Hunnah is back. The rising singer and songwriter has returned with “Like This,” her first new music in two years.
Co-produced by Aaron Paris (Diddy, Kali Uchis), “Like This” has Hunnah revealing her imperfections to her beloved, hoping they will appreciate her flaws and all.
“I tried to control it / I tried to make it picture perfect / I tried and it broke me down / To nothing,” she sings over a stunning production.
“Like This” is the lead single for Hunnah’s forthcoming EP, That’s All For Now, set to arrive independently Oct. 20. The project will contain five tracks.
That’s All For Now will be Hunnah’s follow-up to her 2021 EP, Unloved, inspired by her lack of experience with love.
“I just started writing about all of my anxieties and fears around what does it mean to be 27 and never been in love? Is this normal? I don’t really meet a lot of people who are on the same plane of existence as me,” Hunnah shared with Rated R&B in a 2021 interview.
She added, “I was very career-focused and just focused on other things. It didn’t bother me a lot when I was younger that I wasn’t really in relationships and didn’t have this part of my life.”
Regarding the connection she hoped fans would gain from Unloved, Hunnah told Rated R&B, “I’m always hoping to mutually feel seen — to feel seen through someone seeing themselves. I think it’s like a reciprocal situation. For me, first and foremost, I want Black women, Black fems, Black non-binary [and] Black individuals to feel seen and to feel heard through the things that I write, so that I can also feel safe through that. I am never sitting down with the intention to relate to somebody — if that makes sense. I think it’s just like I’m journaling. This feels so specific to me. But I’ve learned through releasing things that something that feels so specific to you can feel so specific to somebody else, and that’s amazing.”
