Published on July 5th, 2021 | by Darren Paltrowitz

Canadian singer/songwriter Olivia Lunny ascended to national fame when she was 17, scoring a Top 40 hit with her 2019 single “I Got You” and earning a Western Canadian Music Award nomination for “Pop Artist of the Year.” More recent milestones for Lunny including winning the “Young Canadian Songwriter Award” from the SOCAN Foundation and inking her label deal with Universal Music Canada/Virgin Music. Now, the winner of the CTV series The Launch is set to release her debut album.

“Who Could Say No” is the latest single from the forthcoming self-titled album of Olivia Lunny, which hits stores on July 9, 2021. The dancefloor ready track came together with a renowned team behind it, including GRAMMY-winning music maker Boi-1da (Rihanna, Lana Del Rey) and hit producer YogiTheProducer (Kehlani, Jessie Reyez), with topline support from Canadian songwriters Tally and Mandee. Per Lunny herself in a prepared statement about this charting track: “I’m blessed to have worked with the best on this one… I love the energy in this song and hope listeners do too.”
