Rising R&B star Amaria has released her latest single over the weekend, and made sure to pair the release with an accompanying video. Midway through the lo-fi visual, we see her co-star Mick Jenkins join her with his assist, his face flashing across a large supply of TV’s stacked on top of each other. Through a fish eye lens, Amaria delivers her soft-spoken opening hook and verse:
Everyday keep on analyzing, everyday keep me satisfied and (I know)/ I can’t be wrong but you move in silence, I can’t be wrong but you keep denying/ Tell me what I want to know, don’t leave me alone, don’t runaway, my love (yeah) you got me like/
Just like nicotine you’re a fiend fiend, how you leave when I’m all you need honestly/ Got me tripping falling super speed, would you listen got me begging please/ But would you love me, would you let it go, would you love me if nobody knows/ Nowherе to go
So far in 2021, Amaria has dropped off a few singles, including cuts like “Roses” and “Think About It.” She had an active 2020, keeping herself busy throughout the ongoing pandemic by releasing plenty of songs like “Rewind” with Joe Saan, “Moon,” “Twilight,” In one of her interviews from this year, Amaria spoke about the honest feel in all her lyrics. “I want people to find something they relate to,” she said, emphasizing how relatability is a priority. “I want someone to be like, ‘I know exactly what you mean, and I’m going to sing this because I’m going through the same thing.’”
Most recently, Mick Jenkins dropped off his attention-garnering “Truffles” music video, where fans can see an eerie plotline unfold. So far this year, we’ve heard a slew of features from Jenkins.
