Twenty-three-year-old singer and songwriter Nicky Youre has released his new song “Eyes On You.” The infectious track finds Nicky describing what it feels like to be completely infatuated with someone at first glance.
“Eyes On You” arrives alongside a camp-style official video that follows an apprehensive Nicky as he cat-sits for a neighbor and, in the end, wins the hearts of the kitten and its owner. Directed by Vision Kid, the visual made its broadcast premiere on MTV Live, MTVU, MTV Biggest Pop, and on the Paramount Times Square billboards.
In speaking about “Eyes On You,” Nicky says: “I wrote this song after a special person in my life moved to California. We were finally in the same state, and it felt so good to be close to them. The weekend before I wrote it, I had gone to a country concert and was inspired by how fun and energetic country songs can be, as well as how full they feel live.”
“I wanted to try to capture those feelings with this song. The combination of those two events was enough for me to write a fun love song you can sing in your car or scream along with all of your friends at a concert,” he carries on.
“Eyes On You” follows Nicky’s summer smash hit “Sunroof.” Tallying over 650 million streams to date, the track spent 11 consecutive weeks in the Top 10 on Billboard’s Hot 100 (peaked at #4). The success of “Sunroof” also earned Nicky his first nomination at the 2022 MTV VMA’s for “Song of the Summer” and saw the star make his television debut on The TODAY Show.
