“We ain’t gotta talk about it, baby. But don’t you love it when it’s raining. I’ll try to say it like a lady. But when you go down I feel like I’ve made it. We ain’t gotta talk about it, baby. Just know my feelings never fading. The way you do it it’s amazing. Birthday suit this is an occasion.” – lyrics

‘Arena’ tells a sensual tale of a desirable young woman who shares a big romantic relationship with a guy who she adores very much.

Apparently, their romance ain’t no small show, it’s an arena affair where no puppy love exists. Later, the woman admits that her beau does it so amazing that he makes her go all night long.  

‘Arena’ contains a relatable storyline, ear-welcoming vocals, and rhythmic instrumentation flavored with afrobeat, tropical, and international dance elements.

“‘Arena’ is a celebration of love. It’s a beautiful show you can watch. I’m super pumped and ready to release all of this music that I’ve been holding on to for so long. ‘Arena’ is just the beginning, as I’ve been focusing on putting together an EP. The experience has been a welcome and exciting change as I had gotten so used to writing for others. Now I’m able to use my own voice for my own music.” – Dyo

Dyo, previously known as Ms D, is one of the best-kept secrets in the songwriting world. She has written songs for Maroon 5, Fifth Harmony, and Iggy Azalea to name a few.
