Coming to Monstercat to reimagine the Des’ree’s classic 90s hit “You Gotta Be,” Conro is teaming up with German singer-songwriter LissA, in that is one of his most exciting efforts to date. Born in Canada, Conro has used his musical upbringing in order to channel his creativity, and consistently provide the scene with upbeat, electronic gems.
“You Gotta Be” follows Conro’s massive debut album Level Days, that was released earlier this year via Canadian label Monstercat. Assisted by LissA’s heavenly vocal lines, the producer transforms the soulful R&B original into a dancefloor-ready tune, driven by groovy basslines and catchy melodies.
Conro shares, “I was thrilled to work on a track with LissA! After she presented the idea of this cover, I was very inspired to get the song sounding bouncy and positive. 2020 has been a crazy strange year and I hope we can spread some cheer and a bit of nostalgia with this one! Hope you all love it!” LissA adds, “I was listening to this record by chance and remembered it from my childhood. I knew the song and the melody, however, it was the first time I actually paid attention to the lyrics. I loved the deeper meaning of the track and the way it delivers a message to the audience and it was still a hit. I feel like now you either write deep, meaningful songs and they remain kind of indie, or you write songs that actually don’t say a lot, but they get played on the radio. “You Gotta Be“ has got both and I’m super happy I was able to reinterpret it.”
