Becky Hill & David Guetta Release New Single “Remember”

“Remember,” which is co-written by Becky Hill and co-produced by David Guetta, is the most recent single to be lifted from Becky’s upcoming debut studio album out this Summer.


In speaking about “U Not There,” Kina says: “This track means a lot to me because I made it during a period when I wasn’t feeling inspired and it helped me snap out of it. ‘U Not There’ is extremely moody with a few elements to keep the production simple yet touching. I worked with Neenyo who added some great guitar riffs which were exactly what the track needed to take it to the next level. The vocals from Mark Johns perfectly balance out the beat helping you chill out and feel the vibes of the track.”

This EP embodies a specific mood, paying tribute to the city of Nashville – the capital of country music – which will always have an influence on my art.

This one is special to me as it makes me think of my Grandma Maisie and my Papa Al. My Grandma would listen to this song and think of my Papa when he passed away.
