We say

Drenched in longing and desire, Need You is the soothing debut single from rising Canadian R&B artist Emanuel. Upon its release back in April, the piano-driven ballad with lush, sentimental strings and smooth lyricism made an immediate impact with tastemakers across the globe. He was quickly named Apple Music’s New Artist of the Week, one of Amazon Music’s Artists to Watch, a Soundcloud Featured Artist and a Spotify “On the Radar” Artist. Since then it has clocked up over 1.6m Spotify streams and over 500k views for the collaborative video curated by Idris Elba. Last Friday (19 June), the talented Canadian followed up on his debut offering with his Session 1: Disillusion EP - a collection of tracks rich in emotion and soulful grooves. With more support from the likes of Apple Music (Breaking R&B, New Music Daily) and Spotify (NMF, R&B Right Now) for EP track Addiction, Emanuel clearly shows he is a fast-rising talent delivering poignant and gorgeous music.
