Singer/songwriter Forest Blakk has teamed up with GRAMMY®-winning superstar Meghan Trainor for a showstopping duet version of his hit single “If You Love Her” – available now via Atlantic Records. The single, which arrived in September alongside a moving James Fitzgerald-directed video (watch here), has become a runaway success with over 67 million total global streams and boasting over 1 million weekly streams domestically for the past consecutive 19 weeks.
“If You Love Her” also earned Blakk his official US chart debut on Billboard’s Emerging Artists chart and is continuing its ascend into the top 30 of the Hot AC radio chart this week at #26.
Highlighted as one of PEOPLE Magazine’s “talented emerging artists making their mark on the musical landscape in 2021” and deemed an “artist on the rise” by Billboard, Blakk made his debut with his 2018 EP Minutes and follow-up 2020 sophomore EP Sideways – the latter of which saw Blakk collaborate with the likes of Will IDAP (Train, Florida Georgia Line), Nick Long (King Princess), Carl Ryden (Ricky Martin, David Guetta), Ollie Green (Freya Ridings, Gavin James) & more to tell a love story through an incredibly realistic and candid lens.
The 6-track collection featured singles “I Wish I Knew” (deemed an “introspective look at love and love lost” by American Songwriter) and uplifting anthem of resilience “Put Your Hands Up,” which debuted on an episode of ABC’s Grey’s Anatomy. A compelling live performer, Blakk has toured extensively supporting NEEDTOBREATHE, Gavin James and is set to re-join The Goo Goo Dolls alongside Lifehouse for their “Miracle Pill Summer Tour” in 2021.
