JUNO AWARD WINNER SAVANNAH RÉ DEBUTS R&B LOVE LETTER “24HRS” TODAY
“Savannah Ré’s ability to articulate her self-reflection in a relatable way is one of many ways the star stands out amongst her peers… She is gifted with an angelic tone and impressive agility.” – ThisisRNB
“[an] emerging star” – HYPEBEAST
“The city’s best-kept secret—until recently—has built a humble following who admire her singing and pen skills.” – DJ Booth
09 JUNE 2021 (TORONTO, ON) – Coming off a phenomenal year of critical acclaim, cosigns and accolades, Toronto singer-songwriter and JUNO Award winner Savannah Ré unveils her new track “24hrs” via Universal Music Canada, the country’s leading music company today. A soul-stirring serenade in which Ré honours a timeless, boundless love where “24 hours is not enough of you”, the R&B ballad is both vulnerable and relatable – signature Savannah Ré.
"This song kind of came about naturally being in this pandemic,” she says. “I’ve seen so much about relationships being strained and coming to an end because really, you’re never forced to be in a house 24/7 with your spouse or significant other. However, I haven't seen much about the positives of this. I feel like my relationship has gotten nothing but stronger, and it almost is like I wish 24 hours was longer just to have more time with my significant other. Feel good R&B is back."
Written by Savannah Ré and produced by YogiTheProducer (Kehlani, Jessie Reyez) and adamjosh, “24hrs” is an intimate collaboration with Savannah’s tender vocals caressing the melody, promising to “Love you everyday, Loving you now, I’m here to stay”.
