London-based artist IMAN has already been making huge waves across the world by virtue of her emotive and prolific songwriting for major international acts, which went on to achieve certified multi-platinum status. Now stepping into the spotlight, IMAN is establishing herself as multi talented artist in her own right. Inspired by a wide array of influences from genres such as R&B, Soul and Electro Pop, IMAN shines once again with summer anthem GET THE FEELING. Listen here
Recent release WISHING hit a whole host of milestones including peaking at #3 in The Urban Music Week Club Charts and #10 in the Pop Commercial Music Week Club charts, and hitting 12 major Spotify playlists including 3 Topsify lists orchestrated by Warner Music. It also reached the playlists of stores H&M and leading female retailer MISSGUIDED across 2,500 sites in the UK and across Europe also receiving support from KISS FRESH, Rinse FM, Nike in the UK and Germany and PUMA. Her effortless skill displayed on WISHING also lead to a nomination for ‘Best Unsigned Song’ at the Best of British Music Awards.
As the quote below outlines, GET THE FEELING is a touching tribute to one of IMAN’s biggest influences and signifies the moment in which she understood what she was truly capable of. The lyrics paint an intimate picture of her path into songwriting and the importance of her creative ability at the core of her personality. The instrumental weaves timeless elements of Pop and Club music with smooth elements from contemporary R&B to bring in various layers of energy – all working in perfect synergy for IMAN to spin her narrative with syrupy sweet tones. Somi Jones will also be adding his touch with the forthcoming remix.
On the motivation behind the track, IMAN shares “I wrote ‘Get The Feeling’ about a special person that got me to finally recognise my talent. She was a teacher at my music college and at the time I had very little belief in myself. One time in a lesson she randomly got me to stand up and basically went on to let everyone know how much she rated my songwriting and voice. That moment stuck with me as up until then I thought I was pretty wack, getting anyone to work with me was like getting blood from a stone and it was affecting my confidence. She was someone passionate and genuine and I looked up to her. When she did that I knew she meant it and that was the turning point for me. I decided I was going to start believing in myself. That same year she passed away and of course I still remember her and the impact she made on me.”
