Out a few days ago via Sony Music Australia is “Shoulda Known”, the latest single from Billy Davis. The trap-infused, soul-flavoured, rhythmic pop record features VanJees and Matt McGhee. It is the Australian artist’s first track with the local arm of the major label. Written by Billy Davis, KYE and Matt McGhee, “Shoulda Known” was produced by Billy Davis, Fossabeats and Louie Lastic. It is a groovy track which carries elements of neo-soul, an area which Davis has been exploring for a moment now.
“All this music stuff happened so fast and I’m incredibly thankful and blessed for all the opportunities. But I know along the way I made some mistakes. I prioritised things I shouldn’t have and hurt people important to me. In the lead up to my album, which is a tell-tale lesson about everything I’ve learnt, ‘Shoulda Known’ is a cry from myself. It’s about acknowledging that I made mistakes and learning from them.” ~ Billy Davis says about the record
