HRVY Samples Shanice In Video For Brand New Single, ‘Runaway With It’

Directed by Jordan Rossi (Rankin Film Productions), HRVY samples Shanice’s legendary hit, ‘I Love Your Smile’, in the video for his new  single, ‘Runaway With It’. The new release  comes ahead of the news that HRVY will be opening the National Television Awards 2021, live from The O2 London, on September 9th

The new single is out now on BMG.

‘Runaway With It’ is dance pop at its finest and an exciting new offering from an artist who’s already streamed over 800 million times on Spotify and enjoyed an incredibly successful stint on the UK’s biggest TV show, ‘Strictly Come Dancing’, which saw him and his partner Janette Manrara become finalists.

Talking about the new track, HRVY says:

“I’ve always wanted to use a sample in one of my songs, and when I heard the original “I Love Your Smile” by Shanice, I fell in love with the du du du doo duduooo bit!! Something that gives nostalgia for some of my older fans and something new for my younger fans.”

It’s a new, fresh and exciting time for HRVY with his recent signing to BMG, and which will see plenty more new music this year. Next week he will take to the stage live at London’s O2 Arena to perform ‘Run Away With It’ for the very first time at The National Television Awards, live on ITV1 on September 9th.

At only 22 years old, HRVY fosters an incredibly mighty online following spanning the globe, pushing a billion Spotify streams, and a string of sold out headline shows in North America, Asia and Australia.

His live performances in the UK already include sold-out headline shows at Hammersmith Apollo and appearances at BBC Radio 1’s Big Weekend, plus Capital FM’s Jingle Bell and Summertime Ball. During the pandemic, HRVY took his headline show to the Royal Albert Hall in April and drew a virtual audience of thousands worldwide.

His postponed live dates, including an extra night at London’s iconic Palladium, are currently rescheduled to take place in October this year.

“I’ve been waiting for this tour for over a year now” he said, “and I can’t wait to now be able to play new music to my fans who have been so patient.”

Having also recently signed to UTA for live, HRVY’s new label, BMG, reached a milestone last year with three albums occupying the UK top 10. HRVY recently joined their roster of talent which includes Kylie Minogue, Steps, JLS, McFly and KSI.

It’s time for the boy from Kent to take the world by storm.
