Belgian rising-star R&B artist AMERY shares his latest single, the intimate & vulnerable ‘You Know’
Born to Rwandan parents, Belgian artist AMERY fell in love with music as a child while discovering Michael Jackson’s ‘Billie Jean’ video on MTV. Ever since then, AMERY has been going from strength to strength in his music career. The rising star has just recently released a brand new single, titled ‘You Know’, a piece that deals with the fear of letting yourself be seen and be loved.
Upon leaving school, AMERY decided to focus exclusively on music with the full support of his mom who witnessed his dedication throughout the years. Determined to find a home for his talent, he actively reached out to recording studios and production companies before crossing paths with the record label Weird !s Good, where he got a chance to develop as an artist surrounded by a passionate and understanding team. The connection with producer James Lowland was immediate. Together, they worked on a series of pop gems infused with some urban and exotic flavours that AMERY started to release in March 2017. Gathering more than 2 millions of streams in total on Spotify, his first singles received many accolades from national radios but also from Sir Elton John, Beats1 and worldwide publications such as ELLE France, PopCrush, Popjustice and OkayAfrica.
Fast forward to 2018, the 22-year-old singer kicked off the year being named an Artist to Watch both by Belgian and British press. The release of his single ‘Blame’ and a series of concerts led him to perform in the renowned venue Ancienne Belgique while he surfed on a nostalgic wave for the summer with the dreamy ‘California Love’.
Produced by James Lowland, ‘You Know’ draws on AMERY‘s personal experiences and he explains that, “I regret that the person in front of me wasn’t ready to let their guard down to accept a romantic and committed kind of love. ‘You Know’ acknowledges the idea that true love calls for vulnerability but also that, paradoxically, being rejected just magnifies a bit more your fear of opening up.”
