Listen: Qrion samples Deniece Williams’ rendition of The Impression’s ‘I’m So Proud’ on new single

Qrion releases her electrifying new single ‘Proud’, taken from her upcoming debut album ‘I Hope It Lasts Forever, which lands October 29 via Anjunadeep .

A spicy club anthem, ’Proud’ is the third single to come from Qrion’s debut album. Featuring an elated vocal hook sampled from Deniece Williams’ rendition of The Impression’s single ‘I’m So Proud’ on an addictive four-to-the-floor rhythm, ‘Proud’ evokes that true hands-in-the-air feeling.

An album built on nostalgia and sentimentality, ‘I Hope It Lasts Forever’ pays homage to Qrion’s memories of childhood and her dad and captures the feelings she felt when moving from her hometown of Sapporo to San Francisco to pursue a career in music. Speaking on the album, Qrion exclaims “I connected with my old memories – the feelings of spending time with my Dad, the time I lived with my family in Japan, and the small but important moments of my life from my life in Sapporo.
