Following the releases of live performance videos to “universe” and “u got me,” rising R&B singer-songwriter thuy drops another visual to “figured u out.” These tracks are all off her highly acclaimed debut EP “i hope u see this.” The video will also go live on TikTok with a first look at her next single “inhibitions” thuy dropped her debut EP in October 2021 and it has amassed over 20 million global streams!
“’figured u out’ is about a toxic relationship but I didn’t want to make the video about that. I wanted to make it more abstract and quirky and about actually figuring things out.” says thuy. “There are scenes with the detective aspects and games such as Tic Tac Toe, Rubik’s cubes, and puzzles to hint at the theme. It’s a really playful video with a bit of satire. I wanted to film it this way since the song is an upbeat anthem for the girls that were going through a breakup. My whole goal was to make it more playful rather than have the guy be the main focus of the video.”
Vibrant Vietnamese-American artist thuy is setting herself apart in today’s pop R&B scene. The Bay Area native grew up surrounded by music and at age 9, knew she wanted to be a pop star. However, with no exemplars to look up to who looked like her, thuy traded her musical hopes for a career in medicine. After a few lackluster years in the medical field followed by a chance visit to a studio, thuy finally saw what a professional career in music could look like and in no short time, recorded her first record, “Hands on Me”. As the track hit radio on Bay Area’s KMEL 106.1, thuy cemented her earliest step into pop R&B success.
Since then, the now Los Angeles-based artist has released several records showcasing her angelic vocals, skillful songwriting, and modern R&B stylings. Having amassed over 85 million global streams across her catalog and garnered support from premier publications and major DSP playlists including Billboard, Paper, Harper’s Bazaar, NYLON, Vibe, Lyrical Lemonade, Flaunt, Earmilk, Spotify New Music Friday, and Apple Music Best New Songs, thuy proves that her celestial voice and knack for earworm melodies are here to stay.
