"When a lot of people see me, they think that I have it all figured out when it's the opposite. Sometimes I want to give it all up. It's a big mess.
The songs on Paul Payne's new EP are pretty emotional, written in a happy and dark state of his life. Love Junkies addresses the issues people face in relationships.
According to his comprehensive account, Paul said: "I have broken a couple of hearts, something I am not proud of, and Karma caught up with me. I decided to share all these experiences on my EP. Love Junkies is a book written by Christy Johnson, and it inspired the EP".
'Smile', the first track off the EP was produced/mixed & mastered in Uganda by Fusa (of Amazing Beats), the man behind the mixing/mastering of War, the EP released before this one. It's a romantic song full of roses & sweet soothing sounds with vocals from Pro Gain, a gifted/talented recording artist from Malawi making the song exceptional and full of love.
At some point in my life, I lost it all, scars I carry till date. I get traumatized when I get reminded of the bad things in my past, especially when I have an encounter with the people whose hearts I've broken.
I dive deep into this issue on 'Good Times', the second track on the EP, with production from EmmzTouch, a very gifted/talented Zambian music producer. In this song, I put my foot in all the women whose hearts I have broken, alas, I felt the toxicity of my old affairs, the memories that still hunt me. I know a lot of people are going to relate with this one cause there's a whole lot of confusing relationships out there because people ignore all the red flags.
We're all suckers for love, a lot of people don't want to be alone. That's why so many people jump from one bad relationship to another. Looks can be deceptive when we meet new people; our perception blinds us to the fact that they also have some baggage.
