A woman on a mission, a rebel with a mission. Fazura’s first English single, “Can’t Forget Me” is all about self-empowerment. The song was composed together with Los Angeles-based Cameron Forbes and Willy Beaman whom he had worked together with famous singers such as Demi Lovato, Nicki Minaj and Kelly Rowland.
“It’s so easy to lose yourself when you’re faced with adversity and challenges.
This song was inspired by so many amazing women I know who still managed to find the strength to celebrate themselves, despite going through immense pain and heartbreak.”
“When I first started writing the song with Cameron, I wanted it to channel strength and the importance of loving yourself more than anything, instead of focusing on heartache.
This song is not just for the ladies- it’s for anyone going through a hard time, and I hope my fans love the message it carries as much as I do”
“There are parts of the song which may seem provocative or even scandalous, but it’s actually just a reminder to always love ourselves and find the strength to go on, even on days when it seems impossible to.”
The song was released on the January 18th and in just seven hours after its release, it has overtook US singer Ariana Grande’s “7 Rings” at the top of the iTunes chart.
Her music video was directed by award-winning commercial director, Fabian Joseph and it was shot in several local places within two long nights.
Just like the song, the music video also carries a strong message — it’s a the story of rising above and never looking back that will definitely leave an impression that no one can forget.
Fabian describes his excitement in working with Fazura:
“It’s like working with an old friend! We’ve built this relationship over many many many years of knowing each other that we now trust each other to push the idea to be better. We may come up with crazy ideas, but it’s Faz who has the guts to do it! Standing at the edge of a building, shooting so close to fire flying in her direction – she did it all on this shoot. And we loved her for it!”
