Anais Aida – Watchawannado

Born in Toulouse, France to a Senegalese father and French mother, raised in Ireland, France, Senegal, and California, Anais was quite the cultured globetrotter before she even honed in on her passion as a singer-songwriter. Her background and travels have undoubtedly influenced her sound; a sound that often recalls the non-conventional rhythms present in her African heritage, the vocal stylings of classic and modern soul artists, and the attitude of contemporary R&B. Anais mixes and strips all of her influences down to their bare essentials, creating a captivating aural experience. Her latest work is a funneling of a world of influences through a softly focused lens, exploring love and loss and the white-hot reality of connecting with those that influence our lives every day. Her breakout single “Love Can Burn,” produced by Erin Rioux and Alejandro “Arca” Ghersi, found Anais struggling to reconcile a past love gone wrong, while the follow up “True (Fire In My Bones)” burns slowly as a meditative self-reflection on individual triumph. Both employ sweeping, dramatic instrumentation over which Anais’ rich, emotive voice.

Anais Aida – Watchawannado Lyrics:
Think slow cause the weed lit
Exactly what I needed
How can we save this?
You’re red eyed, Oooh

Exaggerate the senses
Emotions are undressed
Nobody can touch us
I’m open, For more

Hook
Every night in my baby’s arms
Hold me like
There is no tomorrow
So watchawannadoo X3

Verse 2
Eyelids heavy, morning-like
Sleeping, my body ain’t ready
I’m feeling numb
Plenty doubts in my, holding out for my
Moments of paralysis, no analysis will do
Your eyes still closed, I’m closer
Your breath lands on me now it’s over
I think I wanna stay in all day
What would people say

Hook
Every night in my baby’s arms
Hold me like
There is no tomorrow
So whatchawannadoo X3
