Savannah Ré On Signing With Boi-1da & Universal Music, New Single “Where You Are” & Career Goals

A highly-skilled songwriter, Toronto-based R&B artist and songwriter Savannah Ré has developed an acumen for an arrestingly honest style of self-reflection that’s the mark of music’s elite. With a trained eye for capturing small details, Ré crafts songs that forfeit polished stories for authentic ones. It’s this carefully-refined formula for songwriting that has brought her under the mentorship of Grammy Award-winning producer Boi-1da (Drake, Eminem, Nicki Minaj, Kendrick Lamar) and has made her the go-to collaborator for R&B’s upper echelon where she’s written with artists like Babyface, Daniel Caesar and Wondagurl and touring alongside the likes of TLC and Jessie Reyez.

This week on July 23rd, Savannah Ré will release “Where You Are,” the first single from her debut EP Opia, which is due out later this year. Co-written by Savannah Ré and produced by Allen Ritter (Cardi B, Kanye West, Rihanna, Travis Scott) and the aforementioned Boi-1da, “Where You Are” serves as the follow-up to her recent releases “DVP” and 2019’s “Best Is Yet To Come”; “Best Is Yet To Come” was notably selected as one of the “100 Best Songs of the Year” by the taste-making Apple Music.

I had the pleasure of interviewing Savannah Ré by phone on July 21, 2020 about “Where You Are,” life during COVID-19, future plans and plenty more. The full interview is embedded below for your listening pleasure, while more on Ré can be found online by visiting
