Jiaani Ride Alicia Keys Sample In New “Somebody Say” Video

Jiaani’s debut album 10,000 Hours was released exactly one year ago this week, and has already amassed over one million streams. That’s no easy feat for anyone, let alone a newcomer. For the Persian-American emcee repping North Carolina, it was only motivation for more in the months to come. After rounding out 2019 with “Say Wasup” and “All By Design“, Jiaani debuts the music video for his new single “Somebody Say”.

This record just came from inspiration of what I’ve been going through for the past couple months. I only speak from a perspective of my actual life. I really liked the Alicia Keys sample, too. That sound set it off!” – Jiaani
