By  | 

Exactly a month ago, Love Keyyz, released the single and visual, “Life Worth Living.” Now on the one-month anniversary of the single, Love Keyyz releases her sophomore album, “I Could Be Dreaming.” Fans don’t fret, “Life Worth Living,” is on Love Keyyz’s new album. “I Could Be Dreaming” touches on topics of love, lust, loyalty, hurt, healing, and more. The album does so in a storytelling fashion in which the songs can almost be seen as acts in a play.

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. It is a varied R&B/Soul album. “I Could Be Dreaming” is one of those albums that you appreciate more and more as you listen, so press play, sit back, and let “I Could Be Dreaming” put you in a trance.

Love Keyyz is a Cincinnati native, Los Angeles-based singer-songwriter, pianist, and model. Love Keyyz grew up in the inner city, constantly facing adversity, but her drive, motivation, and hard work towards a vision that only she could see made her stand out. In 2010, she began making YouTube videos that showcased her personality and raw singing talent. As Love Keyyz started gaining traction from the videos, she started writing her own music in 2012 and taught herself how to play piano. In 2018, the songstress moved to L.A. True to her name, Love Keyyz’s discography consists of plenty of love songs. Shortly after her move to L.A., in 2019, Love Keyyz released her most notable project, “Naked.” The EP, “Naked,” was executively produced and written entirely by Love Keyyz, and garnered a lot of attention. “Naked” peaked at #59 on Apple Music’s R&B Top 200 – a feat she accomplished with no marketing and no record label. Being in Los Angeles encouraged her to be a better musician, so she enrolled in music school later that year; recently graduating with 4 certificates and 2 degrees in music. Studying with two of L.A.’s finest private instructors helped her cultivate her already tremendous sound, and with those skills, Love Keyyz created her newly released, critically acclaimed album, “I Could Be Dreaming.”
