The track was released today (August 26) via Universal Music Singapore. Co-written with Singapore Idol alum Haneri and co-produced by RIIDEM and Claire Chew, the bass-heavy track revolves around Iman’s pleas for a lover to initiate romantically (“Take me away, run away with me / I don’t wanna slow down / Show me love”). Brooding synthesisers and half-tempo rhythms propel the track forward, before it ends in an unabashed rave section.

On the new single, the 22-year-old singer noted that the song took multiple revisions to arrive at its final form. “[It] was a track that had been reworked many times as it was a sound that was pretty experimental and challenging to find,” the singer noted. “But it was such a fun process to dip into something new.”
‘WANT’ is the entertainer’s third single with Universal Music Singapore. The singer – who is the sole daughter of Singaporean football legend Fandi Ahmad – had worked as an actress and model before debuting her solo music career with the single, ‘Timeframe’, in 2021. Prior to the release, she appeared on ABANGSAPAU’s collaborative, pandemic-themed single ‘Stay Home’ in 2021, alongside a slew of other Singaporean artists including Charlie Lim, YAO and Yung Raja.
‘Timeframe’ was followed by Iman’s sophomore single, ‘Love Me Little More’ in October 2021.
