Set against stunning Icelandic backdrops, Toronto singer/songwriter Amaal recently dropped the video for her new single, “Not What I Thought.” Directed by Sean Brown, the video quickly amassed thousands of views in its’ first week, and received deserving kudos from R&B artist Kehlani.
But even without credit from peers and industry alike, it’s easy to tell that Amaal has something effortless and special that radiates through her being. She breathes life into each word, singing, “You don’t know nothing ’bout me, I don’t know nothing ’boutchu, now/ I thought it would never be us, Another flame into dust, now.“
It’s been awhile since the songstress has released new music, but “Not What I Thought” has us truly excited for what is still yet to come. Stream the video below, and follow Amaal on Twitter.
