Two-time JUNO Award winning R&B singer-songwriter Savannah Ré give us a little taste from her upcoming EP with new single ‘Closure’
The brand-new single, out today (via Capitol Records) sees Savannah asserting her worth and calling out toxic Fboy energy. Produced by Savannah’s long-time collaborators GRAMMY Award-winner Boi-1da, JUNO Award winner YogiTheProducer and Kevinshideout, “Closure” blends Baile Funk percussion with dancehall and soca influences for an up-tempo track unlike anything Savannah has released before.
Savannah says: “When Yogi and I brought the production to Boi-1da and played it for him, he was like, ‘Oh yeah, this is crazy,’ “He knew exactly what it needed. He added his 1da sauce to it and it became this hybrid of a bunch of different genres – something that I haven’t really made before.”
She also adds: “I tapped into my past for this one, especially on the voicemail in the beginning (that’s actually me),” “‘Closure’ is about a relationship that has run its course, but you’re still enamoured with this person and make the last-ditch effort to hold onto something that’s already gone. Even though it’s about toxicity, I wanted it to have an uplifting energy to it with tempo and bright sounds.”
With “Closure”, Savannah continues the narrative started with the EP’s sensual lead single, “About U”, which was unveiled last month. Praised for its vulnerability and smooth, flawless vocals, “About U” set the tone for her new artistic chapter – one that is unapologetically authentic Savannah.
Following her second historic JUNO Award win for her 2021 R&B love letter “24hrs”, Savannah partnered with adidas Canada and Toronto Caribbean Carnival for their ON THE ROAD national campaign, has been named Spotify’s EQUAL Canada Ambassador for August, performed on the main stage of the esteemed Toronto International Jazz Festival, was selected by Amazon Music for The New Black billboard and was named a Future of Black Music Artist by Apple Music.
