«Lately» incorporates smooth soul-inspired and R&B-infused beats. As a Ukrainian- American, Kailaya will be donating proceeds of her new single to LifeLover, a charity that provides humanitarian aid and helps the elderly community affected by the war in Ukraine.

In her debut single, Kailaya explores her adverse emotions. «I wrote ‘Lately’ in a time of my life where I needed to practice the art of letting go», said Kailaya about the personal aspect of the track. The single talks about Kailaya’s relationship with someone in her life and how she feels hurt by their actions. She wrote the song as a way to process the strong negative emotions she was feeling towards a past relationship. The track acted as a way for Kailaya to let go of the hurt and pain she was feeling, and slowly rebuild the experiences she felt so disconnected from. Produced by Aubren Elaine, the song highlights Kailaya’s silky voice, incorporates harmonisation and a jazz-inspired guitar. Influenced by Daniel Caesar, Snoh Aalegra, and Nina Simone, Kailaya creates her own soulful sound and vintage style.

Kailaya grew up heavily involved in the arts — from theatre performances, dancing, and singing, she found an outlet to express herself and grow as a person. As a toddler, Kailaya began taking dance classes and progressed rapidly in her talents throughout the years. She later discovered pole dancing as a way to embrace her sexuality and body. In school, Kailaya developed an interest in poetry, and eventually, that interest turned into songwriting. Utilising her past experiences and talents, Kailaya is creating a platform where she can share her talents and feelings with others.
