GIVE OR TAKE ON JUNE 24th 2022
Gearing up for the R&B event of the year, GRAMMY-nominated multi-platinum R&B star GIVĒON will unveil his anxiously awaited full-length debut album, Give Or Take, on June 24, 2022 via Not So Fast/Epic Records. It is available for pre-order/pre-save HERE.
Setting the stage for the record, the Long Beach singer just shared a cinematic and stylish trailer for the album. Watch it HERE. In the clip, he sits in a condo engrossed in conversation with his mom as he scans the Los Angeles cityscape below him and sets the stage for what fans can expect on this project. Scenes of live footage and memories intercut with these pensive moments, conveying tension and emotion all at once.
He recently heralded Give Or Take with the ballad “Lie Again.” It has already amassed over 8.9 million Spotify streams and 4.4 million YouTube views on the music video. Right out of the gate, Rolling Stone hailed it as “beautifully painful,” and Complex proclaimed, “He shows his strength in vocals as he asks his partner to lie to him about past indiscretions.”
Stay tuned for more from GIVĒON soon.
Last September, GIVĒON shared “For Tonight,” the lead single off his forthcoming debut LP which is now RIAA certified Gold. The song was praised by outlets such as Complex and Rolling Stone on its way to amassing more than 175 million streams worldwide. Earlier this month, GIVĒON released a live version of “For Tonight” as part of the VEVO LIFT performance series. That followed his appearance at the 64th Annual Grammy Awards where GIVĒON joined Justin Bieber and Daniel Caesar for a smooth, jam session-style performance of their chart-topping hit “Peaches.”
GIVĒON also kicked off his European tour titled “FROM THE FIVE SIX TWO” with two outstanding performances this past Tuesday and Wednesday evening in Amsterdam at Paradiso. The tour continues in Berlin, Germany on Friday June 3rd and tickets are available at www.giveonofficial.com. With “For Tonight” and “Lie Again” GIVĒON offers another tantalizing taste of those shows and his debut album, further cementing his status as one of modern R&B’s great storytellers.
