After losing his fiance in April this year, AKA bears it all on his latest single with a special birthday dedication to Anele Tembe with Tears Run Dry. Opening the song with a somber hook over a cherubic sample, AKA expresses;
'First thing on my mind, when I wake up.
I cannot feel sunshine, because you not by my side.
Nothing else - can replace us
Tried to break down and cry but all my tears run dry.'
AKA reflects on the life they had together, from their daily routines to all the plans they had made for the future together. Ending the song on a more cheerful note, making reference to 50 Cent's - In Da Club.
'Go Nellie, It's your birthday
We gon party like, it's your birthday
Cranberry, mixed with Champagne
In Heaven, with your Mommy.'
AKA has always been someone who wears his heart on his sleeve and puts it all in the music. Hopefully this song helps others dealing with the loss of a loved one and bring you a sense of comfort. Happy birthday to Anele Tembe in Heaven.;
