Mayé Releases Club-Friendly New Single “Catch Cold”

Mayé is a fast-rising AfroPop who first burst onto the scene in 2018 with viral demos “Calm Down” and “Let Me Love You.” Today, he makes his formal introduction with the debut single “Catch Cold.” The song is a catchy afrobeat-infused track that details the unappreciation of a former lover. For Mayé, the song was inspired by a real-life situation regarding an ex-girlfriend and himself.

“This track is about a guy throwing shade at an ex-lover who didn’t appreciate him while they were in a relationship,” says the rising star on the song’s concept. “And broke up with him because he was broke, but now that his luck has changed for the better, he wants to throw it back in her face. It is a very catchy song and will resonate with many people, especially anyone that felt abandoned by their lover or friends because their finances were still catching up.”

“Catch Cold” opens on creamy, twirling tones rolling into a syncopated rhythm highlighted by a fat, rumbling bassline. Mayé’s beguiling voice imbues the lyrics with delicious sonic flavors as radiant harmonies give the tune depth and dimension. A glimmering breakdown at the end shifts the harmonics, infusing the tune with evocative layers of voices.

“Catch Cold” sets up the road to Mayé debut project, scheduled for a 2023 release. The debut single has accumulated a mass following and streaming numbers across all music streaming platforms. For newfound fans, you can continue to follow Mayé on social media for daily updates and more.

“Catch Cold” is available on all platforms via Quville Limited.
