Tolü Makay is an expressive and inspirational artist, her new single ‘You Are Enough’ is an anthem of empowerment and of personal affirmation.
Makay’s gospel background is pushed to the forefront on this energetic track that evokes strong ‘Lemonade’ era Beyonce vibes – both in its positive proclamation of oneself but also by harnessing the sonic ingredients of a classic Nile Rodgers guitar style mixed with some heavy rock distortion and a pulsing snare that drives the song into a truly euphoric and celebrative state.
‘You Are Enough’ has a huge chorus, which one can imagine filling dancefloors (when dancefloors are allowed again). Inspired after reading the book ‘You Are A Badass…” by Jen Sincero and by the motivational stylings of American gospel singer William McDowell, Tolü Makay has produced a song which praises the brilliance that one possesses within themselves.
This single release is the second taster Tolu has shared, from her debut EP ‘BEING’ which will be out October 9th via her Berlin-based label Welcome to The New World. ‘Don’t Let Go’ was her first release, which featured on the RTE Radio 1 Recommends playlist for four weeks running, placing the track at #1 in the RTE Radio 1 Airplay charts. Fault Magazine says: “Authentically soulful and blended with hints of Jazz, Irish singer Tolü Makay has a clear and confident voice leading the next generation of R&B artists.”
