AMAAL‘s  latest single, ‘Coming and Going’ is a silky, lustrous number, reflecting the experience of being in love can sometimes have equal parts of highs and lows and the recognition that the bad often doesn’t negate the good.

‘Coming and Going’ is the second single off the rising Somali-Canadian R&B artist’s upcoming debut EP, set to be released this summer and is the follow-up to the groundbreaking ‘Not What I Thought, which earned her the Apple Canada’s best new artist of the week title in February.’ The visuals for ‘Not What I Thought,’ directed by creative Sean Brown (best known for his work with Daniel Caesar), is quickly approaching one million views.

New Track: Without You – GNGR

​‘Without You’ is the captivating debut single from exciting new British singer and songwriter GNGR. Produced by Sampl, who has worked with the likes of Skepta, Ms Banks and Shystie, the slow-building atmospheric R&B offering is just a teaser of what you can expect from GNGR in 2018, and the first taste of her forthcoming debut project, which will be released at the end of the year.

For fans on H.E.R, Sabrina Claudio and Daniel Caesar, GNGR has been honing and perfecting her own unique slant on today’s alternative R&B sound, driven by raw and honest lyrics, and her amazing voice, which oozes the most soulful tones, while taking influences from R&B stalwarts such as Destiny’s Child, India Arie, Anthony Hamilton and Frank Ocean, who have all helped shaped her music.

Our first flavour of this is the exquisite ‘Without You’, which sees GNGR yearning for a love that is doomed from the start, but she just can’t seem to let go. Backed by moody keyboard arrangements, minimalist cymbals, and lush grand piano undertones, GNGR holds the record together beautifully, with an enchanting vocal performance, and confessional lyrics, that we can all relate to…
