JUNO Award winner, and three-time nominee, Savannah Ré has released her newest single “Fiji” this week. Savannah is one of the first Canadian artists to be selected for the global #YouTubeBlack Voices Music Class of 2022. Additionally, she has become one of R&B’s brightest new voices. When making music, she does so with an unyielding intention: to craft songs that forfeit polished stories for an authentic one.
In “Fiji” you can hear Savannah Ré ‘s voice shine. Ré reaffirms her talent on this new track, singing over an R&B trap beat. She sings about a clingy lover who she enjoys entertaining. “Fiji,” 2.26 in length, is one of Savannah’s hottest releases. In the chorus she sings, “Needy/On the phone every-time you leave me/Know you thinking bout it that’s your FIJI/Know it’s second nature when you see me, see me.” Because of the visualizer, we get to see her emotions throughout the track. Given that, the visualizer is a perfect look into the message she is portraying.
