Queen: What to expect from the Ayanda Jiya EP?

Ayanda Jiya brings us an entertaining project filled with seven songs, all bringing a different vibe and energy to the listening experience.

The project had been promoted through her single Love Me, featuring Kwesta, however, several other big-name rappers make an appearance on the project.

Besides Kwesta, the project also has guest appearances from Flvme on No Games, Stogie T on Mr Smooth, and A-Reece on Don’t You Forget.

Jiya uses every track to display her vocal talents, gracing every song with a different twist like her bringing fans a fun and bouncy love song on Talk To Me, however, she switches up to a little bit of rapping on the track Let Me In.

The beat selection is interesting as they stick to the traditional R&B roots while adding a touch of hip-hop with heavy bass, 808s, and rattling snares on some of the songs.

With a run-time of 24:51, the project is a decent effort from the singer and R&B fans should have a blast listening to this body of work.

Check out the EP, now available on all streaming platforms.
