Crafted during an inspired late-night session in London, the track immerses listeners in a realm of desire, vividly described by Jazz Alonso: 

"Set by the sea at night, eating black grapes and drinking dark rum, a lover is in the ocean, asking you to join them. You take off your clothes and chains and pass from having a fantasy to becoming the fantasy."

Her sound deeply connected with me, and our partnership unfolded seamlessly." In terms of production, Lag has partnered with Grammy-nominated UK producer GG (Gabrielle Stok): "The inception of 'Oke' was spontaneous; Jazz initiated the idea, crafting the flow and lyrics on the spot, with GG and myself completing the song that very evening."
