International recording artist Amaal releases “Not What I Thought” the first single off her forthcoming debut EP. Amaal also drops the accompanying music video for “Not What I Thought” directed by renown multidisciplinary creative Sean Brown (Daniel Caesar). The R&B influenced, bass thumping single is a gentle yet confident ballad about the end of a relationship. Hardly a new theme and yet, “Not What I Thought” unfolds as a salve for the question of how an intimate partner can become a stranger. "It's about finally realizing the person you're in love with is not who they've represented themselves to be. That love quickly conjugates to the past tense." – Amaal.
