“‘Run’ is about breaking those boundaries that hold you back from living your best life. It’s about letting go of those fears and letting your mind free,” says Lloyiso on the song.
The upbeat track, which was created by Lloyiso along with Earwulf and Grammy-award-winning producers Mr. Hudson (John Legend, Janelle Monae, Jay-Z) and Stargate (Beyonce, Rihanna, Sam Smith), fuses shimmering keys with a swooning beat and head-nodding claps. He hits a towering high-register on the bridge before his vocals ring out on the refrain, “I’m gonna fly, gonna reach the sky, take up all the space and time. I just wanna run.”
It lands in the wake of the fan favorites “Let Me Love You Now” and “What Would I Say,” which have already racked up millions of streams and counting. Everything just paves the way for his anxiously awaited body of work Seasons in March. Get ready to feel his voice, artistry, and spirit!
His prior single “Speak” has amassed over 8 million streams. Right out of the gate, OkayAfrica touted it as one of “The 20 Best South African Songs of 2022 So Far,” and hailed it as “an emotive, piano-laden ballad that, like most of his songs, highlights his soothing voice.” Additionally, last year he made his international debut with the single “Seasons.” Right out of the gate, it tallied 22 million streams and garnered a ton of buzz. Off of the success of both tracks, Lloyiso was nominated for the “Songwriter of the year | Most Promising Artiste” award at the All Africa Music Awards (AFRIMA) 2022.
