Reina Khoury has revealed ‘Exist With You’, her newest enchanting, genre-hybrid single featuring smooth, sensual melodies and hypnotic, layered harmonies. Jordan-based but heavily influenced by the sounds of Western culture, Reina Khoury floats effortlessly between her two identities, often making good use of her bilinguality by singing in both English and Arabic, as she impressively demonstrates in ‘Exist With You’.
Inspired by the intense desire and passion associated with new love, ‘Exist With You’ both in sound and vision, perfectly captures the happiness and inner contentment that comes with loving and being loved back. A glorious ode to her now husband, Reina’s visual treatment for the single sees her joyfully frolic across stunning landscapes in a vlogger-style music video that really reflects the carefree and fun-loving nature of this rising Arabian artist.
Speaking on the influences behind ‘Exist With You’, Reina explains:
“I first wrote the main sentence “I wanna forget the world for a while and just exist with you” while on the piano waiting for my then boyfriend, now husband, to arrive in London to visit me as I was doing my Masters. This feeling of just tuning out the whole world, with the noise and distractions that come along, and just enjoy every second we had together was such a strong feeling that made me want to cherish that moment, through a song. While creating it, my producer and I imagined a dreamy, euphoric feel for the song, and came up with melodies that were expressive of the fun times we ended up living in the studio with that idea in mind. It is a positive message that keeps me going back to the feeling of calmness and happiness whenever I feel overwhelmed. Reminds me to tune negativity out, focus on the good, and just be.”
Having received support from Anghami playlists, placement on Arab X Spotify Playlist and radio plays on local radio stations in Jordan, the pop artist certainly has the world at her feet. Listen to ‘Exist With You’ now.
