Raneem Imam is a singer/songwriter and producer from Memphis, Tennessee. She graduated cum laude from Rhodes College with a Bachelor of Arts in Music. Throughout college, she began to hone in on her songwriting, co-producing her first mixtape "DIALOGUE." in 2017 and later her solo debut "Wise Up" in 2018. Towards the end of 2018, she was awarded the prestigious Robert H. Buckman Fellowship to spend a semester abroad in England studying music production and performance at the University of Kent Medway. The Rhodes College Music Department also granted her the Jane Hyde Summer Fellowship award to fund her first solo project during the 2019-2020 academic year.
Her recent single "Nothing Lasts Forever" timely debuted a week before the COVID-19 crisis hit the U.S. and rapidly progressed into a pandemic. A nostalgic Pop tune that bittersweetly reminisces on memories from the past, the music and lyrics have become a somewhat anthem to her senior year of college being cut short and having to say an abrupt goodbye to friends, teachers, and also to the last days of being a carefree college student. Though some days are happier than others, life is constantly balancing out the good and the bad. Just as nothing good can last forever, neither can the bad. "Nothing Lasts Forever" reassures the listener of this balance with an upbeat digital production juxtaposing a somber melodic line.
