Fresh Music Friday: Fola - Come My Way _________________________________ Fola's "Come My Way" is the kind of track that makes you want to find the nearest dance floor, grab a partner, and get your shimmy on! The afrobeat inflected track is our song of the week because it brings a feel-good year-round summertime vibe that we're proud to add to our playlists. _________________________________ Though this song makes the listener want to do a mean two-step, it was interesting to learn that London-based singer/songwriter faced a creative hurdle when creating this single. During our email chat throughout the week, he shared his insight on creating Come My Way and the most important lesson he has learned being in the music industry. _________________________________ Musik !D TV: Come My Way is so light and refreshing to the ear; a good listen. Tell us the process of writing and producing this track. Fola: I was cleaning the bathroom and a melody came into my head, all I kept saying was 'sweet loving'. Recorded it on my phone and went to studio with Musiek Mambu. Initially it didn't go down well, so I left it for like 2 weeks - I didn't want to leave the music as i knew i had something i needed to say. Fast track 2 weeks i revisited the song, took all the instruments out and just kept the drums and percussion, all of a sudden i started singing Come My Way, then I knew I had the right song and message I wanted to express through song. From there I got my friend Femi V to play guitar and he also co-produced the track. I also had a melody idea for a saxophone [my favourite instrument] so i got a saxophone player called Ade to play in the pre-chorus. _________________________________ MIDTV: The music video for Come My Way is so fun and stylish. How did you and director EDXPH decide on the creative direction for the visual? _________________________________ To see the full interview…visit…www.musikidtv.com _________________________________ If you'd like your latest single to be featured, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
