Following the release of her silky smooth single “Indulge”, South East London’s Laolu returns with the sensual new cut “Show & Prove,”
Seeking emotional honesty and respect from a partner, “Show & Prove” is imbued with Laolu’s honeyed lyrical inflections and a soft smattering of R&B melodies. Glossy rhythms and bold brass accompaniments float over the rich soundscape as she questions the sincerity of her partner’s declarations of love.
“‘Show & Prove’ is about feeling uncertain when someone wants to take things to the next step,” she explains. “You’ve heard that they’re a bit of a player and now you’re like’ why should I trust that you’re really all about me – you need to show me with your actions to prove that you’re serious about being all in.”
Finding inspiration from her darkest moments, Laolu formed a kinship with music at just twelve years old which grew and blossomed into her adult years.
