Osasioo finds that the uplifting power of love is stronger than Gravity on his latest single and video — showcasing today on Tinnitist.

The Alberta pop singer’s sweetly romantic new single and “future wedding song” showcases his distinctively warm, velvety voice and unique writing style. “I was playing my guitar when I began to play a certain melody that I really liked,” he explains. “These words: ‘This is the moment of our lives, where we have got what we have wanted’ popped in my head and I instantly knew I wanted to write a wedding song.”

Not wanting to recreate just another traditional wedding song, Osasioo revisited the song whilst swimming in Mexico in January. “I really wanted to write something different, something more structural and narrative, yet captivating. I knew that most traditional wedding pop songs almost always described the wedding day. However, after hours of showcasing my embarrassing swimming skills, it dawned on me — I had figured out the missing pieces of the puzzle to make this song sound different! I decided that the structure would be.”

Osas Igbinosun is a Nigerian-born artist based in Edmonton, who started his career by teaching himself songs on YouTube. His love for music began when he picked up his brother’s abandoned guitar, and from the age of 16, he has been immersed in music, playing for his local church and worship team as a guitarist and singer. From there, it was a goal to only write songs that showcase his expansive voice like no other.

The tune is a collaboration with friend and fellow songwriter Femi Sobaki and Canadian producer Ryan Stewart. Osasioo recorded the track in May 2022 in Vancouver, in the same studio where the likes of Carly Rae Jepsen and Owl City have recorded.
