There's an endless amount of talent coming out of Toronto. One of the latest artists to catch our attention is singer-songwriter Savannah Ré. The two-time JUNO Award winner has been on her grind for years, but she's been especially prolific this year as she gets closer to the release of her forthcoming EP No Weapon. After dropping the project's lead single, the slow jam “About U,” in July, she follows it up and switches it up with “Closure.”
Co-written by Savannah and produced by Boi-1da, YogiTheProducer and Kevinshideout, the track continues the narrative begun in "About U" but changes the tempo. Savannah and her production team bring some unique flavor to “Closure,” incorporating elements of Baile Funk, dancehall and soca into the uptempo cut. A constant guitar riff and the song's pulsating beat compliment her smooth, laid-back vocals.
Savannah sets the tone early about how it’s going down when we hear her leaving a voicemail for her dude. She's big mad when she promises to pull up on him if he doesn’t return her calls.
As we listen to the song, it becomes obvious that this entanglement isn't rooted in love and is only hanging on by sex. Savannah sings, "End of the night, we both know what it is / And it’s proven, you gon’ want a sip, baby / Touch down like Brady / Even when I drive you crazy / You know you need this daily." She knows what this situationship is – and what it ain't – and moves accordingly.
“'Closure' is about a relationship that has run its course, but you’re still enamored with this person and make the last-ditch effort to hold onto something that’s already gone," Savannah stated via press release, giving some insight into the song. "Even though it’s about toxicity, I wanted to have an uplifting energy to it with tempo and bright sounds.”
Savannah Ré's "Closure" has us wide open and eager to hear what else she's bringing to the musical table on her next project. We'll hear soon enough when No Weapons drops sometime this fall on Capitol Records. Stay tuned for a release date, but for right now, give "Closure" a spin below.
