Ever since she clinched the Idols South Africa title back in 2017, she has gone on to create some exceptional music. She has fast made a name for herself and even scored a SAMA nomination for her debut album ‘This Is Me’ which was released last year. Now, she’s back with a new sound as she starts her new era with her new track ‘No Distractions’.
The single sees the star team up with producer Dr Moruti as she explores more elements of African house music in her material.
Paxton says has found a new energy and love for music with the release of this single. “This song is really something special, because before this song, I went through a period where I wasn’t feeling very creative and productive. This song changed all of that, it kept me on my feet and kind of just made me realize why I do what I do. It was really cool to work with Dr Moruti. He has inspired me through his story and his passion for music.” Paxton continues, saying “We only had a couple of days to create something magical and we decided to do it organically. We literally started from scratch and I was in studio with him through the whole process and I think that’s one of the reasons why I feel so connected this song. When I wrote this song, I wanted it to be something people could relate to, and not your typical house love story. This sound is so fresh and authentically South African with an element of pop which is in my opinion the perfect combination. It is also different to everything else I’ve done and I’m really excited to release it!”
