Turning the page to another creative chapter, “Used To” evokes ’90s vibes with its soulful undercurrent. The track revolves around a sample of “Sitting in the Park” by Billy Stewart. Over this throwback soundscape, Kenya Vaun delivers a soulful and nostalgic love song that showcases her unparalleled vocal versatility. She weaves a narrative that transcends eras while paying homage to the enduring spirit of classic love stories. Her dynamic delivery and heartfelt lyrics invite listeners to immerse themselves in the warmth of a bygone era, where love was pure, passionate, and stood the test of time.

Flaunting her mic skills, Kenya sings passionately, “You remind me of that old school loving, baby, no I’m not bluffing.” The accompanying visual follows Kenya on a day in the life through the neighborhood that transports viewers to a world of timeless romance as she strolls the neighborhood viewing the day-to-day interactions of the people who experience relationships as a whole.

“Can’t believe you waited for me.”

“‘Used To’ is about someone finally receiving the love that they’ve always wanted but aren’t used to receiving. In this generation, a lot of people get bored really fast and move on. I approached from the perspective of ‘old school love.’ My definition of ‘old school love’ is someone who stays there unconditionally throughout the good and the bad times.” – Kenya Vaun explained

Kenya Vaun channels timeless soul from a fresh and fiery perspective. Born and raised in Philadelphia, she immediately gravitated towards music as a child. Over time, she quietly honed her voice until friends urged her to post “Kick It” online. 2018 saw her captivate listeners with her independent favorite “Movie Night.” 2022’s “Bout’ Me” preceded her signing to 300 Entertainment. As a showstopping performer, Kenya ignited the “BLACK GIRLS ROCK! FEST” at The Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. Now, she stands primed to usher in a new era of soul and R&B on her terms.

“I’m used to guys in flashy whips, I’m used to lies and talking sh*t. I’m usually tired of the sh*t I hear from him and him and him, but you then switched it up. Because you showed me love and that’s just something I ain’t used to n****s always lyin’. But you hit me wit’ that real truth, ‘member lookin’ back. Jus’ thinkin’ what the hell I’m gone do, you restored me.” – lyrics
