Up and coming Swedish artist Anna-Li has released her new R&B and pop fused single, Only If It’s You as she tackles a relationship stuck in a destructive loop.
Crossing genres continues to bring its rewards as Ann-Li’s modern mix of pop and R&B underscores her bold, soulful and compassionate tones.
Lyrically Anna-Li describes the difficult subject of a toxic relationship, as reflected in the line “I want somebody new, but only if it’s you”. It’s a complex paradox and destructive circle deserving of increased attention, which Anna -Li expresses with from-the-heart emotion.
Written by Matilda Sjöberg (Anna-Li), Gabriel Munther and Oliver Krieg, Only If It’s You was created at Dreamhill Music Academy during a session originally intended for another project.
“I was immediately drawn to it and couldn’t imagine giving it away to someone else. I hope that people who are listening to it and can relate to the lyrics, realise that they might be stuck in a destructive relationship and that they actually deserve better.” – Anna-Li
Following the style of her previous release Green Light, Anna-Li’s approach gave the song a new direction and an empowering R&B vibe.
