Rising brazilian singer, songwriter and producer llyana returns showcasing her emotional side with her brand new self released single titled, “Love Me Right” out now via all streaming platforms. Having opened up for Grammy nominated, Japanese Breakfast in 2019 and selling out her live performances in Florianopolis, Brazil, it it safe to say llyana is on a roll.
“I’ve fallen in love so many times, and yet the feeling of being in love always inspires me to write, and with “Love Me Right” it wasn’t any different. I wanted to create a song that recreates that moment of falling for someone, that makes you feel good, makes you want to dance and feel yourself!”
Her newest single “Love Me Right” is an emotion tinged tune filled with bright piano house beats and llyana’s own soft and feminine vocals belting out the feelings of falling in love with the one. As the lyrics mention, “I believe you’re for me, but you still have no clue” echos many of the sentiments we all have when we first fall in love. “Love Me Right” can relate to anyone who has been in love, where there is a bit of uncertainty, vulnerability but also hope and optimism.
EDMJoy also had the privilege to interview llyana ahead of her new single, where she opened up about her inspiration behind “Love Me Right” and what we can expect from her in the near future. Take a read down below!
Was there a certain person in your life that you attribute to putting you on the path for music or your music career?
R: There were a couple people! I started singing more and playing the guitar at 12 years old, so many friends and family members would encourage me to audition for singing competitions/tv shows and that was enough to fuel the dream of pursuing a career in music.
‘Love Me Right,’ is very relatable and connects with anyone who’s had that rush of love in their life – what made you want to make a track about this?
R: Honestly, I’ve fallen in love so many times and that feeling/rush always inspires me to write songs and poems. “Love Me Right” represents a new chapter in my life because it was written right after I got out of a relationship where I felt like I was never loved the right way. Still, it highlights the magic behind falling for someone.
Do you have favorite artists or favorite genres you are vibing right now?
R: Absolutely! Been listening to Disclosure, GoldLink, Frank Ocean, Gwen Stefani and Matue (Brazilian artist).
Do you have a favorite venue you like to play at? For that matter, what’s the craziest moment you can think of during performance night?
R: Yesss! I love performing at The Bowery Electric in NYC. Definitely had some unforgettable shows there.
One of the craziest moments was when I had almost 200 people singing with me and leaving me completely speechless.
Do you have more music in the works?
R: I do! I’m releasing 2 more singles this year after Love Me Right.
Recently recorded the final vocals for “Rush” which will come out in October, and is probably one of the best songs I’ve ever written
