Songstress & soulful songwriter Arika Kane has released her much anticipated single, "Chains" today Friday (oct. 06).
"Musically I wanted to get back to my roots and my love for R&B on this record. The lyrics express the process and transition that most go through after heartbreak. It’s based on a personal experience of mine that I felt needed to be expressed in song in knowing that many people have been through it at some point in their lives and can relate to the same experience," explains Arika.
The new sultry single was written and produced by Arika Kane, Lou Humphrey and Jasmon Joyner.
Arika earlier this year released her rendition of the classic, "Love Makes A Woman" by Barbara Acklin and it became a certified top-10 single across streaming charts.
