Melbourne-based dance-pop artist Kevin Silvester has returned with his heart-wrenching new single, “Be The One” today. The fourth single from his upcoming debut album, Sleepwalker finds him grappling with the realization of his partner’s infidelity. A collaboration with fellow Melbourne-based Pop and R&B singer/songwriter JVCQUI, the song is accompanied by a laceratingly emotional music video that tells the story of a toxic relationship through dramatic neon-metropolitan visuals. Watch it now below.
Silvester’s enchanting melodies pair perfectly with the ethereal vocal performance by JVCQUI, which displays a sense of longing and heartache. The back and forth between the two artists paints the picture of a couple fighting, leaving listeners with empathy for JVCQUI as she pleads for validation.
In July 2021, the song was born from a conversation between the two: they became friends after chatting about kinks at a local RSL. Written right before Melbourne’s lockdown, the finishing touches were completed over a phone call. Listeners are treated to an explosive chorus of gang vocals by the pair imitating signature celebrity voices – Britney Spears, Olivia Rodrigo and Momo from TWICE.
