Harry Styles is a popular singer-songwriter and actor from Redditch, England. He made his name with One Direction, a boy group created in 2010 during the hit UK TV show, The X Factor. Even though the group didn’t win The X Factor, they later managed to achieve significant chart success in the United States and the United Kingdom.
Harry’s success over the years has been evident. He has gone platinum and double platinum with his first and second solo albums respectively.

While no specific names are mentioned, a lot of people suspect that the song is about Harry Styles and his girlfriend, Olivia Wilde. Both have extremely busy schedules so they may not be able to spend as much time together as they’d like. Sources close to the couple say that they always make time for each other, even when they are apart. Even if the song isn’t specifically about Harry and Olivia, it could be interpreted to be about how tough it is trying to have relationships when you’re a celebrity, and how sometimes, late-night talking is all you have.

Not too long ago, she released an emotive alternative tune, entitled, “Self-Doubt,” which tells an intriguing tale about a young woman’s battle with overthinking and self-doubt. Apparently, she blames herself for everything, and she can’t shake the feeling that she’s bad to the bone. Later, she admits, “Feels like I’m winging it every day and it’s hard to see the right way. But doubt creeps into me every time and tries its best to swallow me.”
“I often experience self-doubt and I overthink a lot, both in my artistic career and in my personal life. This can look like overthinking decisions, worrying about the future, dealing with imposter syndrome, or lying awake at night, replaying conversations in my head. Today’s society places amazingly high, often unrealistic standards on us all. Not living up to these impossible expectations can often taint our self-image. What I’ve learned so far is that the less you worry about external pressures, the happier you will be. Ultimately, don’t be too hard on yourself. You are probably doing way better than you think.” – Cece Vee explained
Cece Vee realized that her nagging thoughts and feelings can become her biggest obstacle. If she allows it, self-doubt can turn her into her own worst enemy. Her honesty and talent bring toughness to her softest songs, and vulnerability to her loudest ones, and “Self-Doubt” walks the tidy tightrope between those extremes. The song crystalizes Cece’s gifts as an artist. When she sings, it feels as if all the possibilities of the world are opening up. For even just a moment, it seems likely that everything will be okay.

Not too long ago, she released an appealing music video for her sensational Latin pop single, entitled, “Problemas,” her sophomore release as a solo artist via Sony Music Latin. The song finds GALE wearing her heart on her sleeve while effortlessly managing to display the feelings that cross our minds. The charismatic artist tells a heartfelt tale about a young woman who shares a toxic relationship with her significant other. Apparently, they use make-up sex as a temporary escape from their problems.
“I wanted to write a song inspired by being in a physical, toxic relationship where most problems are solved in the bedroom. It’s like a vicious cycle: you know it’s not good for you, but you keep coming back for the high and excitement of it. The music video is a perfect representation of it. It’s very stimulating. I’m engaging with different situations and things such as food, renaissance figures, dancing, lights, and rock ‘n’ roll.” – GALE explained
‘Problemas’ contains a relationship-based narrative, powerful pop melodies, ear-pleasing vocals, and a powerful rap bridge that sees GALE’s Puerto Rican roots take over.

Del Harrison is an LA-based singer-songwriter, comedian, actress, TV host, on-air personality, producer, and voice-over artist from New Orleans. Not too long ago, she released an appealing visualizer for her inspiring new Christian single, entitled, “Never Give Up,” which finds Del encouraging listeners to never give up and always keep trying to overcome whatever obstacles standing in their way. “Sometimes you gotta cry, sometimes you gotta testify,” Del passionately sings, “and even when you don’t hear back, you know it’s gonna be alright.” Del wants listeners to utilize their faith in God to secure victory over their dilemmas. Later, she admits, “I did some soul searching and looked in the mirror. Got myself and turned my light back on.”

As soon as I heard the chords to ‘Never Give Up,’ it grabbed me and I listened to the music over and over again – encouraging myself.

Andi is an LA-based singer-songwriter from New Jersey. Not too long ago, she released a sensational piano pop ballad, entitled, “Devil’s Work,” which finds Andi addressing the heartbreak that comes from not feeling worthy. The young songstress encourages listeners that they’re not the only ones who are hurting inside. Later, she tells them, “I know you’re feeling so damn helpless, but before you do something reckless, remember, magazines have editors and makeup does the devil’s work.”
“‘Devil’s Work’ was inspired by the lack of open conversation about mental health. So many people portray perfect lives online yet are struggling behind the scenes. The lyric, ‘Her reflection shows her ribcage, but she thinks she weighs too much,’ portrays the reality of this day in age – especially on social media. There is a beauty standard that is so unattainable that young girls and boys are unable to see themselves clearly. I want this song to help people get through tough times that feel impossible to get through. The line, ‘Magazines have editors and makeup does the Devil’s work,’ is another metaphor for social media setting unhealthy standards. You aren’t seeing the editing of the pictures, posing, or fake lighting; you’re just getting the final product. This is so unhealthy for young boys and girls.” – Andi explained
‘Devil’s Work’ speaks directly to listeners who are struggling with mental health, self-acceptance, and barely making it through the day.
Valencia Grace is a singer-songwriter based in London, England. Not too long ago, she released an appealing music video for her emotive pop tune, entitled, “Goodbye,” which recalls the fragile beauty of Valencia Grace’s debut single, entitled, “It Was You.” The young songstress chose to release “Goodbye” after “It Was You” because both songs are based on a time in her life when everything was falling apart. Valencia passionately sings, “I’m scared, I’ll miss my chance to hold you, and I feel you wrapped around me one last time.” “Goodbye” is the first song that Valencia wrote addressing the breakdown of a family relationship: “It was so difficult because it was about saying goodbye to someone who’s still right in front of you.”
There are so many lessons that Valencia has learned even at 18 years old and she is unafraid to channel her story into art. For Valencia, the process of songwriting is therapeutic, an escape. But, it’s also clear that she’s on a mission to be a voice for other young women. You can see it in her posture, and the way she carries herself, she’s here to make an impact.
One of the most impressive qualities of Valencia Grace’s music is the clear influence she takes from other artists with strong, powerful voices, such as Etta James, Aretha Franklin, and Amy Winehouse.
