The R&B game is shifting again with the arrival of Shayne Shalome. Hailing from Detroit, the young singer/songwriter is keeping it 1000 on her debut EP, ‘To Whom It May Concern.’ She shows the haters she is not here for the BS, as she delivers mature and raw lyrics over Trap heavy beats.
On the opening track, “In My Bag,” she is about her money and dissing anyone who hasn’t leveled up. She refuses to get caught up with false promises because “Most of these n—– be acting and naw, I’m not handing out passes ’cause most of these n—– be practice.”
Shalome, who is the latest member to join the Live TMG roster, exudes a feisty aura with no apologies. Possessing multiple talents, she also raps as she focuses on making music that captures who we are when we’re falling in and out of love.
“I think the best part of my EP is how relatable it is for anyone that listens because that’s always how I want my music to feel, anybody listening to TWIMC is bound to just catch a vibe,” she said.
In the visuals for “In Ya Feelings” Shalome enjoys time with her peeps at the beach and park while clapping back at her boo who turned out to be a fool.
With flowing harmony she sings: “Play it crazy if you want to okay, I don’t really want yo ass no way / Keep it moving I mean fast with no brakes / Don’t look back, I’ll throw this back in ya face.” Adding, “You done lost the only winner on ya team / I see everything ain’t really what it seems / Oh you, really in ya feelings baby / Now you, really in ya feelings baby / How you, all up in ya feelings baby / You was just winning baby, now you up in ya feelings, baby.”
Bass and synth heavy production by Smerf will have listeners thinking while twerking. TWIMC closes with the feel good jam, “Getaway,” the perfect backdrop for enjoying the fruits of labor that benefit romantic relationships.
