Roger Sanchez comments : “Katy is a force! We have been writing together for my upcoming album and her creative lyrics coupled with her beautiful voice are an instant winner! So excited for Keep it Movin’ to drop!”
Katy Alex comments, “Keep It Movin' is hands-down my favourite song I've worked on. The initial chorus hook was something I'd been sitting on for quite some time, so as soon as Roger sent me the music I knew my vocal hook had found a home. Collaborating with Roger is always great, he challenges me to develop ideas which I find helps me grow so much as a writer. Keep It Movin' is a perfect blend of ear-worm melodies and lush harmonies, decorating a high-energy house vibe, with dancing string sections and funky bass lines. I couldn't keep still whilst writing and recording on this one, to say I'm excited for this release is a serious understatement!!”
