When it comes to UK producers doing the most, Shawn Keyz has to be in the top 5, as this ingenious sound innovator has proven time and again that he’s got the recipe for creating hit music with universal appeal. He has an ear for sound design and a knack for commercial appeal, making him an artist to keep an eye out for. He is also a successful author, with his recently launched empowering book “The Gem In I” earning him widespread embrace from far and wide.
After releasing the single “The Gem In I,” inspired by the entirety of his book, Shawn has decided to delve deeper into individual chapters, translating them into musical excellence. “Don’t Leave” takes cues from Chapter 8, titled “The Power Of Forgiveness.”
Man, I have always loved and adored something that takes me back to the element of hip-hop and R&B, and that’s exactly what this record does here: Shawn, with such innovative finesse, creatively taps into that old school hip hop and R&B and serves them as one gratifying palette that you can never get enough of.
And as someone who gets the best out of anyone he works with, it is no surprise that this collaboration comes off so perfectly.
London’s songbird, Lateefah, instills an entrancing R&B feel with her mellifluous vocals, ebbing and flowing with irresistible allure. Kvon, another London-based rapper, skillfully navigates this nostalgic production, delivering a first-class lyrical performance that complements this epic production.
In this era where producers are finally getting their flowers, Shawn is raising the stakes and proving that he deserves to be in the conversation as well.
Through his independent record label, “Kreating Dreams”, Shawn is providing a platform for untapped talents and giving them the license to fly and the opportunity to astonish the world with their musical gifts.
“Don’t Leave” embodies a radio staple in every way and is expected to be on heavy rotation everywhere!
