December in the city

Since releasing the airy and melodic number, “The Sun (Icarus)” back in the summer of 2020, London-based Nigerian-German singer and songwriter 234jaydaa has not released any solo material—till now. Arriving yesterday, 234jaydaa’s latest single “234” finds the singer exploring the hustle and bustle of Lagos and its nightlife scene.

Using the country’s dialling code (+234) as the song’s title, the new single finds the singer painting a visual picture for listeners who have never travelled to the West African city. “December in Lagos, you know the vibes/It’s up every night, demons of a different kind,” she sings on the song’s mesmerising hook, ushering in the festive December period in a melodious way. “234” also highlights her mental state and thoughts she garnered during her stay at home from the effects of the pandemic. During her time away she experimented with new sounds and vocals thus contributing to the song being different from her usual take.

Speaking about the single, Jaydaa shares: “I had a lot of time in lockdown to create and learn new things, much like everyone else I know, so I decided not to shy away from what I was growing into and indulge in whatever I was diving into,” she says. “Most of it is about me accepting myself and learning how to be better for the people around me but it’s also about the part of me I don’t like and people don’t like as well – I embrace all of it,” says Jayda on “234” and her path to growth.
