Aáyanna – Can You Take It

One of America’s biggest R&B prospects this year will be Aáyanna, who today unveils her latest single, entitled ‘Can You Take It’.

Working with acclaimed producer Juberlee, the song looks at the moments when you begin to reveal parts of your personality – be they good or bad – to a potential lover.

“My inspiration for ‘Can You Take It’ came from the guitar itself. I loved how sensual and raw it sounded, so it urged me to write a song that felt seductive and like only the listener and I exist when it’s being played. The lyrics are bold and straightforward but metaphorically, I’m also asking if you can take me at my best and worst. Can you take how big and complex my personality is and what obligations come with me. At its core, ‘Can You Take It’ is about wanting to feel desired even after showing someone those parts of yourself.”

The track follows on from Aáyanna’s debut release ‘Risky’, which has accumulated more than 100k streams on Spotify and received countless endorsements from some of the world’s biggest tastemakers.


New Music: Aáyanna

Freshly signed to buzzy LA-based label Avant Garden (home to Emotional Oranges, Chiiild, Unusual Demont and more), Aáyanna looks set to become one of the most interesting newcomers to emerge from the States in 2023.

Crafting sounds alongside producer Juberlee (credited for works with Playboi Carti, Smino and Big Latto), Aáyanna delivers a finessed fusion of R&B, alternative pop and indie.

New single ‘Risky’ showcases this starlet’s potential perfectly, and treats listeners to a melodic track that feels both future-forward and classic in style.

“‘Risky’ is about taking your power back. It’s about cutting ties with people and situations that no longer serve you. It’s also about having fun, sometimes we take life too seriously and realise that we aren’t enjoying it. Risky is the definition of work, play and having your way.”
