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).
