.@leiladey - "Black Bouquet"




Leila truly outdid herself writing the entire EP, with all the production crafted by Toronto's own Zepfire, who's resume stacks names like Big Sean, Roy Wood$, Sean Leon and G-Eazy.  Black Bouquet tells a story about a girl who gets the love she's longed for, excited and optimistic, only to have it challenged by the realities of life and love.  Going through a difficult losing her teenage sister, while stuck in a deteriorating romance, by the end of the EP Leila finds herself vulnerable and exposed.   

Leaving her audience with a need for a follow up, Leila says her writing was inspired by the honesty and transparency her late sister Toya lived by, who the project is dedicated.

A strong follow up to 3:44, her single released January 13th.  3:44 has made several Apple playlist including Ebro's for Beats1 where he even tweeted "Shits Dope Though".  Leila couldn't be better positioned to show the world exactly how ready she is bring to life her DeyDream.
