Tay Iwar may be an artist best-known for his collaborations, be it appearances on Wizkid’s “True Love” or his production on Burna Boy’s “Alone,” but his own solo material marks him as an increasingly magnetic part of the afrobeats universe. On new song "Summer Breeze," premiering below, Iwar floats over a laidback beat that extends from night until day. "Ease my pain until the sun comes up," Iwar sings as he chases a feeling that's just out of reach.
"Summer Breeze" is produced by London-based Juls, whom Iwar has worked with on previous songs "December" and "Chance." The track will appear on an EP of the same name, due for release this Friday, June 9. It's Iwar's first project since 2019 album Gold and a perfect accompaniment to the sunny season.
Speaking to The FADER via email, Iwar said, I made this song to express the feeling of freedom through celebration on a beautiful summer day. 'Summer Breeze' is a feeling, it’s the soundtrack to a beautiful sunset. When you listen, I want you to dive deeper into your comfort zone. The song was created with a lot of love. Shout out to my brother Juls.”
