Emilia Ali releases a “Beautiful” new track
Produced by Bendik Møller and Noah Longworth McGuire, “Beautiful” packs a potent punch, sporting moody, slick pop production while Emilia’s sultry vocals sink in. “Glad my mistakes could bring her to you. You seem so happy … fucking fastastic,” she sings. “Why must she be beautiful?” A cry to the universe of sorts, the dark pop anthem hits a powerfully relatable chord.
“Beautiful is about a boy whom I want to be happy,” Emilia says when detailing the song’s inspiration. “But coming to terms with the fact that I wasn’t the person who could make him happy is always going to hurt.” The tension between the vulnerability and the frustration reverberates through every inch of the record. An explosive combination, “Beautiful” feels poised to be fall’s next viral chill pop runaway.
Fresh off graduation from Berklee College of Music, Emilia Ali made waves in fall 2016 with her vocal performance on VALNTN’s international hit, “Can’t Let Go.” To date, the track has garnered more than 20 million global streams and more than 100,000 downloads. Shortly after the release of “Can’t Let You Go,” Ali put out her EP Dreamland, which debuted at #24 on the iTunes Pop Chart and shot up the Spotify Viral Charts in multiple countries. The EP was then re-released via Listen For Pleasure/Capitol Records featuring the following three new songs: “Thick Thighs,” “u don’t like me when i’m high,” and “Bored” (feat. NALIYA). More recently, Ali’s vocals and writing have also been heard on Dwilly’s 2018 single “ADD,” accumulating more than 10 million global streams. She performed at the 2018 Lollapalooza and 2019 SXSW festivals. Ali looks forward to the release of her next single “Beautiful,” and to performing around the east coast this year.
