Multi-Hyphenate Actor, Recording Artist, and Filmmaker Amir Royale Drops Seductive Single “Pruane” (feat. Lulu Kirtchuk and Devereaux)
The Young Stevie Wonder / Prince of Hip Hop Adds A New Dimension to His Diverse Catalog
From Amir Royale
I’ve tasted toxicity. I’ve lusted after romance in a way that may have been unhealthy for a couple of years. I’ve misunderstood cues during intimacy before but have also had partners not reciprocate my passion or attention to detail. “Pruane” is about being in that center space between ‘DTF buddies’ and ‘soulmates.’ That unspoken sense of attachment intertwined with the minutiae of apathy. Somewhere smack in the middle of possessive and protective, sexual and sensual, in-love and out of it. We search for the love we think we deserve – and the people that are right for us; we often overlook or undervalue them. Maybe one day I’ll finally start getting all this stuff right. ‘Til then, I’m content sitting still.
Walk good, take care. 🌺❤️🩹🌺

“Pruane” is a masterful hip hop and R&B record written and performed by Royale, who is joined by the sensational Lulu Kirtchuk (an enormously talented New York City-based vocalist, and Royale’s former classmate at the renowned Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School of Music & Art and Performing Arts). In the record, Royale explores the ideology of someone who finds true love, yet still struggles with promiscuity.
“I want people to consider being more intentional with who they spend their time with,” Royale said. “If more people were intentional in explaining what they want — explaining their needs, and making sure their needs are met — that communication skill would be extremely lucrative to everyone romantically.”
Layered with smooth hip-hop rhythms, the record’s mixture of snappy drums, catchy musical motifs, and passionate hooks, exude dynamic energy — making for an addictive experience. Royale continues to add further dimensions to his existing diverse music catalog, with “Pruane” being one of his most contemporary and captivating yet.
Royale, as expected, completed various roles in the creation of “Pruane,” including being a composer, songwriter, melodist, co-producer, and arranger, as well as mixing and mastering engineer. Devereaux, an in-house producer of the NY-based electronic pop record label IL DOTTORE (and frequent collaborator of mutual NJ/NY polymath DOMENICO), serves as the lead composer and producer of “Pruane,” as well as an engineer.
“Pruane” was predominantly recorded, produced, mixed, and mastered at Splendor Palaces Screen & SoundWorks (Royale’s home studio in Saint Albans, Queens). Recording for Lulu Kirtchuk took place at ShortStack NY in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, with additional engineering done by multi-instrumentalist producer Peter Enriquez. Enriquez is the co-founder and chief audio engineer at ShortStack NY, previously working with famed artists and associated acts such as Ira Coleman (Herbie Hancock, Sting), Eric Krasno (Soulive, LETTUCE), Theo Katzman (Vulfpeck), and even the Long Island signees Lawrence the Band (Gracie & Clyde Lawrence) of Grammy-nominated singer/songwriter Jon Bellion.
The promotional artwork for “Pruane” was imagined by Royale, realized by Markus Prime of Oh Nah Productions, and designed by New York City-based visual arts conglomerate SPECTRUMM Animations.
“Pruane” follows the release of Royale’s soulful, electronic pop-jazz duet “Phonics” in January 2023 and the release of his 5-track Stories of the Lost, Rich & Tormented EP in December 2022. Prior to that, Royale released the certified dance banger “For A Day” in February 2022, the thought-provoking masterpiece “Paradox” in Spring 2021, and a flurry of projects in 2020, such as his debut horror/comedy short film Les Poissons Morts, the “hip-pop” infused electronic hit “Turnin You Out” (which was a collaboration with fellow NJ/NY polymath and pop singer-songwriter/producer DOMENICO). Additionally, Royale re-released his debut 2015 mixtape Magnificent, released the surreal short film drama Please Stop Calling Me (starring A Beautiful Noise Broadway star Kalonjee Gallimore), and acted in the comedy sitcom podcast NEXT STOP. Royale also dropped the soulful hip-hop record “Hold it Down (Freestyle),” and his debut emotional single “People Say” in the early months of 2020.
