Off the album 'My Love' was written for the women of Prince George's county- victims of domestic violence. Prince George's county - the wealthiest black county in the country has the highest rate of domestic violence. Wayna wrote this song in honor of them and has offered it as a free download on Soultracks this month as part of Domestic Violence Awarenes.
Speaking of 'My Love'- it is #2 on the Billboard R&B/Hip Hop singles chart and #18 on the Hot 100....This is incredible for an indie artist--- big ups Wayna....
