It’s been 5 years since the release of Higher Ground; yet Wayna has kept her place in our ears with appearances on Eric Roberson’s “Wanna Believe it Again” and the remix of “Billy Club” ft. Wale and a host of collaborations in the interim. The latter song was originally a collaboration with the talented singer and producer, Muhsinah. Alas, I digress… This post is about Wayna’s latest release, “I Don’t Wanna Wait”, which I first heard live during her performance at Drom in NYC in July. After sitting on this song for about a week, eager to share. Finally, I can share!
“I Don’t Wanna Wait” is Wayna’s first release from her up coming EP, entitled The Expats which is due for release in October. The song is a piano-based composition that boasts anthem like hook that trails into a beautiful harmonic, “I don’t wanna wait” reminiscent of Bob Marley’s background singers. Teaming up with German Producer, Farhot, Wayna sings of the resolve of a woman who has been waiting for the promise/prospect of what her life has in store (love), so she takes the chance and opens herself . No more walls, no more wondering. Self-empowerment in true Wayna Wondwoosen fashion. Wait ’til you see the video!
The lyrics: “Turtle in it’s shell only knows it’s springtime by it’s smell” give you the imagery and metaphor from which you can derive the premise. So wait no longer! Click play, and let Wayna’s unmistakable voice take you to a refreshing space of freedom to love and receive love… And life’s possibilities…
