Billie-Eve is the third studio album by Nigerian-German singer–songwriter Ayọ. The album is named after her daughter and was recorded in New York with the cooperation of musicians like Craig Ross (guitarist of Lenny Kravitz), the rapper Saul Williams, Matthieu Chedid and Gail Ann Dorsey, bass player of David Bowie. The recording took five days like her previous two albums. Four songs, including It Hurts and Real Love, have been recorded afterwards in Paris.[1][2][3]

The song I'm Gonna Dance was released as a single and music video in February 2011.
