Lady Donli - 'Poison'

‘Poison’ finds her running from someone who is all to content to play games rather than commit to the serious love she’s looking for.

Lady Donli continues her run of high quality singles in 2017 with 'Poison,' her third drop of the year.

The much anticipated track comes as the follow up to ‘Kashe Ni’ and ‘Ice Cream' featuring Tomi Thomas which is consistent with her running theme of dangerous relationships.

‘Poison’ finds her running from someone who is all to content to play games rather than commit to the serious love she’s looking for. She knows his affection will slowly end up ruining her like poison, and as she states in the song, she “wants no part of it”.

The song is produced by Chillz who crafts up a beat that softly lures you in before the drop on the hook which has drums that would be at home on any club dance floor. The beat continues to morph as Chillz brings in electronic and dub step influences as DJ Woske interjects with his own tale of how he’s tired of being played with by the object of his desire.

With additional vocals from rising underground stars Tay Iwar and MalikaHamzaa, ‘Poison’ is another strong entry into Lady Donli’s discography.
