    (July 8, 2022) Some tunes just have staying power, and that is the case with Lady Coco’s “Stay In Your Lane.” Co-written and produced by the legendary writer and producer Preston Glass, the tune was the title track on her 2016 EP. “Stay In Your Lane” did well when it was originally released.

    However, the tune had a rebirth over the last two years, thanks to the pandemic. Lady Coco reintroduced the cut to fans while doing Zoom concerts and, once again, the people responded positively. So, Lady Coco decided to make “Stay In Your Lane” a bonus track on her new album, “Beside Myself,” which dropped in February.

    The tune sports a lush, brassy arrangement and a bouncy, funky bass line that Lady Coco said puts her in the mind of Sly & the Family Stone’s “If You Want Me To Stay” She even does a vocal homage to Sly’s 1973 hit. To me, that bass line has a Sergio Mendez “The Real Thing” kind of vibe, but either way, I’m good.

    Thematically, stay in your lane finds Lady Coco using her honeycomb vocals to sweetly call out someone who just can’t seem to mind their own business. Check out Lady Coco’s “Stay In Your Lane” here.
