Listen to “Just Doing Me” here
Singer and songwriter Carli J Myers is back with another banger after keeping South African fans hooked on every word of hits like ‘Just Saying’ with Mathew Gold and ‘Crazy’.
Her latest single is titled ‘Just Doing Me’ – and it is the anthem we all need after a year like 2020.
Catchy and perfect to dance along to in front of the mirror or out on the town, this song is filled to the brim with philosophies of self-efficacy and independence. As a qualified and practicing Industrial Psychologist, Carli has written lyrics for it which are also in line with concepts like mindfulness.
She explains the meaning behind the song: “It’s about catching the adventures of life and falling into those colourful moments which only really come around once.”
Carli has spent a significant amount of time in the USA and Canada, working alongside producers who have worked with Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez and Fallout Boy, to name a few. The result? The South African radio-waves love her upbeat and effervescent sound.
Carli has released hit after hit with four of her singles reaching #1 on the airwaves, starting early with her debut single ‘Clutch’. Her latest three releases have all relentlessly topped the charts, too – with ‘Just Saying’, written in collaboration with Robbie Rosen of American Idols fame, remaining at the top spot for consecutive weeks.
Her music has had over 6 000 spins across 30 South African radio stations, reaching an audience of over 400 million. Digitally, Carli’s songs have been streamed over 100 000 times across Spotify, Apple Music and Shazam.
‘Just Doing Me’ was written while Carli was in Toronto for the annual ‘Canadian Music Week’ conference, where she represented South Africa and worked with a number of exceptional musicians and songwriters – including Maia Davies and Bobby Morales.
“I was so taken by how music brings different people and cultures together,” says Carli. “I found my attention split between my hometown of Joburg and the inspiration right in front of me there – and that’s how we wrote ‘Just Doing Me’. It captures each emotion I felt and every moment I experienced, how you can be excited about life while still being grounded in your own reality.”
‘Just Doing Me’ is available on all major digital music platforms.
