You is R&B/Soul artist Hamzaa’s second solo single and it is a follow-up to her debut single Stranded Love which dropped in June this year. We first heard this 19-year-old Londoner when she featured on Odunsi’s Mine earlier this year and we had to listen.
You is a self-written song by Hamzaa, produced by Jacob Attwooll. The song is a completely acoustic (and this writer is a sucker for a good acoustic); an ode to lost love. With Hamzaa’s beautiful husky vocals accompanied by melodies from the piano and guitar, You is sad in a way that soothes you. The video sees the artist through snippets of her creative process in writing and recording the song with flashbacks of the relationship she couldn’t save and the sadness that comes after such a loss.
With Stranded Love getting over 350k streams across Spotify and Apple Music, and airplay on BBC1 Xtra and Julie Adenuga’s Beats 1 show, and with such an amazing follow-up, we really are excited to see what more Hamzaa has for the world.
