It takes a special artist to fuse elements of varying genres and eras into a winning formula. Taking a bit of the old and a bit of the new to create a fresh sound requires great skill and care. This is the crux of Douyéism. On her forthcoming sophomore album So Much Love, Nigerian-born, Los Angeles-based singer Douyé (pronounced Doe-Yay) pays homage to the mellow blend of silk and soul made iconic by artists such as Sade, Dianne Reeves, Chanté Moore, Regina Belle, and Rachelle Ferrell. Featuring the musical prowess of fellow Nigerian and multi-platinum producer Dapo Torimiro (John Legend, Justin Bieber, Toni Braxton), Grammy-nominated multi-platinum British songwriter Terry Shaddick (Pointer Sisters, Diana Ross), guitarist/ producer Chris Sholar (Beyoncè, Mariah Carey, Kanye West), JR Hutson (Jill Scott, Musiq, Lalah Hathaway) and Grammy-nominated jazz keyboardist/ producer Philippe Saisse (Chaka Khan, Al Jarreau), So Much Love is a breathtaking tour de force that adeptly revisits the sound of early 90s Urban Adult Contemporary radio with a unique spin. Laced with Douyé’s smoldering vocals and seasoned with elements of jazz, R&B, and a dash of spicy Afrobeat, it goes without saying that So Much Love is destined to be one of the more feted independent releases of 2013.
Douyé continues her musical journey as she currently works on her sophomore music project, set to be released this year. “My goal is to capture the passion I feel for my artistry and be able to fully express depth and veracity in my performances as I connect with the world.” The Nigerian born songstress sound is inviting, soulful and captivating.

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.”
