Soul singer Maysa has just released her new single and title track of her upcoming album, a cover of Pat Benatar’s Gold-selling 80s cult classic “Love is a Battlefield”.
On May 26, 2017, Maysa will release her 13th recording as a leader and ninth for Shanachie Entertainment, Love Is A Battlefield. Maysa joins forces with producers Chris “Big Dog” Davis, The Heavyweights and Jason Miles and re-imagines a handful of R&B gems like BabyFace’s Top 10 Tevin Campbell hit, “Can We Talk,” The Isley Brothers’ 1970s slow jam “Footsteps In the Dark,” Natalie Cole’s 1975 #1 hit single “Inseparable” and Luther Vandross’ timeless “Because It’s Really Love.” Maysa also delivers surprises like Justin Bieber’s hit single featuring Big Sean “As Long As You Love Me.”
Maysa shares about the CD’s first single, “The reason why I chose ‘Love Is A Battlefield’ is that it has a lot to do with the way the world is today and all of the things we are going through as a people. As humans, we are surrounded by people who are not choosing love first. People are choosing money over love and compassion. To me, ‘Love Is A Battlefield’ is just that, a battle to allow love to reign over everything.”
