Shekhinah is finally dropping a new album, 3 years after her award winning debut album, Rosegold
South Africa’s sweetheart, Shekhinah, returns with the release of her new single Fixate featuring BeyT. The new single comes with a pre-order for her upcoming sophomore album, Trouble In Paradise.
Fixate is the long awaited new single from the talented artist since her award winning album Rose Gold. Staying true to form, the mid-tempo bop provides the perfect foundation for Shekhinah’s signature hypnotic vocals, is complemented by BeyT’s smooth tone and showcases the scope of her sharp songwriting and dynamic voice.
She says that the song was inspired by imposter syndrome and the many ups and down a young adult goes through.
“It’s a reminder to always be on my side, being a team player on my own team; it’s a love letter to self and really sets the tone for the rest of the project.
On her collaboration with Bey T: “I just loved her sound and really appreciated her work ethic, it was such a great time in studio and having her in Johannesburg,” Shekhinah explains.
Shekhinah says that Trouble In Paradise is a continuation of her debut album, Rosegold
The release of Fixate launches the pre-order for her long awaited sophomore alum Trouble In Paradise. Shekhinah says of the album, “My new project “Trouble in Paradise” is a continuation of my first album “RoseGold” which spoke to blissful ignorance.
The idea is that all that was RoseGold is now ablaze. Paradise is no longer the place it used to be and trouble has come. Red for me signifies the burning of Paradise and the polaroid picture on fire signifies memories of the past. A broken heart ties in the melted ice cream (to signify comfort eating), the cassette tape (speaking to treasured memories/nostaligia) and the car illustration which is an ode to the “Suited” music video which brings the concept full circle.”
