Music was her first love and her oldest companion, so when WANYI was suffering from a bad breakup, music was her solace. Her debut single Meet Me Tonight delicately describes the first steps of moving on from an old relationship and the initial excitement that is ignited when you feel you can move on for the first time.
“Sometime last year I met this amazing person, and I really liked him, but I had been burned by my last relationship and had trouble letting him in” she explains. “This song was written in a moment where I was like, ‘I’m gonna give myself another chance and see where it goes’. It’s about overcoming fears and learning to open up again”. The heartfelt narrative is sourced from a period of feeling lonely and frustrated, and the lyrics certainly reflect her rising above this.
She started writing when she was ten-years-old, and it is clear to see how WANYI finds a way to channel any negativity into producing great music. The poppy upbeat track perfectly balances the candid lyrics with a catchy chorus. Finding inspiration from Troye Sivan and Ariana Grande, WANYI certainly has found a sweet spot.
This is her first release, and she has planned a selection of tracks to be released over this coming year, so keep an eye out for what’s to come.
