Singled Out: Just Ivy's Paradise (featuring Akon)
I wanted to my debut single to be a fun, up-beat party record. So, jumping off from that, I felt like the lyrics and theme should embody this breezy, summery, blissful vibe to it. I love the beach, the sea, surfing, exciting locations and secret getaways, and these were all elements that I wanted to incorporate into the record. So, when my team and I reviewed the song options we were working with, "Paradise," naturally stuck out as the perfect song. It has all of the happy, fun, sexy elements I was looking for.
When my team and I were brainstorming over the right artist to feature on the hook and Akon's name came up, it was like, Stop everything!! This is THE ONE!!! So, we reached out to him, and miraculously, he was available to work with me and the rest was.....Paradise! Working with Akon was a blast! He just makes everyone feel good and he inspired me to be at my best.
Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself right here!
