distance his concealed desires for her affection. Her sounds are a playful fusion of reggae, soul, R & B, and pop.
The young female crooner spies on her prospect from different vantage points throughout the video; from her house balcony, while chilling on the river, on the playground, the garden, from an abandoned building, even while getting a bike ride in the community. She zeroes in on her man by decreasing the distance between them. Riding the rhythm like a true reggae star, and invites attention from her male prospect, whom she later engages in conversation; again, inviting his questions, to which she has all the answers.
What started as an admirer observed some distance away, gradually transitioned to close the gap, as their paths are crossed in the public domain. Their captivating fantasy tag-spy game culminates with them at the local bar in a more intimate setting where he can get to know her better.
Lila’s sound is truly enchanting. Played over and over, the track can be enjoyed in captivation, without being overplayed or overindulged. This simplicity in effortless artistry offers a refreshingly enjoyable experience for every type of listener, from all over.
