Canadian-based singer/songwriter AMAAL has revealed an emotional new single titled ‘Not What I Thought’. The bass thumping ballad documents the reminiscence of love in the past tense. This first single comes with a stunning music video shot in an otherworldly location and directed by Sean Brown (Daniel Caesar, K. Roosevelt) along with AMAAL’s creative direction. The video follows the Somali-born singer in various breathtaking landscapes courtesy of Sister Nature.
The young songbird has been widely described as the epitome of female empowerment, shown through her music such as the inspiring ‘Scream’ released back in late summer 2017. AMAAL also scored recognition with single, ‘Words Revealed’ which generated 200,000 YouTube hits within its first three months of release, and has inspired cover versions by fans. ‘Mufasa’ is considered her most viral song to date with views and streams accumulated to over two million.
To add to her already impressive discography, AMAAL is currently working on an EP, which no doubt will continues her self-exploration of being woman in today’s world. Check out the video to her latest offering below:
