(New York, NY): Today, alt-R&B duo Lo Boii release “Chakra” from their debut project, ‘Sex Doesn’t Sell… Anymore’ (out July 26th via AWAL). The song’s release follows Lo Boii’s first-ever full-length shows, where they graced the stages of Soho House and Rockwood Music Hall to perform their entire project front to back.
“Chakra” shines a light on Lo Boii’s unique ability to blend old-school funk licks and soulful vocal runs with a wholly original take on modern electronica. The reverberating, underwater intro sets up the song’s crisp, confident step, making the track as delicate as it is punchy—and at all points dynamic.

With surprising chorus drops from Aalias (producer/writer)—co-producer of the Grammy-winning Eminem and Rihanna single "The Monster" and DJ Snake and Bipolar Sunshine's worldwide hit "Middle"—and shining falsetto runs from Corey Latif (writer/vocalist)—a two-time Grammy-nominated songwriter who’s written for Usher (“Crash”), The Roots, Saint Jhn, Snakehips, Two Feet, Chris Brown, and more—“Chakra” is a gem from a project that’s bound to catch ears from an array of modern circles.
