Solo artist and Grammy-nominated producer/songwriter HARLOE has released “Crush On You,” the third single from her forthcoming EP, Rivers Run Dry, out March 13 via Roc Nation and produced by Grammy-winning, multi-platinum record producer and songwriter Fred Ball (Rihanna, Eminem, Ariana Grande, Beyoncé & JAY-Z). A confessional about a relationship that has ended while cherishing the moments that make you smile and will always stay with you, “Crush On You” is accompanied by an ethereal music video entangled in vulnerability, directed by Tyler Cunningham (King Princess, Sasha Sloan) and produced by Jesy Odio (Weezer, Tegan and Sara, Fall Out Boy).
“‘Crush On You’ is meant to tell the story of what happens when love evolves and changes and you let it go. Certain people come into your life and when they leave, something will always remind you of them,” HARLOE shares. “In the video, what I wanted to do was to show the moving bodies as representation of a moving relationship where there’s push and pull and it’s never really ended. We play a lot with shadows and mirroring each other because it feels like when something is over and falls apart, they leave a mark on you and you carry them wherever you go.”
HARLOE’s debut EP, Rivers Run Dry, will feature “Crush On You” alongside HARLOE’s previously released singles “One More Chance” (PRESS HERE to watch), accentuating her glistening vocals over keys and a soulful beat, and title track “Rivers Run Dry (PRESS HERE to watch),” which is uplifted by late-night nineties R&B soundscapes and pensive pop sounds, praised by Earmilk as it “vibrates with poignancy and grace.” HARLOE also released an acoustic rework of “Rivers Run Dry,” PRESS HERE to watch.
HARLOE’s newest tracks follow her 2017 singles “More Than Ever,” a stark and confessional heartbreak, and break-out single “All In My Feelings” (PRESS HERE to stream the re-release featuring Dreezy) which immediately hit #1 on Hype Machine, Top 5 on Spotify’s U.S. and Global Viral Charts. She recently wrote and sang on Robin Schulz’ “All This Love,” which has garnered over 57 million streams, and earned a Grammy nomination for Kelly Clarkson’s Meaning of Life of which she co-wrote and co-produced several songs. Her writing and production powers marquee cuts for artists including Charli XCX, Sabrina Claudio, JoJo, ZAYN, Celine Dion, and Britney Spears.
While bravery materializes in a myriad of ways, for HARLOE it entails stepping up to a microphone and singing truth directly from the heart. Stepping out from behind her role as a songwriter and into her own artistry, HARLOE constructs a world of her own in the space between urban grit and high-fashion elegance. Born and raised in Queens, NY, she is an empowered one-woman tour de force, singing, producing and writing all of her music. A gifted vocalist, classically trained pianist, creator of indelible melodies, cut-to-the-bone songwriter, and a badass producer, HARLOE has garnered support from Nasty Gal, PopDust, Eamilk, Vibe, and Milk among others. Her debut EP, Rivers Run Dry, showcases a side of herself that she’s yet to share with the world as she walks through the chaos of life and embraces it making her a force to be reckoned with.
