Wendy Godfrey Captures A Unique Moment With 'Venus'
Rising Irish singer-songwriter Wendy Godfrey creates an otherworldly feel as she describes a unique, timeless connection with her latest track "Venus."
A smooth flowing R&B track with AfroSwing elements, the track runs for a little over three minutes. Wendy Godfrey vividly describes and narrates in 'Venus' how contentment in a relationship provides a fresh perspective, a feeling that prevails when you're staying with a person you have that special connection with. With a mellow rhythm carrying Wendy's stress-free delivery, "Venus" is both alluring and empowering - set to be a modern R&B gem.
"'Venus' is about indulging in being in a whole different world when you have a special connection with someone," Wendy Godfrey says in a statement. "The lyrics portray you seeing the world in a different perspective when you're content, especially with that certain person."
She also recalls conceiving "Venus" when her producer, Solow The Astronaut, was working on a beat. "I was just freestyling the melody with a few lyrics here and there, then when the beat was done, I started writing to the beat," Godfrey adds. She said that the second part of the chorus came first, followed by the first verse, and the rest of the song started falling into place.
"Venus" is the latest track from The Hot for 2021 artist, who first made her debut in the music industry with "How Far," released July 2020. Wendy Godfrey made her follow-up with "Bad Guy" later in the same year, steadily growing her fanbase with her raw musicality, highlighted with her debut EP "Purple Emotions."
