Gallant’s star has risen even higher since we CoSigned him at last year’s South by Southwest. He performed at President Barrack Obama’s South by South Lawn, delivered jaw-dropping sets at festivals from Coachella to Austin City Limits, and earned a Grammy nomination for his Ology debut album. But if you think the crooner is gaining attention over here, you should see how big he is in Asia.
Following a sold-out 2,600-person headlining gig in Seoul, Gallant made a knockout appearance at the 2016 Mnet Asian Music Awards. There, he was introduced to a pair of South Korean megastars, rapper Tablo and R&B singer Eric Nam. “When we all met for the first time, our energy just clicked,” said Gallant, “and that synergy manifested itself into [‘Cave Me In’].”
“Cave Me In” is the new collaborative single from the trio, shared today via the video above. It’s a throwback jam that recalls R&B groups of the ’90s with its smooth vocals about the pains of love. Each artist gets their own verse, and while Gallant predictably crushes the opening, get ready to meet your new favorite foreign crooner when Eric Nam comes in to bat cleanup.
