Prepare to be swept away as acclaimed Grammy-winning songwriter and producer Toby Gad joins forces with the sensational 18-year-old singer/songwriter Angelina Jordan, courtesy of Universal Republic, to reimagine Beyoncé’s timeless anthem, ‘If I Were A Boy’. This emotive rendition marks the latest release of Gad’s eagerly awaited album, ‘Piano Diaries Vol 1’. Renowned for crafting enduring hits for the likes of the aforementioned Beyoncé, Madonna, John Legend, and more, Gad now unveils his own compositions transformed into intimate piano-vocal arrangements. 

Bare and unadorned, this release features soulful piano and string arrangements that bring a fresh perspective on this cherished classic, perfectly complementing Angelina’s evocative, contralto vocals. Her powerful voice, often likened to the late Amy Winehouse’s, commands attention and infuses the track with unparalleled emotion. 

This extraordinary collaboration has already delighted fans live in London, including a standout performance at Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Palladium on May 20th. Reflecting on the project, Toby shares, “Working with Angelina has been nothing short of inspiring. Her ability to channel profound emotion through her voice adds a whole new depth to the song.”  With over 15 billion career streams and a combined fan base exceeding 4 million followers, Toby and Angelina are poised to leave an indelible mark with this heartfelt reinterpretation.

This highly anticipated single will be available for streaming on all major platforms starting May 31st.
