Last fall Ant Saunders released his first solo outing “Yellow Hearts,” which quickly went viral on the video-sharing platform TikTok and topped Spotify’s viral charts. Users of the app began layering the track over all different kinds of videos, from makeup tutorials to memes.
Now, there are over 1.2 million videos on the platform tagged with “Yellow Hearts.” One of the most popular ways people used the song is to sing a virtual duet with Saunders from the female perspective, singing along and answering his lyrics. Today we’re getting the highly-anticipated official duet version of the viral from Saunders and fellow rapidly rising pop artist Audrey Mika.
This duet is everything we could have hoped for and more. Mika’s velvety vocals are a perfect match for the dreamy lyrics about falling in and out of young love. Mika was an obvious choice for the collaboration due to the popularity of her own “Yellow Hearts” TikTok challenge video. The clip, released on November 12, has garnered over one million likes, making it her most popular video on the platform to date.

Both artists released teasers of the collaboration last week on their TikTok channels, showcasing their instant harmony. The vocal chemistry between the pair is evident, and it is truly comes to life in this reimagining of “Yellow Hearts.” Saunders spoke on working with Mika, sharing,
“Audrey was such a fun person to be around and I really liked her vibe. We had similar views on a lot of things which made her an easy partner to work with.”
