‘At Night (I Think About You)’ is MNEK’s follow-up to ‘Never Forget You’, a duet with Swedish singer Zara Larsson which peaked at Number Five in the UK earlier this year and has since cracked the Top 20 in the US.
The original electro version of ‘At Night (I Think About You)’ debuted on Annie Mac’s Radio 1 show in May.
London-based MNEK – real name Uzoechi Emenike – is also an in-demand songwriter-producer who has worked with Madonna, Beyoncé, Diplo, MØ, Bastille, Rudimental, Clean Bandit, WSTRN, Craig David, JoJo, Lianne La Havas and Kylie Minogue.
He co-wrote ‘Hold Up’ from Beyoncé’s ‘Lemonade’ album and sang backing vocals on Madonna’s recent hit ‘Living For Love’. He also worked on the UK Number One hits ‘Wings’ by Little Mix, ‘Gecko (Overdrive)’ by Oliver Heldens featuring Becky Hill and ‘Need U (100%)’ by Duke Dumont featuring A*M*E.
His debut album, currently untitled, is set for release in 2017. Having already performed at Parklife Festival this summer, MNEK will deliver further festival sets next month (August) at V Festival and Boardmasters.
