You Need to Hear Amaal's 'Not What I Thought'

A gem of a release by this rising artist from the white pearl of the Indian Ocean.

Amaal is a Somali-Canadian singer whose latest offering, "Not What I Thought," has us entranced.

In her new single, the Toronto-based songwriter pairs hazy R&B soundscapes with melancholic lyrics about a relationship that's come to an end.

It's a captivating song that's only improved by its Sean Brown-directed music video, which follows Amaal to the foggy beaches, waterfalls and green landscapes of Iceland.

Both the track and video are a gem of a release by this rising artist from the white pearl of the Indian Ocean, as her bio describes (as Mogadishu was known prior to the civil war).

Check out the music video for "Not What I Thought" below. You can stream & purchase the song here.
