03 December 2021, JOHANNESBURG: CKay, presents two hot new singles titled ‘BY YOUR SIDE’ and ‘Emiliana.’ CKay is no stranger to making amazing music and both songs are a fitting follow up to the global chart topping ‘love nwantiti’ and his 2021 EP ‘Boyfriend’.  Since that EP release, CKay has gone on to become one of the biggest stars in the world, boasting #1’s across the globe including a Global Shazam #1 with ‘love nwantiti’.

Last week saw CKay hit over 1 billion career streams, whilst he now boasts over 30 million monthly listeners on Spotify.

BY YOUR SIDE’ features South African rapper Blxckie and produced by Tumisho, whose current single ‘Sax Dance’ has gained popularity on TikTok. This banger has strong Amapiano influences that CKay seamlessly bodies and stamps with his emo -afro beats signature. Blxckie contributes his effortless flow on the track in both Zulu and English, providing the song with an additional take on the romantic situation. ‘BY YOUR SIDE’ was influenced by CKay having to make a decision between two girls. Although the situation was a bit messy, he ended making the right decision.

Emiliana’ will have his fans completely in their feelings, and with his breezy style of afro beats, that won him acclaim and made him a household name last time out and evident here, it’s sure to have fans new and old swooning. ‘Emiliana’ is a song about a long distance relationship I was in. It’s 2021 and  teleportation hasn’t been invented, which is so unfortunate’ –  says CKay.

 Recorded in both Nigeria and South Africa, both songs embody African music with a sound that travels across borders. ‘BY YOUR SIDE’ and ‘Emiliana’ are bound to take Africa to the World and are hot follow ups for reaffirming CKay as a global star.
