You may remember British singer MNEK from Zara Larsson’s smash hit Never Forget You which was released earlier this year or from his single The Rhythm. However, there is so much more to MNEK than meets the eye. He has written and produced songs for artists such as Beyoncé, Madonna, Kylie Minogue, Diplo, Zara Larsson, Lianne La Havas, Rudimental, Naughty Boy, Little Mix, JoJo, Clean Bandit and many more. Now, he’s stepping into the limelight as he drops the epic lead single off his highly-anticipated debut album.
At Night (I Think About You) is something so different and unique that puts MNEK in a class of his own. The track blends trap, EDM and pop sounds into something so refreshing. The production is really impressive. The song is constructed so differently in different parts but it comes together like a puzzle and the result is perfect. Lyrically, the song is really impressive as well and has a bit more substance than the many generic, simple pop songs on radio at the moment. MNEK puts on an incredible and powerful vocal performance and it’s clear that he will be a force to be reckoned with in the coming years.
Much like his music, the video to the song is artistic and busy and although simple, it’s the perfect companion to the song. “‘At Night’ is a song about insomnia so I wanted that captured in the video,” he said. “For me, it was to make sure a mix of people from different walks of life were showcased going through the different stages of it. The restlessness, the frustration – the overthinking too! Patrick Killingbeck directed it and he and his team really brought it on home. Hope you enjoy!”
