This timeless collection navigates the intricate landscapes of love’s complexities, heartbreak, and societal reflections, showcasing Kia’s limitless creativity as both a storyteller and performer.

The EP’s opener, “did you love me” sets the tone with its infectious old-school R&B vibes, melded with an upbeat rhythm, striking bassline, and powerful synths. Kia’s soulful vocals depict feelings of loneliness and loss, seamlessly transitioning into heartfelt rap bars, capturing the essence of heartbreak and longing.

“promise” emerges as a standout track, boasting ear-catching background vocalization atop a silky-smooth and compelling R&B soundscape. Kia’s emotive delivery adds depth, harmonizing seamlessly with the anthem-like hook, “That’s what you promised, that’s what you promised me” that will keep on playing over your head long after the final notes fade away.

“winning” bursts forth with futuristic sounds, blending resounding 808s, synths, and a compelling bassline, while Kia effortlessly straddles the lines between singing and rapping, crafting an empowering anthem of self-assurance.

Closing the EP, “i wasn’t supposed to be like this” takes a turn towards social and political commentary, laying bare Kia’s rap prowess and lyrical depth. The captivating hook, “I wasn’t supposed to be like this” sets the tone for the song as Kia goes on a thought-provoking lyrical exploration of societal issues, unapologetically addressing pertinent matters without hesitation.
