Emerging from the heart of Croydon and rooted in Kingston, Jamaica, dancehall rising star Indie Amoi recently put out her debut EP Love Games- and now she follows it with the visuals for the lead single "Situationship". The title speaks for itself and dives into the dynamics of a sensual-driven relationship. The track blends elements of R&B with a heavy dose of modern dancehall rhythms with Indie showing off her storytelling prowess. Her sultry melodic performance is steeped in Patois accentuating her Caribbean roots. She is quite vivid with the lyrics and puts us right in the middle of the action as we see her weave an all-too-familiar tale of forbidden or should we say secret love between her and a man who is already betrothed.
The accompanying visual goes further by bringing the song to life with its detailed storyboarding that captures Indie's sexual aura and unapologetic demeanour. She is a woman who knows what she wants and plays her role accordingly.
"Situationship" is lifted from her new EP Love Games, an 8-track body of work that sees her working with multi-platinum-selling hitmaker JB Made It, known for his collaborations with the likes of Drake, Central Cee, and Headie One, as well as Maschinemantim (Nines, Youngs Teflon, Trillary Banks), TheorySound, DJ Natz B, and Q Theory, with a guest appearance from UK afrobeats rising star AdeJosh.
Speaking about the inspiration behind her Love Games EP, Indie Amoi says, "Love is a cycle, but when you find the right man, wul arn pon him tight. In other words, while love can often be a cycle filled with challenges and complexities, when you stumble upon the right kind of love or the perfect partner, it's crucial to cling to it. I've always believed in cherishing and fostering that profound bond. Through all of love's highs and lows, securing a genuine connection can be the anchor that brings stability and joy to our lives. This is the essence that courses through my EP, reflecting on the myriad faces of love and the importance of discovering the right soul to embark on that journey with”.
