OKENYO - Buckle Up

OKENYO - Buckle Up
espected and renowned for her meticulous crafting of music that pushes the boundaries, OKENYO’s artistry reflects the fluidity and changing perceptions of hip-hop and R&B, as created by Australian musicians.

The release of OKENYO’s EP THE WAVE in 2018, fans and newcomers were on the receiving end of a powerful statement. OKENYO captured attention with effervescence and revitalised charm, coming off the back of successful tours and writing sessions that proved momentous for the artist.

Evocative and passionate, OKENYO’s presence on record became matched onstage, with enthusiastic crowds building in loyalty and number. The artistic versatility and strength that fans had heard from OKENYO on Urthboy’s ‘Second Heartbeat’, not to mention her own ‘10 Feet Tall’ release, was further animated with the defining single, ‘Woman’s World’. With a voice striking stronger than ever before, ‘Woman’s World’ proved demonstrative of OKENYO’s creative fervour and bold approach to lyrical delivery, coating pointed messages in slick raps that were likened to the talents of Frank Ocean and Janelle Monae.

Working with songwriter Lionel Towers on the fiery follow up in ‘Hang Your Hat’, OKENYO began laying the foundations for what promises to be a powerful 2019 of new music.

About this track...

Empowered by a sexy bassline and fierce lyricism, OKENYO brings us Buckle Up; an ode to dancefloor hook-ups and bold flirting. A courageous comeback for this multifaceted artist, the track sees OKENYO with more conviction than ever before proudly wearing her queerness on her sleeve.
