Ali Gatie has exceeded 2.8 billion streams in just 18 months, making a massive global impact in the process. Continuing to skyrocket to new heights he today drops ‘Running On My Mind’, one of his most potent tracks to date. The song was premiered as Zane Lowe’s World First.
‘Running On My Mind’ is the first single Ali Gatie has dropped since his smash ‘What If I Told You That I Love You’ swept across the globe, which garnered nearly half a billion streams while its video surpassed 45 million views. Ali Gatie is poised for superstardom as one of the most exciting new voices in popular music with coverage from Rolling Stone, Complex, Billboard, NYLON and Genius.
Ali Gatie announced ‘Running On My Mind’ earlier this week when he shared another song ‘If I Fall In Love’. Now with the arrival of ‘Running On My Mind’, and just in time for his birthday on May 31st, Ali is celebrating with his fans, the LSNERS, all over the world.
Raised in Mississauga, Canada, just outside of Toronto, and of Iraqi descent, 22-year-old phenom Ali Gatie has quietly ascended as a singular voice. Within two years since his first independent release, huge streaming stats for earworms such as ‘What If I Told You That I Love You’, ‘Say To You’, ‘It’s You’ and ‘Moonlight’ have established Ali Gatie as one of the most compelling new artists straddling pop and R&B.
Last year he released his debut EP ’You’, achieved RIAA Platinum status for his breakout smash ‘It’s You’ (which spent 13 weeks on the Billboard Hot 100) and sold out his first six shows in less than ten minutes. Ali Gatie goes deep on the big subjects that have always consumed great artists: Vulnerability, love and devotion are concepts that he confronts head-on. The openness in his music is palpable and his fans continue to multiply and hang on to his every word.
