Singer-songwriter WANYI invites us back into her glistening pop realm with the bittersweet new single "Loved You Once".
On “Loved You Once”, WANYI’s shimmering vocals intertwine perfectly against a nostalgic yet wholly modern R&B melody. It’s the kind of song you can get lost in as you daydream the perfect music video to accompany the music.
The new single sees WANYI experiment with a slightly different tone from her previous glossy pop numbers. Nevertheless, WANYI continues to write from the heart, and “Loved You Once” is another example of her smooth ability to convey emotion into music.
