Snoh Aalegra quenches our thirst with another sultry banger, this one called “You.” On the ballad, the singer and songwriter deliver emotional and heartstrings-pulling vocals about the power of love.
“‘You’ is a very special song to me,” states Snoh. “It’s about the unconditional love you have for that person you can’t live without. No matter how much pain they put you through, you’re always right back in their arms.”
‘You’ arrives after the previously released gem, “I Want You Around” — Both songs follow Snoh’s debut album, FEELS, which dropped in 2017.
Born in Sweden to Persian parents, and now based in LA, Aalegra has been wowing music fans with her cinematic soul. The ultimate femme fatale, she draws in listeners with a smoky voice wrapped around sumptuous production. While her music delves into melancholy, it embodies a soulful sound reminiscent of Michael Jackson, Nina Simone, and Lauryn Hill yet finds its own power and connectivity through Aalegra’s signature croon.
It’s no wonder Aalegra is the protégé of luminary hip-hop producer No I.D., who’s produced hit singles for the likes of Kanye, Common and Jay Z. Aalegra captured the imagination of icon and legend Prince who mentored her for 3 years before his untimely passing in 2016. Her undeniable talent has also allowed her to collaborate with music’s most influential voices and producers such as Drake, Vince Staples, Boi-1da, Common, John Mayer, RZA, Killer Mike, and more.
