Savannah Ré Releases Lead Single “About U” From New EP “No Weapons”

Savannah Ré first came into the spotlight back in 2020, following the release of her debut EP – Opia. The EP featured popular tracks: “Where You Are”, “Solid”, and the title track “Opia”. The EP was critically-lauded and earned Savannah shout-outs from the likes of SZA and Timbaland.

In 2021, Savannah received: two Prism Prize nominations, a Polaris Music Prize nomination, and a Slaight Music Emerging Songwriter nomination. However, it would be at the JUNO Awards where Savannah would make history. In 2021, she became the first-ever artist to receive the Traditional R&B/Soul Recording of the Year award.

Co-written with close collaborator Marcus Semaj, and produced by YogiTheProducer and Jack Rochon, “About U” is a warm, smooth track about the difficulties of relationships. The song stays true to Savannah’s authentic lyricism as she sings: “Can’t play this game forever / Let’s get this shit together / You know I make you better / But you make it hard”.

The music video for “About U” also capitalises on another of Savannah’s greatest strengths – as she always conceptualises each visual representation of her music. Co-directed by Savannah Ré and Alex P. Smith, the visuals for “About U” is stunning, captivating viewers with its story.

So far 2022 has been a good year for Savannah Ré – having received a second JUNO Award for her 2021 single – “24hrs”. She also released two other singles this year – “Fiji” and “Last One” featuring fellow Canadian artist Dylan Sinclair.
