On a production popular in the nineties, Atlanta-based singer Muva Dame sings about having her heartbroken, what it looks like when she loves someone and the betrayal of her trust. In ‘Girl Code’, Muva Dame—real name: Denasisa Anjanique Arrington—declines the love presented, because she can’t handle it. Hey, at least she knows herself enough to discard what she can’t take on. Hear the beautifully-made R&B track by the South Side Jamaica-born vocalist below.

Thank you to Jamari Jones at LVRN for sending this to us. It’s enchanting and relatable.
