CloudKid Presents Mickey Valen - Ur Perfect I Hate It (ft. Emilia Ali)

Producer sensation Mickey Valen kicks off his year in music with his latest catchy creation: ‘Ur Perfect I Hate It’. Featuring a perfect fit for Emilia Ali’s relatable lyricism and smooth vocals, the track clearly encompasses both artists at their best; and at only 2:20 minutes long, the single wastes no time in locking you into its unique groove. Valen’s production style stands out once again with his ability to merge his dark and mysterious sounds with a smooth and optimistic undertone, including a guitar hook which will undoubtedly stick in your head for days. Talking about the meaning behind the track, Emilia Ali explains:

“When you’ve been through shitty relationships, it’s difficult to accept when things are actually going well with someone. When I was writing this song, it occurred to be that I’d been seeing the same person for 10 months exclusively, and I was like- oh fuck, this is real now, so if something goes wrong it’s gonna hurt. But the truth is I’m just really happy with my relationship right now…

In a weird, self-sabotage-y way, it’d be easier if something went wrong soon, cause then I could leave before I get really hurt. Which is where “you’re perfect I hate it” came from. It’s easy to get caught up worrying about things that haven’t happened yet, but in reality, it’s really cool to feel happy with someone”

»it's easy to get caught up worrying about things that haven't happened yet, but in reality it's really cool to feel happy with someone«

Ur Perfect I Hate It’ clearly provides the perfect cocoon for Emilia’s storytelling backed by Mickey Valen’s emotive production. Now releasing on Cloudkid for a second time, his artistic vision and meaning come to light more than ever before. And as an artist that stands for “sharing music that I make while really feeling something”, ‘Ur Perfect I Hate It’ delivers nothing less.
