Having made the crowds dance all summer long with tracks like “California Love” and “Blame” but AMERY is now taking it slow with his latest single “You Know“.
Produced by James Lowland, the R&B track creates a warm and intimate atmosphere preparing the ground for the 22-year-old Belgian artist to fully express and embrace his vulnerability. AMERY evokes the vicious circle resulting from the fear of letting yourself be seen and be loved, with every rejection adding up to the emotional baggage for the next relationship.
“I’ve been in a situation where I was too confident that I could pursue a relationship with someone. We spent a lot of time together and quickly got to know each other profoundly so I personally thought we could become an item. And when I finally mustered up my courage to get out of the friend zone, I hit a wall.”
“I regret that the person in front of me wasn’t ready to let their guard down to accept this romantic and committed 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.”
