Ali Gatie is back with another ballad to tug at your heartstrings. The Canadian singer returned on Friday (Oct. 18) with another track from his eagerly awaited debut album, the love lament “Say to You.”
Gatie pines for a former lover while crooning about still missing his ex, but knowing he can’t go back to her because he doesn’t believe her love is real. “I can’t even lie, want you by my side/ Yeah, you left me empty and it’s something I can’t hide/ Everybody knows, they say that it shows/ They know that I miss you so I wonder how you don’t,” he sings on the mid-tempo ballad.
The “It’s You” artist also released a stripped-back visual to his latest single, which finds Gatie driving a blue convertible by himself down the lonely desert road with nobody else in sight as the song’s lyrics scroll on his windshield.
“I want to be like the perfect mixture of Ed Sheeran and J. Cole,” Gatie previously told Billboard of his career aspirations. “Somewhere right in the middle, where I’m not a pop star, but I’m not exactly a hip-hop artist.”
