Lavaud [@iamlavaud pronounced {La-vo}] is a rising singer-songwriter from Hackney, East London with roots in Mauritius. Not too long ago, she made a stunning comeback with her brand-new single, “Roll on Me,” featuring Tiwa Savage, Patoranking, Reekado Banks, and KANIS via Saint & Citizen Music. The all-star ensemble of very special guests has shaped the landscape of African music as we know it today.

“When artists come together like this, something magical happens. This song is so special and I’m loving everybody’s energy.” – Tiwa Savage stated

Tapping into afro-dancehall rhythms, “Roll on Me” is a feel-good single featuring superstar producers Kel-P (Burna Boy, Wizkid, Rema) and Tramatik. Rooted in a simmering, effortlessly smooth groove that begins with an entrancing bass guitar melody taking center stage, “Roll on Me” instantly draws listeners into its hypnotic embrace.

The rich and warm nature of the production provides the perfect canvas for Lavaud to showcase her typically stunning vocals as she continues to assert herself and raise the bar within the UK R&B scene while bringing together some of the biggest and best artists in the Afrobeats and Latin scenes for an infectious creation that skillfully spans continents with irresistible ease.

“We’re coming to give you a soundtrack of the season. Big love to everyone involved, this is one of those undeniable moments in music culture.” –Reekado Banks commented

“Roll On Me” follows the London-based Lavaud’s previous debut EP, which contains the hit singles “King Vaud” and “Oh My,” also featuring Reekado Banks. The body of work sees Lavaud mixing her cultural context as a British-Mauritian empowered artist, inspired by the world of R&B and African music, all while maintaining a dedicated ethos to unfiltered, self-expression.

“I’m so excited to be working with such iconic and generational talent. I love how all our cultures blend to create something timeless, that’s the beauty of music.” – Lavaud stated

Lavaud began her musical journey guided by her father, who exposed her to genres like zouk and R&B. Lavaud cites the likes of Celine Dion, Mariah Carey, Aretha Franklin, and Beyoncé as inspirations for her sound. She received recognition from the MOBO Awards ‘Next Up’ for the single “Pictures” before scoring a US ‘Top 20’ urban radio hit with “Deep” and “In This Room,” an acoustic single that she wrote, produced, and recorded from her bedroom during lockdown that amassed over 500K streams and was playlisted by YouTube Music, Apple Music, and Tidal amongst others. Since then, Lavaud has solidified her status as an artist to watch with her debut EP, “King Vaud,” which received critical acclaim, scoring over 3 million global streams across all platforms.
