Lila Iké releases “I Spy”, her inaugural single fresh off signing to RCA Records in a joint venture with In.Digg.Nation Collective and Six Course Records.
The song will be featured on the singer’s forthcoming EP, The Experience, which will be out on May 15th.
The track is produced by IzyBeats, who earned a GRAMMY award for his contribution to Koffee’s “Toast”.
Lila stated in reference to the recording, “When Izy played the beat in the studio I just heard this ‘chek, chek’ and then this specific drum pattern that is familiar in Jamaican culture, so I started pacing the room and singing the chorus ‘I Spy, I Spy.’ Izy was like ‘Oh my god, that is it!’ I felt his energy, so it pushed me to go further and it blossomed into what it is today. I am really excited how it turned out and confident it will open new markets for me. It is going to be beautiful.”
The visuals were directed by Danny Williams and was filmed in Kingston, Jamaica with cameos from her labelmates Sevana, Jaz Elise and Naomi Cowan.
