We just found the cure for this drab Wednesday, in the smooth, lull you to Thursday mood lifter ‘Forever’
Toronto’s very own singer, songwriter, and multi-talented artist, Charlotte Day Wilson, is back in the spotlight with her brand-new single ‘Forever,’ a collaboration with the exceptional R&B sensation Snoh Aalegra.
Drawing a subtle thread from the classic tune ‘Baby, Now That I Found You’ by The Foundations, ‘Forever’ lets Wilson’s velvety vocals glide over a melancholic beat and ethereal piano. The result is a meditative piece that captures the feeling of a candle’s last flicker.
The track not only showcases her gift for poignant songwriting but also her deft touch in layered production, cementing her position as a sought-after artist known for her collaborations.
This single follows Wilson’s well-received debut album from 2021, ALPHA, and marks her first release under the XL Recordings / Remote Control label. With ALPHA, Wilson openly explored her queerness for the first time, becoming a poignant voice in the quiet storm-inspired musical landscape. Drawing inspiration from folk, gospel, and R&B, her unique sound resonates with fans seeking introspection and depth in their musical experiences.
In ‘Forever,’ Wilson and Aalegra unite their voices to express the longing for a love that seems just out of reach. It’s emotional, its moody, and its sublimely heartfelt. Wilson’s ability to connect emotionally with listeners, is a skill that has earned them nominations for prestigious awards like Juno, Polaris, and Libera. No surprises, tbh, Wilson’s songwriting/production abilities are perfection.
Wilson’s impact extends beyond her solo work. Collaborating with the likes of Babyface, Syd, King Princess, Amaarae, and Meshell Ndegeocello, she’s proven her versatility across genres. Her track ‘Mountains’ even found its way into Drake’s chart-topping hit ‘Fair Trade’ featuring Travis Scott, showcasing her far-reaching influence.
‘Forever’ is yet another chapter in Charlotte Day Wilson’s musical journey, and we have never been more here for it.
Out now via XL Recordings / Remote Control, this release brings together two of the most remarkable voices in the modern music landscape.
