At the tail end of last year, a promising young pop princess from Michigan, CYN (born Cynthia Nabozny), caught my attention with her killer debut singles: “Together” and “Only With You.” She kept the pulsations coming recently with the unapologetic “Alright” in March.
Opting for a less immediately pop-centered approach, the Katy Perry-signee has returned this month with a sensual and shadowy shiver for the dance floor called “Believer,” a misty offering of euphoric vocals and minimal pulsations.
According to CYN, the song was inspired by heartbreak: “The song ultimately represents the struggle of believing in a love that could last after experiencing one with a surprise ending,” CYN told Billboard. “I think hearing someone sing, ‘There must be something in the air that ‘I’m not breathing/ I am just a jaded girl/ I feel unloveable,’ because of a love gone wrong is actually quite heartbreaking.”
“I would love for a fan to take away the comfort in knowing that falling out of love can be a normal experience and that questioning our ability to love and accept love is something everyone goes through,” CYN continued.
The end result is something dark, dreamy and tenderly crafted. I LOVE!
