This single is the first track of her upcoming EP, Heart To Heart which is set to be released tomorrow. Describing the single as ‘atmospheric soul’, Mariam shared that the song is about unrequited love. “It speaks about that moment you realise you cannot make anyone love you or reciprocate affection,” explained Mariam.Looking at her EP title, Heart To Heart, I am anticipating the EP to be filled with the ups and downs of her life. Also, I am looking forward to the lyrics considering she has a natural gift to combine rhythmic melodies with meaningful words which she credited to her Nigerian heritage. Adding on, Mariam has always had a strong passion for words, writing poetry and creative pieces.
