Ghana-based singer and songwriter of Cameroonian descent, T’neeya wraps up an uplifting message of self-belief on a soothing and reflective song titled “Hype Means Nothing”.
Renowned for her graceful eccentricity and avant-garde Anglo-Franco sound which combines elements of soul, afrobeat and highlife; the sultry singer kick-started her career off the back of covers, and has over the past few years stringed together an impressive line up original compositions including: “Low Battery“, “Text Me“, “Bend It” and “Joli“.
With the date of release coinciding with her birthday, “Hype Means Nothing” marks T’neeya’s sophomore 2020 outing, and sees her reconnect with go-to producer WebieJustDidIt, who also receives production credits on earlier released “Free Your Mind”.
Written and performed in French, English and Pidgin English, the song in itself is an epiphany – an ode to the underdog. Speaking on the inspiration behind her latest release, T’neeya said:
“I wrote and recorded at a point in my life when I felt neglected and depressed. My world was crashing down. People I thought I could count on disappointed me when I needed them most. I had hit rock bottom and didn’t know what to do. Every day I would wake up and consciously think of good old memories. I would envision myself living my best life. I did that constantly. That was how I got myself out of the gloomy and sad place.”
Wrapping up an uplifting message of self-believe in a soothing blend of soul and afrobeats, “Hype Means Nothing” makes a perfect birthday gift from T’neeya to her ardent listeners.
