Ali Gatie: If I Fall In Love

The fast-rising pop/R&B star delivers a sweetly romantic tune in time for Eid.

Ali Gatie: If I Fall In Love

By Kerry Doole

Ali Gatie - If I Fall In Love (Warner): He has done it in rather under the radar fashion, but Iraqi-Canadian pop/R&B artist Ali Gatie has ascended to major global success with lightning-fast speed.

Within two years of his first independent release, the You EP,  his cumulative streams have surpassed 2 billion with hits like What If I Told You That I Love You, Say To You, It’s You and Moonlight, establishing Ali Gatie as one of the most compelling new artists straddling the pop and R&B space this year. In 2019, the track It's You achieved RIAA platinum status after spending 13 weeks on the Billboard’s Hot 100, while the video for What If I Told You That I Love You has over 40 million streams.


A brand new track, If I Fall In Love is released as a gift to fans to coincide with and help celebrate the Muslim holiday, Eid. It reaffirms that Gatie has a real gift for romantic balladry, as it is a tender plea to "the one got me trippin'." Short (just 2.30) and sweet indeed.

As an added surprise, Gatie has just announced his new single, Running On My Mind, comes out tomorrow (May 28), with both tracks arriving just in time for his birthday (May 31st). Quite a week for the fast-rising star.

The Weeknd Spotted at Kendrick Lamar's 'Pop Out' Concert in Los Angeles

Unlike former Toronto Raptor DeMar DeRozan, the Scarborough-born artist never got onstage, but he was in the audience of the show that featured Drake diss tracks 'Not Like Us' and 'Euphoria.'

Kendrick Lamar took over the internet last night (June. 19) with his "Pop Out" concert live-streamed on Prime Video from the Kia Forum in Los Angeles. It it wasn't clear Kendrick had won public opinion in his beef with Drake, it was when the stage united cultural figures from L.A. — from up-and-comers to legends like Dr. Dre, basketball stars like Russell Westbrook, even someone Drake name-dropped in one of his diss tracks, DJ Mustard — to dance along to the scathing "Not Like Us."

DeMar DeRozan, the beloved former Toronto Raptor who was once close enough to Drake that he spilled the beans on an upcoming mixtape joined fellow L.A.-born NBA player Westbrook onstage at the Forum during "Not Like Us."
