Queer South African singer/songwriter Kaein Cruz recently released their infectious summer afro-pop bop,  “I Lay.”

Through potent vocals and the universal language of musical expression, the infectious new anthem takes you on an upward spiral journey of curiosity, expansion, pure joy and ecstasy.

“I wrote this song in an hour and honestly it just flowed straight out of me,” says Kaien in a press statement.

“I wanted to portray the feeling of total ease in love and life. ‘I Lay’ is my pure expression of what it means to be in love and connection without the toxicity of ego.”

Kaien Cruz (they/them), a proud Queer and non-binary singer-songwriter, hit the ground running when their debut single “Love Me In The Dark” rose to the top of the South African charts and earned a prestigious nomination for Song of the Year at the South African Music Awards.

That success caught the eye of Justin Bieber who hand-picked Cruz to open his sold out Purpose Tour resulting in Cruz’s first major performance in front of a crowd of 90,000.

Inspired, Cruz released two EP’s independently and made their way to LA in 2022 for their first U.S. tour including appearances at SXSW and Governor’s Ball.

“I Lay” is available now on all major music platforms.
