Alewya | Ethiopian-Egyptian Musician + Little Simz Collaborator Shares Sensual Debut Single + Video

Welcome to the transcendent sounds of multidisciplinary artist Alewya.

Dubbed “this decade’s triple threat” by LOVE Magazine, the autodidact UK-based producer, singer-songwriter and artist released her debut single “Sweating” today via Because London Records, following her recent feature on Little Simz’s track “where’s my lighter.”

“Sweating” is sensual, melodic dance music: 2am in a dingy club with entwined bodies, passion and potent intensity. The melodies on “Sweating” are buoyed by future-facing productions, drawing influence from her African roots and UK club culture. The song’s sensual melodies implore you to move. For the track, Alewya brought in UK / Ghana-based producer The Busy Twist who makes African-inspired Bass Music that re-joins the dots between Accra and London. The two come together for a fire-fueled fusion of the deepest club rhythms. Alewya notes, “It’s about feeling chemistry with someone but also about a female who is not afraid of her prowess and power. It’s a mood.”
