Today, rising R&B singer and songwriter CYM announced the release of her new single, “Karma.” The song was officially released on October 9th and will mark CYM’s first single from her upcoming EP, Love CYM set to launch late December 2019. It was produced by Grammy-winning duo Ayo N Keyz (Cardi B, Chris Brown, Jaden Smith).
“I am so excited about my new single ‘Karma’ and wanted to reconnect with my loyal fans while showing a different aspect of my creativity. I had the opportunity to work on this single with Ayo N Keyz to help me bring my vision for this song to life. The song is about pent up anger and frustration from a relationship that felt one-sided with no reciprocity. Writing this song was cathartic because it was coming from personal experience, and I know so many people can relate to moving on from bad relationships on to something better,” says CYM.
CYM first burst on the scene in the summer of 2016. Her infectious hit Bombs Away was released with much fanfare. The accompanying music/video received thousands of streams on YouTube and plays on Soundcloud as well as spins from radio stations around the country. The success of Bombs Away earned CYM an opening spot on Tory Lanez’, “I Told You” tour. Her debut album Shadows developed in collaboration with K Mack, Liana Banks, Yobo, J-Dot and Rocc featured songs inspired by her musical tastes. It possesses references to pop, R&B, Latin and Caribbean music. Critics praised CYM’s previous single, “Gun Play,” featuring Rich Homie Quan for its trap-infused beat with a twist of pop.
Ayo N Keyz asserts, “When we first heard CYM’s vocals on Shadows, we knew she had something different to offer. Few talents today have the ability to fuse musical genres with such ease. When the opportunity presented itself to collaborate on Love CYM, we jumped on it. We were thrilled to be part of the process and can’t wait for people to hear this exciting new sound.” For more information, please follow @iamcym on Instagram.
