03 FEBRUARY 2023 (TORONTO, ON) - Today, singer-songwriter Lili-Ann De Francesco releases “idc (reprise)” featuring Preston Pablo, via Maison Barclay Canada / Universal Music Canada, the country’s leading music company.
Following the original release of “idc” in 2022, Lili-Ann called on fans to participate in an “open verse challenge” on TikTok where they could write their own verse to the song, here. Preston responded to the call to action and shared his version of a verse for the track, here. This online moment allowed the two to connect online and dream up a new version of the track which is now, “idc (reprise)”.
“This song means a lot to me,” says Lili-Ann. “And it was very hard for me to write and to put that song out there so the fact that Preston wants to be a part of it and actually liked the song and to give the song another chance and another life. Him being a part of it is something that I never thought I would be able to see come to life, especially with this song so I’m really happy.”
“Honoured to be a part of this record with Lili-Ann,” says Preston. “This song is deeply personal and being able to hop on and share her story was a pleasure. Started from a Tik Tok and here we are!”
Stay tuned for more from Lili-Ann this year.

ABOUT PRESTON PABLO:
Preston Pablo channels a fresh perspective on R&B and pop through his eloquent songwriting. Preston signed to 31 East/Universal Music Canada in 2021 as he honed what he describes as a “modern vintage” style. “It’s a blend of pop and R&B with a different twist, but I’m keeping all of the doors open,” he states. “My favourite way to write songs is with piano or guitar. It starts from the classic side with instruments and evolves from there.” After racking up nearly 20 million streams independently, he draws a big sound out of small-town roots on singles such as “Don’t Break (My Soul)”, and “Flowers Need Rain” with Banx & Ranx. Landing the #1 spot on the Shazam Chart in Canada, achieving platinum status, and reaching a Top 5 spot at Top 40 radio, “Flowers Need Rain” showcases Preston’s further emergence in popular music.
With his honest lyrics and an R&B melody, the emerging artist released, “Love You Bad”, showcasing his ability to cross genres. With much more to come in 2023, Preston is ready to launch new music kicking off with the release of “AY AY AY”. Preston has also been nominated for three JUNO Awards at the 2023 JUNO Awards.
