Multi-Talented West Londoner Alewya Returns With Explosive "Jagna" Visuals

June 24, 2021

Following on from her transcendental debut, "Sweating", and a powerful team-up with Moses Boyd on "The Code", Alewya returns with another transformative release, "Jagna". It's another sweet mixture of her Ethiopian and Egyptian roots, which she ties in with UK club culture to create a symphony of melodies and rhythms.

The explosive new track opens with uptempo percussions and twangy guitar strums as Alewya flows in sync with the rapid-fire production. Meanwhile, the video, which was directed by Alewya and Tom Ringsby, sees her darting through a desert-like beach in an attempt to "release and charge".

Alewya is a multifaceted creative with skills spanning across music, sculpting, painting, producing and songwriting. It's clear that there are no boundaries to her creative expression as she channels euphoria, heartache and melancholy into a heady and intoxicating mix.

Having made a brief appearance on Little Simz's atmospheric "Where's My Lighter" from last year's Drop 6, Alewya will be supporting the British rapper on tour this summer.
