Love Keyyz’s Sophomore Album Has Something for Everybody
Love Keyyz makes her feelings known and keeps listeners engage with piano “keyyz” and boisterous, euphonious vocals. “I Could Be Dreaming” discusses a love story gone bad. The album/story is based off of Love Keyyz’s past relationship. The contrast between the records makes “I Could Be Dreaming” feel like a double album. “It’s sort of a Side A/Side B project. Heaven and hell, so to speak,” Love Keyyz states. “I Could Be Dreaming” begins with songs about what real love feels like – that true, strong, seemingly unbreakable love. But, then [the album] descends into the pain that derived from the relationship, and later ends with her healing process and growth. Love Keyyz states: “Love comes with a risk. We don’t always get our fairytale, and that’s okay. But, love is so amazing. Love is why life is worth living.”
“I Could Be Dreaming” was written entirely by Love Keyyz, which allowed her to keep the album genuine and sincere. Not only did she write the album, but she had a hand in the production of the album as well. She based her writing ideas around chord progressions that she composed on the piano. Love Keyyz enlisted her favorite and über-talented pianists Antoine Franklin and Jordan Jackson to add musical elements to the jams. Wasay Waqar produced two tracks, and mixed/mastered the entire album.
“I Could Be Dreaming” is an album that does not allow for skipping or shuffling, but listeners wouldn’t even want to. The album has various sounds and takes from different genres, so everyone can enjoy. “I Could Be Dreaming” delivers upbeat 90s nostalgia, Pop vibes, catchy hooks, and so much more.
