ALI GATIE - New Music Video - THE LOOK


Ali Gatie returns with his thoughtful, introspective debut album Who Hurt You?. Alongside the release of the album, Ali shares a striking new video for the standout single from the project titled “The Look” featuring Kehlani. Listen to Who Hurt You? HERE via Warner Records. As a whole Who Hurt You? is the latest evidence of Ali Gatie’s status as one of the most heartfelt, diaristic writers in pop music. Full of inward-looking tracks like the previously released “Can’t Give Up,” “Crying in the Rain,” and “Perfect," the album reflects a marked evolution of sensitive and emotionally rich songwriting that Ali has become beloved for. It finds Ali searching for love in a world that’s often painful, and making tracks for listeners who feel the same. It also introduces another side of Ali that exudes confidence and swagger while still rooted in love and connection, exemplified by "The Look," but as Ali says "it’s meant to be escapist too." “You hear ‘The Look’ featuring Kehlani, and you would never expect it from me,” Ali says of the uptempo collaboration. “It's a sexy song, lyrically. There's a story and there's a concept, like all my songs, but it's not gonna hit you in the feels. It’s going to make you want to dance.” Tracks like these embody the versatility flourishing throughout Who Hurt You?, and throughout his work as a whole. Ali has already amassed over 4 billion global streams and collaborated with the likes of Alessia Cara, MAX, Marshmello, Tate McCrae, and Ty Dolla $ign. A go-to narrator for love and heartbreak, his EPs The Idea of Her (2021) and YOU (2019) solidified his innate ability to trace the contours of every emotion, and the 17 tracks of Who Hurt You? cohesively address the ever-present question that has most often been asked by fans along the way. This fall, Ali Gatie is set to begin his headlining world tour in Copenhagen on Sept. 28. The 42-date run will conclude in Portland on Dec. 17. Tickets are available from TICKETMASTER, and all dates are listed below. That tour, coupled with the sensitive songs on Who Hurt You? will no doubt see Ali achieve his biggest goal in making music: to forge an even deeper connection with his ever-growing following.

Gatie first gravitated toward writing as a child in the suburbs of Toronto, after his parents emigrated from Iraq. “Iraqi people, we're known for being poets and for making really sad heartbreak music,” he says. Since then, Gatie has resonated with listeners by combining intuitive lyricism with evocative soundscapes. From romantic tracks such as his double-Platinum 2019 hit “It’s You” to conceptual EPs You (2019) and The Idea of Her (2021), he has soundtracked every phase of falling in or out of love. “The one theme prevalent throughout my whole career was this question of, ‘Who hurt you, man?’” he says. Who Hurt You?, naturally, provides answers digging deep to show his growth as a man and his versatility as an artist. Whether it be one of his R&B ballads like “Million Miles Apart” or a daring pop single like “The Look” featuring Kehlani, Gatie uses the record to push himself to share all of himself with his dedicated fans. After all, that’s his biggest goal, to reach out a hand to people who might feel the same and start a conversation. FOLLOW ALI GATIE: Twitter | Instagram | TikTok | YouTube
