“Separated” is a painful song about a necessary romantic split. Moreover, “Fun Fact” features Grammy-nominated rapper Rick Ross. Luckily, the track is both a tender request for physical intimacy and an avowal of self-confidence. The Masego-assisted single “My City” remains a standout. A lounge-leaning slice of the downtempo soul with touches of jazz. The C Gutta-produced track finds Elhae delivering smooth come-ons to the woman of his desire.
“I think the ‘Aura’ series over time has become a bit of an escape for me. Where I can let off steam and vent about things I’m going through at that current moment in my life. Honestly, much like anyone else, this is just another chapter in my life symbolizing growth and maturity.”– Elhae
