Heart & Soul is a song composed by Yazmin Aziz with the intention of allowing listeners to focus with its acoustic lofi beats while enjoy meaningful lyrics that expresses gratefulness of having the love of your life – that one person who is your life’s heart and soul.
The inspiration of this song is drawn by Yazmin’s ex-boyfriend, Michael Pacquiao, son of Senator and Boxing Legend, Manny Pacquiao who happens to also be a musician.
In this song, Yazmin has showcased her elusive gift of music. The communicative musicality of the song is inherent in the combined play of melody, harmony and rhythm. The lyrics embody expressiveness and communicates the sincere form of feelings which will provide the listeners an all-out emotive experience. It delivers all the “feels” for everyone who’ll listen to it first time.
Yazmin Aziz commented on the song as:
“I am deeply grateful and honoured that I am able to collaboration with internationally renowned producer and artists such as JayR and Kris Lawrence, through my first English Single, Heart and Soul.
I am blessed to be able to fulfill my dreams as a musician while balancing my education. It may have taken two years since I wrote the song’s lyrics and melody, but it is worth the wait and I hope Heart & Soul will be well received by music lovers in Malaysia and around the world.
This song is perfect for dedicating it to another half especially for weddings and anniversaries”– Yazmin Aziz
