Olivia Swann has released a brand new track entitled, Gaslight, featuring the super talented LionHaire. Simmering with rich R&B vocals, reggae rhythms, layered live horns and bass licks, the single has an undeniable groove that exhibits Olivia’s ability to churn out banger after banger. Originally written as a demo for Rihanna, the London-based singer-songwriter decided to take the track and twist it into a refreshingly raw insight into gaslighting and power play, with her quick-witted lyricism and abundance of attitude adding a punchy edge to the verses.
“I don’t think we talk enough about the power of seduction in a relationship and how sometimes someone can use intense chemistry to blur and confuse the reality of a situation” she explains, “In my case, it was finally figuring out that you’re not crazy, they are! Ultimately recognizing their serious obsession with me, I wish I could have told myself to wake up!”.
A collaboration with fellow UK artist and multi-instrumentalist LionHaire, whose sun-soaked authentic Reggae sounds melt perfectly into the melody, their contrasting vocals weave beautifully within one another, and with a glossy production finish from Symphony (ZAYN, Timbaland), it could just be Olivia’s best release yet.
