Can you talk to us more about your new single “Remember”?
Remember is a straight up #hurtbae song. It’s a story about a girl who is in love with a bad boy who can’t decide between the good girl he needs and the bad girls he’s used to.
Did any event inspire you to write this song?
Somehow I’m able to tell other peoples stories. The story isn’t personal, I thought of most women’s heartbreaks and at some point, most women love someone who doesn’t deserve them.
Any plans to release a video for the single?
Yes, we’ve already shot a studio music video for the song which I can hardly wait to release. The quality is incredible.
How was the recording and writing process?
I barely write from my own experiences. I usually listen to a beat and the instrumental itself instructs me. All I know is that I like to write alone with a bottle of wine. I took a month off for myself and went to Cape Tow and dedicate the last two weeks to music during which time I wrote and recorded five songs.
What role does South Africa play in your writing?
Barely any. I’m rarely influenced by my surroundings, I always go internal for influence or I listen to other peoples music and wonder what frame of mind they were in.
How’s your new EP coming along?
My EP is done. I recorded the music in two weeks, I’m just holding back the urge to write more.
Any tentative release date or title in mind?
I will release my EP following the success of my first music video launch which should be in the next few weeks.
How are you hoping to represent women with this record?
This record warns women (and men) not to sell themselves short, not to love someone who doesn’t love them back.
Any plans to hit the road?
I’d love to tour. This is all new territory for me but I know I feel my best on stage.
What else is happening next in Connie’s world?
I’m a business owner so I’d like to figure out more ways to marry my passion and my business. I’m looking forward to touring and being one of the top-selling artists out of Canada/ South Africa.
