Bolstered by the unique talents of Algerian born, Tottenham raised R&B singer Miraa May and Compton rapper Buddy, each with their own defiant verse and purpose, “You and Me” blends genres to create a soulful, sun-soaked, romantic soundscape. “I’ve been a fan of both Miraa and Buddy for a minute,” says Moss Kena, “they both encapsulate the attitude of the song, Miraa is a boss and I was thrilled she could bring that energy to the track, she expresses strong self-worth in her lyrics and I think that’s amazing. Buddy reflects the seductive adornment aspect of this song so well, the cocky bravado of a romantic encounter, both so perfectly resonating with the tone of the tune.”
Themes of love and seduction in music can sometimes feel more like a key selling point than an expression of real human emotion, and it can be easy to dismiss songs that discuss such themes as monotonous. Moss Kena offers something special and different from the norm. “The song is a fun, flirtatious bop about a summer love,” he says, “enticing and seductive not 'thinking about forever'”.
