The Bay Area is a hotbed right now for emerging talent of all types. The latest to take the spotlight and cover our #OnTheRise series is Richmond, CA, native Rayana Jay. The 22-year-old singer and songwriter shares her new track “Sleepy Brown”, inspired by the career of Sleepy Brown and Atlanta’s Organized Noize production crew. The soulful mid-tempo cut finds Rayana Jay embracing all of the Southern mannerisms of “cool” with both sweet and slick talk throughout the summer-laden track. “Sleepy Brown” proves to be a charming and grand arrival for the songbird, who penned the entire song on her own. The song rides a rollercoaster of vivid scenes ranging from flirting and riding in cars to the everlasting afterparty excursions encountered in our 20s.
Enjoy all of the vibes from Jay’s “Sleepy Brown” below, produced by Mikos Da Gawd.
