The Irish singer-songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist has seen his recent singles – ‘I’ll Be Waiting’ and theGold-certified ‘All For You’ – fly into the Top 20 of the Official Singles Chart and exceed 300 million streams to date. He has also hit Spotify’s global Top 200, aided by a wider international impact which has included two Top 10 singles in Ireland, Top 20 hits in Belgium, Denmark, the Netherlands and Norway.
Confirmation of the release of ‘Victory’ comes as Cian’s current single ‘Part of Me’ is making a powerful connection with fans. ‘Part of Me’ is Cian’s heartfelt tribute to his best friend Phily who ended his own life, reflecting on those shared moments that define a friendship – memories that will never be forgotten. And Cian is making new memories in honour of late friend, notably with a stunning flash mob performance. Cian falls to the floor apparently stricken, but soon bursts into song – and onlookers are awestruck as he’s joined by a previously hidden 30-piece orchestra as well as a choir who had been waiting nearby.
The video raced to 1.2 million views in twelve hours, and now stands at 10.8 million, and still continues to grow. It has helped elevate Cian’s social media following to 4.3 million at TikTok and 1.1 million at Instagram. The launch of the song saw numerous fans share their own touching experiences of similar tragedies, while Cian’s performances during his recent arena tour with Ed Sheeran saw huge venues lit up as fans flashed lights in memory of loved ones.
‘Part of Me’ provides an insight into the soul-bearing vulnerability and supreme songcraft that Cian demonstrates throughout the ‘Victory’ album. For Cian, it represents the culmination of a lifelong dream. But even more significantly, it represents a triumph in the face of insurmountable odds in which his mother’s selfless bravery, determination and support changed his future for the better.
Cian is also in growing demand as a collaborator, most recently featuring on Libianca’s ‘People’ remix. He was invited to co-write with SZA in Los Angeles, the resulting song set to be released in the future, and he also co-wroteLauren Spencer-Smith’s global hit and UK Top 20 single ‘Flowers’.
