SOTD: Satellites by Ravyn Lenae

Hypnos by Ravyn Lenae

Chicago-born and Los Angeles-based singer and songwriter Ravyn Lenae officially releases her debut album, Hypnos, via Atlantic Records. The new album features producers and artists Kaytranada, Steve Lacy, Luke Titus, Monte Booker, Smino, Foushee, Phoelix, Mereba, Teo Halm and IAMNOBODI in addition to the previously released tracks “Xtasy,” “M.I.A.,” “Light Me Up” and “Skin Tight.” Hypnos marks the first full-length release from Ravyn since her 2018 EP Crush.

“Satellite” is a fabulous cut from Ravyn Lenae’s debut album Hypnos. Ravyn’s approach to the hook couldn’t be better. You can hear Steve Lacy’s signature chords in the production and he is joined by Luke Titus, who does a bulk of the production on the album as well as the great Monte Booker. “Satellite” is the embodiment of smooth.

Speaking about the project, Ravyn shares, “When you listen to the music, I hope you have a better understanding of me and even catch a better understanding of yourself… As artists, we make music as a pathway to help other people understand certain aspects of their lives. I’ve gone through the tunnels and seen the light on the other side. I’m finding my way. I’m clearer on who I am and my power through music and lyricism. I’m pouring more into me, friendships, family, and music. Through all of that, I’m fulfilled.”
