A burgeoning star in his native Canada, SonReal blurs lines between rap, pop, and R&B with ace songwriting instincts and a soulful verve. Taking in the sights and sounds of the world’s most populous country, SonReal feels at home in Chinese culture in the video for “Potential,” his latest single. An emotional, inspirational track with a soaring melody, “Potential” is a motivational anthem about searching for your true self and achieving all you can achieve. Premiered by The Boombox, “Potential” finds SonReal shooting hoops and leading dances with the locals in Hong Kong, Guangzhou, and Shenzen, crafting his message for a global audience. Enjoy this video stream below after the jump.
After years of building a huge fanbase to the tune of 37 million streams and 26 million YouTube views, SonReal announces One Long Dream, his upcoming album, releasing through Black Box. Building upon the momentum from the popular “Can I Get A Witness?“, which dominated the radio and sold platinum in Canada, One Long Dream will expose SonReal to a hungry American audience. Born in British Columbia and based in Los Angeles, the multi-talented artist is one of the biggest stars in Canadian music, earning 6 nominations at the Juno Awards and 10 nominations and 1 win at the MuchMusic Video Awards. He has headlined numerous tours in the US and Canada and most recently opened for Jon Bellion on his sold out NA Tour. Featuring production from Kenneth “Babyface” Edmonds, Rahki (Kendrick, YG, Schoolboy Q), DJ Kahlil (Dr Dre, Anderson Paak, Eminem) and others, One Long Dream will hit stores later this summer.
