Maysa is celebrating her 20th year as a solo recording artist this year, and marking that achievement with her new album, Back 2 Love!
"Keep It Movin'" is the groovy first single, a collab with Mint Condition's lead singer Stokley, who also produced the track. On the song, Maysa tells a stagnant lover to get the steppin': “If you try and wait too long, you’ll look up and find me gone,” she sings on the chorus.
"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."
About the album, Maysa says, "Back 2 Love represents the fact that I'm ready to get back to having a personal life with a very special man in my life. I have worked hard on my career so I could take care of us (my son and me)…I am ready to meet Prince Charming. The music is exactly who I am.”
Back 2 Love (which is due out May 26) follows 2013’s Blue Velvet Soul and 2014’s A Very Maysa Christmas.
