South African singer and songwriter Azana ushers in the month of love with new remix of her 2021 smash hit single, Higher with Ynesa & Knightsa Remix. Stream or download here: https://platoon.lnk.to/higher-remix
A love song that speaks of different events in one’s life that brought them happiness, particularly- childhood. The song begins with the phrase “Take me back to the times by the river when we use to swim till late and when we use to play outside all day” The speaker is asking her lover to make her happy by letting her be herself like how she was when she was younger. Childhood for many is a time where forgiveness is easy, less tension, where we are not afraid to fail, therefore, we are happier and less self-aware… that is why the reference to childhood was so important when describing how the speaker wants to be loved.
This remix was made by producer and a self-confessed fan of Azana’s, Ynesa, and after testing it out and receiving a positive reception, Azana green-lighted the single for an official release.
There have been many remixes in many genres that have been made of this song, but this is my favourite. The deep house version has caught people’s attention the most with its soothing soulful sound.
I hope this song reminds the listener of the happiest times of their life, that it makes them want to feel those emotions again by allowing their inner child to flourish.
Azana’s latest radio single, Zalabantu, continues to soar on radio, placing at #56 on the Radiomonitor Top 100 Airplay chart, #5 on the Gagasi FM Top 30 chart and #10 on the Jozi FM Top 20 chart just to highlight a few.
