We can also anticipate an EP from Amaal soon. "I feel like it's about myself. With a lot of my music, the narrative centers around 'people,'" she says in an interview with Earmilk. "Being a refugee, being an immigrant, being raised in an area that was reflective of that [experience]…I feel like this is just a little more honest [about] my heartbreaks and things I've been through."

Revisit her stunning visual for "Not What I Thought' here.
