Lukey & K.eena – OCEANA

Philadelphia-based artist and producer Lukey joins forces with K.eena in their newest single “OCEANA,” a genre-fluid track bursting with rich production, upbeat lyricism, and timeless melodies. It marks the artist’s first single of 2021 and serves as a quick reminder to why fans have so eagerly awaited his return– since his debut in 2016, Lukey continues to build up a decorated resume that includes over 2.3 million global streams and placements on Spotify’s coveted Soultronic, Fresh Finds, Fresh Finds: Indie, and Fresh Finds: Pop playlists.

After a pivotal year of self-care and reflection, Lukey enters this new chapter with a noticeably matured sound. Over an infectious, synth-heavy R&B/Pop beat, he and fellow Philly-native K.EENA embark on a mood-boosting journey teeming with modern nostalgia. The release brings listeners back to a golden age of songwriting, one not categorized by overly complex lyricism but rather a universal call-to-action. The song’s infectious hook puts it best: “Don’t just stand there! Why don’t you let yourself go?”

Here’s what Lukey had to say about his latest bouncy bop:

“Within these times of lockdown and uncertainty, I’ve felt the collective longing for a good dance with the homies – while cliché, I recall those trashed-apartment, tequila-infused nights of undergrad and letting go to Daft Punk, Rihanna, and Toro y Moi. So yeah, this song begs you to dance. K.eena and I plead: just let yourself go!”
