American singer Jhené Aiko has a new single entitled Lead the Way for the movie Raya and The Last Dragon (in theatres March 5, 2021). The song is about unity and perseverance through hard times.
The music is R&B mixed with some Pop. The sound is upbeat and smooth with a fantastic and memorable rhythm. The music is soothing and relaxing. It reminds me of classical Oriental music- traditional with a modern twist, including meditation music. The composition is well-structured with rich, intricate notes.
Jhené Aiko’s voice is incredible and smooth. She has an impressive vocal range throughout this song. She captures the essence of this tune with confident yet soft singing.
The lyrics are empowering and inspirational. There’s a well-thought-out use of repetition to emphasize the importance of hope, strength and unity. The song’s message is positive and optimistic, which is essential when dealing with hard times in life. The simplicity of the lyrics is remarkable, making them easier to remember. The words are well-written and flowy, with great use of poetry.
