ayokay – Sleepless Nights (feat. Nightly)

ayokay’s music is buzzing with life and electricity similar to the neon lights across all of artwork. His music feels like a hazy, humid summer night spent traversing the city with friends and a significant other attached to your arm the entire time. It sounds so fresh and so new, yet the vibe is timeless. The production is insanely top notch with every second is detailed while Nightly delivers silky smooth vocals that help bring the vibe I mentioned to life. I’d love to hear this while actually making my around or on a movie’s soundtrack – either way would be totally fitting!

In the past I spent a lot of sleepless nights stressing over the past, future, and present. It was so easy to get caught up in all the bullshit and spend hours laying in bed thinking about what could’ve been and what will be. These days I avoid the unnecessary stress of over complementing my life through outlets like meditation (40 minutes a day!), journaling, and talking with friends about my thoughts and feelings rather than internalizing them. Once you bring healthy coping mechanisms into your life, there’s no need to experience those nights that feel like they’re never going to end.
