R&B duo The Amours (Jakiya Ayanna and Shaina Aisha) have returned with their new single “Don’t Deserve” via Hardcover.
The Camper-produced tune hears the sisters reaffirming their self-worth, as they sing about leaving an unfaithful lover.
“You been faking on me / I don’t, I don’t, I don’t deserve it,” they sing in the chorus.
“Don’t Deserve” marks a new era for The Amours. It’s the lead single from the sister duo’s upcoming EP, which will follow 2019’s Mon Amour.

Released on April 26, 2019, via Morton Records, Mon Amour included their debut single “All the Time.” The title track, which only runs 45 seconds, is the EP’s second-most streamed song on Spotify with 91,000 to date.
The Amours shared the inspiration behind “All the Time” in a 2019 interview with Okayplayer.
“When creating ‘All the Time,’ we wanted to make sure that we stayed true to the Essence of real, feel-good R&B music. From the lyrics to the melody to easing into our signature harmonic arrangements,” said Jakiya.
Shaina added, “There are two things we want to be known for: our harmony and our blend. Before adding harmony to ‘All the Time,’ we focused on blending and sounding like one voice. We believe that blending is one of the most important things when being in a group.”
The Amours supported Mon Amour as a supporting act on PJ Morton’s Keys and a Mic Acoutic Tour.
