EasternChild Put You On: Xenia Manasseh’s “Phases”

The R&B production on “Phases” is mellow and atmospheric, providing a backdrop for a bittersweet exploration of love’s ups and downs. The lyrics poetically capture the push-and-pull of understanding and being understood, as Manasseh delicately asks: “Do you really stick around just out of pride, or do you truly believe you couldn’t love me properly?”

Since releasing her debut EP Fallin’ Apart in 2019, Xenia Manasseh has slowly but surely been winning over listeners around the world, from Nairobi to London and LA to Lagos. The COLORS-approved artist has continued to make waves through her relatable and honest takes on love and life, delivered in musical moments like the recent LOVE / HATE Pt. 1 – Manasseh’s highly anticipated debut album, which hears her infuse her Swahili culture with Western R&B motifs for a unique artistic experience.

Alongside collaborations with stars like Mr. Eazi, Tay Iwar and Sauti Sol, Manasseh’s industry acclaim for her catalogue spans far and wide, picking up co-signs from Evening Standard, Notion Magazine, The Floor Magazine and New Wave Magazine in the UK, to US tastemakers like Hypebeast, VIBE, BET Soul, Ones to Watch, ThisIsRNB and Raydar Magazine as well as OkayAfrica and The Native in Africa.

Now backed by a wealth of new life experience, the Spotify RADAR Africa artist’s sensational new music is sure to demonstrate her artistic growth and impeccable pen game – a skill Manasseh has further refined by cutting tracks with Brandy, Teyana Taylor and Big Sean.
