Who’s the queen in all blue, you ask- let us introduce you to her. It’s Maya J. She’s both an emerging R&B artist and actress. She’s got a new single for us, and oh boy, after listening to this one, we’re in ‘Trouble.’
‘Trouble’ Is A Fierce R&B Track With A Sweet Message
Her sultry yet commanding voice immediately captures our attention as ‘Trouble’ opens backed by a reverberating piano and harmonizing guitar riffs that transforms into a full-bodied R&B vibe with the added pulse from the drums. We can’t help but bop our heads along with this one as the instrumentals continue to wash over us as they swell, incorporating lo-fi tones, like a good H.E.R. track, another R&B queen we are crazy about. It’s catchy, it’s fun, and Maya J got us gushing over ‘Trouble’ all at once.
Like any other pop song currently dominating in the music industry, the lyrics in ‘Trouble,’ co-produced Hulin, are satisfying as they are charming. We easily quick up the words to sing along with Maya J on this love-drenched track that focuses on chasing a crush and those embracing smitten feelings. For that reason, ‘Trouble’ uplifts our spirits from all the sweetness Maya J is giving us in her newest track and inspired us to live our lives wearing pink-tinted and heart-shaped glasses, because our hearts are so full, just as Maya J hoped for!
She’s Also A Queen On The Screen
After putting this on constant repeat, it’s safe to say ‘Trouble’ is our new favorite song of 2021 so far! If you loved it as much as we did, Maya J has a few other tracks in her collection. You should probably check out her previously released single, ‘Hurricane.’
Other than hypnotizing us with her music, Maya Jenkins (but we’ll stick with Maya J because she’s already that iconic to us) is an LA-born actress who’s starred in shows from networks, such as HBO, Nickelodeon, Freeform, and comedy segments such as AwesomenessTV! Be sure to look out for her- we know we will!
