Pop-Soul Singer/Songwriter Liz Lokre has released the new music video for her single Buh Bye! Directed by Sean McBride and Caroline Torti, the sultry dance floor anthem was funded in part by MUCHFact, where it had its premiere on MUCH TV. The track was produced by Toronto musician Adrian X (Drake, The Weeknd, PartyNextDoor) and Jordan Reyes of BASECAMP, and has hit up playlists around the world on Spotify, New Music Friday lists, and Apple Music’s Best Of The Week – Breaking R&B while racking up over 130K plays along the way. Lokre explains that “this song is about the journey towards empowerment and how good it feels to confidently say ‘Buh Bye’ to anything that was holding me back”.
Lokre (formerly known as Liz Loughrey) hails from Toronto, Canada. Last year, she released her debut single Rise Up!, a Caribbean-flavored track which received global acclaim on blogs and playlists (read all about the inspiration for Rise Up here). A writer/performer since the age of twelve, music runs deep in her family with a grandmother and mother who were acclaimed dancers, and a father who booked live shows in Ireland. Finding inspiration from legends like Stevie Wonder, Sade and Alicia Keys, she shared a vocal coach with The Weeknd, and was recommended to Adrian X, a guitarist and music director for artists like Drake, The Weeknd, and PartyNextDoor. Drawing on their shared love of R&B, reggae, international pop and elements of the ‘Toronto sound’, together they created the new sound of the LZL collective.
