For the past two years, singer/songwriter Lil Halima has made a name for herself both at home in Norway and abroad through singles such as ‘Abstract’ and ‘Hold Me’, and – not to forget – her debut EP love songs for bad lovers (which got a nomination for the Nordic Music Prize)
The 20 year-old’s mix of pop, r&b and hip hop are inspired by legendary artists such as Stevie Wonder, Tupac and Aaliyah, and she’s proving to be a multitalented artist – playing piano and violin as well as creating visual art.
Certainly not one to rest on her laurels, the shooting star has released two EPs already this year – and now she’s delivering a fresh, self-directed video for one of her latest singles.
‘who do u love’, which is lifted from her EP for the bright days, is delightfully laid-back and makes us reflect on all the people we love in life. Speaking about the song, Lil Halima says: “‘who do u love’ is a song I made to remind myself that I’m blessed in such a way that, even when I’m feeling very down, I can remind myself of who I love.” The accompanying video follows this sentiment perfectly, portraying several couples in sweetly bliss-filled moments.
Lil Halima has a busy summer ahead playing several festivals, including Øya in Oslo and Roskilde in Denmark. She also recently announced a European tour, planning to visit Paris, London, Amsterdam and the Reeperbahn festival in Germany. Find out more about future dates on her Facebook page.
