Call in to speak with the host
Talk about down for whatever. She’s a diva who hails from Nigeria and elicits the memories of legends like Billie Holiday and Sarah Vaughn. And her musical collaborator hails from, well, the rodent family. Interviewed on The PM Show, Douyé recounts how she came to write her hit single Life Is Good. “That song was literally inspired by a squirrel. I went to a park where I normally jog every morning and I encountered this squirrel that just kept following me around. So I got tired of this and just sat down and started asking it, ‘How are you?’ and ‘What are you up to?'’’ she tells host Philippe Matthews. “I laughed so hard that day. I felt so at ease, so blissful. Then the squirrel followed me to my car, and I sat there for over two hours, just talking with the squirrel. When I finally had to leave, the melody of Life Is Good popped into my head.”
It's good to talk.
