From Oscar And The Wolf to Stromae, to Dimitri Vegas and Like Mike… Do you know what all these great names in music have in common? Right, they’re 100% made in Belgium. Nowadays this tiny country has much more to offer than French (they’re really Belgian though) fries, waffles and chocolate. As a proud inhabitant of the heart of Europe ánd music lover, I think it’s really important to be aware of talent in your own region.
A while ago I discovered AMERY: 21 years old and ready to conquer the music industry. I absolutely loved his first single called So Good (literally só good). He’s got a very distinctive voice which you just immediately recognize. But most of all, he just got soul. Giving off some real Michael Jackson vibes, but with a real ‘feel good’ vibe. It just made me want to get up and dance.
Today he’s back with a new tune, and I had a sneaky listen before the release. I just couldn’t wait to share my thoughts on it. With I Need Lovin’ AMERY is continuing everything he started with So Good: soul and vibes. It’s a really chill and laid-back song, but at the same time it makes you want to get up from behind your desk at work and just clap and dance along. And even though there’s not so much of a summer in Belgium right now, AMERY succeeds in bringing some sunshine into my day.
I Need Lovin’ is out now, so give it a listen, and let me know what you think! Also, check out AMERY’s Instagram: he posts some really nice covers on there.
