With two chart-teasing singles already to her name, 23-year-old Britney Meistre is back with her highly anticipated, Stateside-written and produced track, “What About Us”.
In a musical journey that only truly took flight when she secured a Top 16 slot on Idols SA in the mid-2016s, Britney Meistre’s chart trajectory, first with her 2021 Lee Cole-produced debut, “Where Are You Now?” followed by last year’s “By My Side”, is nothing shy of impressive.
“What About Us” reveals a maturity, informed by her time spent with her Los Angeles-based co-writing and production team (Onkey and Indasoul Records), first with “By My Side” and now, more excitedly with her brand new, California-captured single.
Familiar yet excitingly refreshing, “What About Us” talks to all our most profound insecurities while teasing with it a beat that’s as addictive as any relationship promises at the outset.
Production prowess, married with intoxicating lyrics, makes this track stick in a way that radio truly loves.
The music video for Britney Meistre’s “What About Us” is released alongside the single and was filmed in Johannesburg by Kyle Sloan (Videographer Director) and Darren Farrar (Director of Photography) of Black Water Project.
Britney Meistre comments on the video for “What About Us”
“The video plays out as if someone was getting dressed for a big fancy red carpet or glamorous event, and her date does not show. All she can think about while getting dressed and ready is whether her date is going to pitch or let her down again.”
