Your Weekend Playlist, Courtesy of Seyi Shay
Listen up everyone—the queen has entered the building.
Seyi Shay, an Afrobeats singer/songwriter based out of the UK, is a certified star. Born in Tottenham, England, Shay moved back to her family’s home country of Nigeria, where she’s now taking over. While you might not have heard of her just yet, she’s worked with industry titans like Wizkid, Neyo, and even Justin Timberlake, creating sun-drenched beats and ’90s R&B throwback jams.
But perhaps what makes us love Shay even more is her badass activism. Blazing a path for African women in music, Shay has been a huge proponent for female empowerment through the #WhatIReallyReallyWant global campaign earlier this year. With critical acclaim and media attention from Rolling Stone, The Telegraph, Harpers Bazaar, and Vogue, I think it’s safe to say that if she isn’t already, Shay should be on your radar.
Lucky for you, Shay’s partnered with us at Milk.XYZ to bring to you the perfect weekend playlist to turn up to this long weekend. Listen above.
