Although the down-to-earth woman is no stranger to the scene and has made an impact through extraordinary songwriting skills that break the spell of the typical, New York songstress, Lachi, has teamed up with longtime showstopper, Styles P, for a track that stands out from the crowd and squashes any genre borders.
Pushing the boundaries of her artistry, “Living A Lie” is a surefire hit in which a dose of Lachi’s sensuality invigorates the opening build up that switches gears into a full-blown EDM attack that meshes with ease.
Adding the linguistic skill of Styles P over the third verse creates the notion that the track is rooted in real-world experience which is lyrically uncommonly explored throughout EDM/Dance music.
There is a Hip-Hop beat within the instrumental aspect of the track that opens doors for listeners that are keen to cling to the genre, yet simultaneously introduces those listeners into a whole new world with the EDM element.
The feminine/masculine balance throughout the track adds an element of alignment with a higher purpose as both Lachi and Styles P spill words from their heart that portray nothing short of their own truths. It is evident that the two singer/songwriters came together having already known that the connection and chemistry between them would serve to create an earnest and enduring track.
Empowered, bold, honest and raw. If you’re a fan of singers such as Toni Braxton, Mary J. Blige, and Faith Evans, then the missing element to your soulful collection is Lachi. Don’t be surprised if you see “Living A Lie” creeping its way up the charts in no time. Check out more of Lachi on Soundcloud.
