Wafia – “Heartburn”
Wafia is an R&B/pop singer-songwriter/producer based in Brisbane, Australia, and she is gearing up to release her debut EP, titled XXIX, on November 20th. After hearing her captivating voice on Ta-Ku‘s “American Girl“, I decided to check her out.
“Heartburn” is the first and only single that has been released from her forthcoming album. Over a downtempo percussion-driven beat, produced by Ta-Ku and Andrei Eremin, Wafia unveils a tender part of herself where she sings about ignoring her gut when she first sensed that someone was bad for her and, after going with her heart, she came out on the other side heartbroken by lies and betrayal. Listen to the song below.
Describing the album on Facebook, Wafia said, “XXIX is 29 in Roman numerals, which pertains to the atomic number for Copper.” She explained a little bit more after a fan asked the reasoning behind Copper, to which she replied, “Copper is a transitional metal which means it’s always in a state of transition/change – kinda like me right now.”
