tts keisDust hardly settles so fast on spectacular things. Reason – the strength of spectacle has the propensity to repel it. This logic fits squarely with good music – music that spectacularly finds a comfortable spot in every heart that comes across it. Stay, a Rihanna hit whose cover was recorded and dropped into public space by Cameroonian song heroine, Kei, is one of such tracks that will stay longer in the music minds of its everyday listeners. In just a week following Stay’s outing, the remix fetched over a hundred and fifty thousand views on YouTube. That was in 2013. Hilarious!

Two years on, there are very serious speculations that the same scenario may be produced with Cry, Kei’s second single whose official release has been slated for Wednesday, April 15, 2015. “Who knows how loaded this next piece would be – I can’t wait!” Miriam, a young Cameroonian Afro-styled music lover told us. Miriam, who sa

id she is a fan of Kei, explained that Stay had knocked her out as though nothing ever did. “Till date, I can still be caught on it, savouring Stay as though it was my first time to come across itKei was extraordinarily great on that track,” she said.

“I’m awaiting Cry with my fingers crossed, but I can assure you that my girl will do it big again,” Willis, another Kei admirer indicated. He went on: “I only hope we’ll be having that golden voice again.

Just like Miriam and Willis, scores of other African music lovers in general and Cameroonian ones in particular are excited, yet anxious ahead of the USA-based Afro Soul Pop artist’s second release. According to Kei’s communication team, the artist is currently whipped by strong emotions as she braces for the outing she describes as special. And if the release of this new track is special, it is indeed thanks to that fact that Cry has been dexterously made, with the expertise of great people including producer Gemini of the Los Angeles-run Gemini Musiq (known to have produced singers such as Justin Bieber, Mario, Christina Milian, Lil John, etc.).

Upon release, Cry will be available on iTunes, Google, Amazon, Spotify, Sound Cloud, etc. a lyrics video will be on YouTube for those who want to sing along with Kei,” writes I Rep Camer, one of Cameroon’s leading entertainment blogs known for its committed promotion of the country’s culture.

Sung to tell one of the singer’s stories, Cry is a heart-to-heart track from which several love lessons would be drawn. It comes to swell the list of hit contemporary music tracks that have had strong grip on the sector in recent years.
