International Recording Pop/Soul Artist AiRis is back on the music scene with a New Single ‘Jéjé’




The Single  Jéjé from the upcoming debut Album ‘Yours Truly’ will be released on Friday, July 5, 2013

 The suspense is over. After 3 years of waiting, Pop/Soul/RnB Egyptian/Nigerian Recording Artist AiRis returns to her passion for music, with the release of another new hit single Jéjé to be launched on Friday, July 5, 2013. Produced by MR. CHIDOO and part of an upcoming full album project tagged ‘Yours Truly’, a ten track album that will be released in the spring of 2014. Jéjé is a return to romance music that inspires communication with lovers.


Two singles will be pre-released off the album before the launch in the spring. ‘Jéjé’ means ‘Take it easy’ in Yoruba, and AiRiS sings about a loved one taking it easy on her and trusting her love for him. AiRis’s beautiful soulful vocals rides against a backdrop of African talking drum beats and soothing band arrangements of horns and piano licks. The upbeat Afro-pop romantic song will be a favorite among couples sorting out issues or trying to solidify their bond. Jéjé is a good dance track.


…”One thing in particular about AiRis is the fact that she understands her music “sound” which makes the working process very easy. “Working with AiRis on the song Jéjé was about experimenting. We wanted to create a unique sound, then we thought of using some Afrobeat influences. It came out all well.” — Producer, MR. CHIDOO.
