Keyondra Lockett is set to release her debut solo album this summer and just released a new song from it called “Try.” The new music, produced by Tedy P, comes after a trying time for the singer who revealed why she had been a bit ghost.
“For the past year I’ve struggled vocally. Honestly, it was more of a confidence issue than anything and something I could control with a few adjustments, but an issue nonetheless,” Keyondra wrote on Instagram. “I was so afraid of my voice cracking, I would pass opportunities to sing. Yea yea, I should know how to improvise, but improvising was the last thing on my mind. To be honest, I didn’t want to sing anymore.”
She went on to explain that “it takes trying again and again to overcome a battle,” accomplish a goal and getting over the things that are holding you hostage. Hence, her new song, “Try.”
