R&B/Pop singing sensation, Kyla Nicole, has just released her brand new single, 11th Hour.
“The story behind the title is very tongue-in-cheek to be honest. We were actually set to release another song called Soul4, and being a creative, I decided to change my mind in the dying seconds 2 days before our release date. I went into studio, wrote a brand new song and released that instead. Just before Soul4. So I thought the name 11th Hour would be fitting.” she said.
The soulful ballad reminds us that even though relationships are not always rainbows and butterflies, it’s still worth fighting for. “To me this song is more about fighting for what you have. If it comes easy, it will also go easy. Anything beautiful in this world is worth the fight. Every relationship has its flaws,” explains Kyla. “We argue a lot, we fight, but instead of walking away when things go bad, rather fight for what you have.”
Though it can be a tough, demanding and sometimes unforgiving industry, Kyla says that she would “like to think the relationship I have with music is the one constant that has kept me going all these years. Far from just a job or a passion, it’s my escape, my solitude, my happiness and what keeps me going and pushing on.”
The 26-year-old singer/songwriter is no stranger to the music industry. Kyla’s debut single, Summer Rain (2016), spent 13 weeks on the SA Top 30 and got voted hottest new song on 5FM, quite the introduction for the newcomer. Three more songs followed, all of them achieving commercial success. Feeling For You (2017) also charted on South African radio, while All Around The World (2017) went straight to Nr 1 on YFM. Feelings (2018) debuted at Nr 2 on the Jazz charts on iTunes and stayed on the charts for more than 10 weeks. So if Kyla’s previous success is anything to go by, her latest release is also set to be a chart-topper.
