Toronto-born, Los Angeles-based pop singer, songwriter, and performer ANJULIE debuted her brand new music video for “You and I” last week. The song follows up last year’s sparkplug hit, “Brand New Bitch”, which went double-platinum in Canada and snagged nominations for “Pop Video of the Year” at the 2012 Much Music Awards and “Dance Recording of the Year” at the 2012 Juno Awards.
Based around snappy acoustic guitar and a soaring club-ready refrain, “You and I” boasts production by Italian super producer Benny Bennassi [Madonna, Chris Brown] as well as ANJULIE‘s impeccable delivery. It’s an instantly catchy anthem that you won’t soon forget.
ANJULIE remains an in-demand songwriter herself. Recently, she penned the lead single from Nicki Minaj‘s Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded the ReUP, “The Boys”, and Cher Lloyd covered her Canadian smash, “Stand Behind the Music”, as a single. She’s also written for everyone from Chris Brown to Laidback Luke to Fefe Dobson and gotten placements on The Vampire Diaries, MTV’s The Hills, and The City.
