Rising dance/pop recording artist Samira channels her inner feisty this week with the release of her brand new single “That’s Not What My Friends Say” – an upbeat, sassy summer-ready banger that sees the singer try to navigate her way through the crazy world of dating!
Co-written by Samira and British singer/songwriter Evalina, along with DJ and producer Welshy (Kygo, The Chainsmokers), the super catchy track serves as the follow up previous single release “Like This, Like That” which received praise from the likes of CLASH, MTV UK and The Official Charts, and was also featured on the last season of Love Island.
Of her latest offering, the “I Love Your Smile” singer says: “Like it is for most girls my age, dating is… interesting! And so I wanted to write a semi-autobiographical girl power anthem that was spicy and full of personality, that celebrated friendship and the role your friends often take in spotting the red flags before you do!”
“I wrote this with the immensely talented UK-House powerhouse that is Welshy, alongside singer/songwriter Evalina, and it takes my love of no-nonsense late 90s female R&B lyricism and puts a very 2023 spin on it! It’s very much the fun, sassy little sister to ‘Like This, Like That’, and hopefully shows another facet to who I am as an artist.”
