L.A. based, Chicago-born singer-songwriter Aleem has released his new R&B tinged pop single Inside Out.
The single arrives following Aleem’s support slot on Fifth Harmony’s 2016 European arena tour. The reaction led to Aleem wanting to get his music heard in the UK and the first fruits is Inside Out, a track that is rife with emotional intensity.
“Inside Out came from being in a relationship where I felt like I was the one bringing everything down, but I couldn’t control it,” says Aleem. “It’s about battling your inner demons and questioning whether you’re in the right place to give love, but also recognizing that you really do need that love.”
Aleem has been writing songs from a young age and in his late teens he worked with producer Craig Bauer.
“Craig saw my vision and took me under his wing to develop my sound, which helped me learn a lot about my craft and figure out who I was as an artist,” recalls Aleem.
Inside Out is taken from Aleem’s EP Open Letters, which was released last November, recorded with producers Ryan Stewart (Carly Rae Jepsen, Owl City) and Jon Levine (Selena Gomez, Cher Lloyd). Aleem co-wrote all of the songs with songwriters including Scott Harris (Shawn Mendes, Jessie J) and Anjulie (Lady Gaga, Nicki Minaj)
