Kameron Corvet is back on the scene with his first release since his impressive album Kathy’s Basement, released in late 2020. The new single, entitled “Who Hurt Who,” is an ode to the break-up songs of old, written, arranged and produced by the Atlanta-based singer/songwriter/musician.
“Who Hurt You” would feel right at home on a 1970s playlist, and that is certainly meant as a compliment. This song pays homage to that back in the day sound, especially with Kameron’s distinctive falsetto, the simple but tight bassline, Fender Rhodes, a timely rhythm guitar and the brilliantly arranged horns.
In this song, Corvet intends to give a voice to the men out there who are sometimes blamed for relationships that do not work out. "Many times when a relationship ends, the explanation behind the breakup comes from the woman. 'Who Hurt Who' asks the question, who really hurt who?" Kameron shared via press release. "There is a perception that men are not affected at all when a relationship falls apart. Hopefully, the song helps to open up conversations about the importance [of] hearing both sides before picking one.”
Like many songwriters, Kameron pulled from his firsthand experiences as well as those of others when writing "Who Hurt Who." His lyrics resonate when he sings on the first verse, "You were falling for me big time / You were telling me to give you all of it / You wanted love redefined / Somewhere, somewhere, somewhere along the way / You wanted out when I asked you to stay."
He drives home the point on the bridge that there is enough blame to go around when it comes to a failed relationship. "I've done some good, you've done some bad / We'll never get back what we had, don't take it back," he croons, and once that's accepted, it makes it easier to move on.
For those who are into album cover art, Kameron collaborated with illustrator Oliver Banks to create the "Who Hurt Who" single art. The symbolic illustration depicts Corvet as a 17th century Royal dressed in Krimson and Kreme to pay homage to his membership in Kappa Alpha Psi fraternity. The purple heart on his chest is a tribute to his favorite artist Prince and also represents those hurt in the battle that is love.
