“YELLOW HEARTS” FROM BUBBLE EP CERTIFIED GOLD IN THE U.S. LANDED ON BILLBOARD HOT 100 WITH OVER 400 MILLION STREAMS
Ant Saunders stated: “In my first session with Grady, he pulled this really catchy guitar riff out of nowhere before we even knew what we wanted to write about, so he ended up making a beat around that. When thinking of what to write about, I thought about my relationship and how I think my girlfriend deserves so much, so we were pretty much like ‘let’s make a song about spoiling your girl’. I show a lot of my work in progress to my friends and family, and ‘Spoiled’ was always a favorite”
2020 kickstarted with the release of Ant’s debut EP, Bubble – listen HERE. He then released “I Had A Love Song” featuring critically acclaimed, Nigerian R&B duo and sisters, VanJess. Ant was confirmed to perform as support for GRAMMY Award-nominated, multi-platinum and chart-topping singer/songwriter, Camila Cabello, on her Romance Tour which was slated for last fall.
A full DIY effort, the entire Bubble EP was written, recorded and produced by Ant Saunders. The impressive collection of songs includes viral hit, “Yellow Hearts,” which was created in his bedroom and released on the day of his high school graduation. The track is now certified platinum in the U.S., and landed a position on the Billboard Hot 100. Ant’s Genius Verified video for “Yellow Hearts” has just about 1.5 million views. He was also profiled in Virgil Abloh’s RSVP Gallery website, wearing pieces from Off-White, Stone Island and Raf Simons. Emanating a nostalgic and intimate tone, the EP features lead single, “MISCOMMUNICATIONS” with accompanying video, and a soul-stirring, gospel-inspired track titled “It’s Over.” The EP showcases Ant’s prodigious abilities as an artist, in both his vocal performance and songwriting.
