In an age of selfies and perfect tools to filter, crop and present the best image possible to the world, it helps to remember that reality is far different. Seyi Shay does exactly that in her new song titled ‘Air brush.’ Air brush is a beautiful ballad with beautiful chord progressions that flow with Seyi Shay’s vocals leading up to a crescendo and ultimately vocal climax that underscore her point that you can’t fake the truth/reality. It’s a beautiful song worth listening to repeatedly and a reminder to be authentically you, always.
“Top African act & Humanitarian Seyi Shay officially releases the video to her soulful ballad “Airbrush”. The video was shot by top Nigerian video director Matt Maxx in South Africa.
After a very eventful 2016 which has seen her go on tour and showcase herself around the world, the soulful singer for the first time wanted to create a song that forced her to reach deep in her self & her emotions. Airbrush enjoyed a strong reception when it first hit the airwaves due to a leak in 2015, many important people came out to show their appreciation for this soulful ballad that has become one of Seyi Shay’s famous works in her glittering career.
The video which takes a very emotional setting depicts how nothing is really perfect, it might be all smiles on the outside but there is always a reality on the inside which isn’t always pretty. Seyi Shay was recently quoted when she said; “I have realised that nothing is perfect be it relationships, friendships or careers.” this explains where she was coming from with this song.
Airbrush was produced by Grammy Award winner Drew Scott (aka Druski of the Chartbreaker Music Group) and the video can currently be viewed on YouTube (link below). Seyi Shay continues her rise to the top of the pecking order as she continues to wave Africa’s flag highest wherever she goes. Seyi Shay was recently part of a UN campaign aimed at women empowerment as they did a remake of Spice Girls’ 20 year old hit “Wannabe”.”
