Last month, Fuji-inclined Afropop artist Lyta exited his arrangement with YBNL rather controversially. In all of the brouhaha, one of the main points the singer harped on was the difficulty in releasing a constant stream of music. Now with a new management team, he’s wasting no time in putting out new music. “Monalisa”, his first single of the year, is a romantic cut packed with heartfelt declarations, in order to gain the full attention of his rather aloof love interest.
“I Wanna Give You All My Love, Monalisa”, Lyta plainly declares on the hook, with the charm of his boyish vocal texture conjuring his longing emotions. To embellish the romantic sentiments, Killertunes produces a mellow Afropop beat for “Monalisa”, mixing an arpeggiated guitar motif and softly jabbing drums to evocative effect. The accompanying music video DK directs, charmingly captures Lyta and a beautiful model acting as the song’s muse, at an empty amusement park, trying to connect, in tandem with the song’s narrative.
