“Better Off On My Own” is a dreamy ballad that slows down the spring and summer pop music pace.
Written with her frequent collaborator Fred Abbot (Noach & The Whale), the song is hauntingly powerful. Serving almost Lana Del Rey vibes at the beginning of the track to more of an edgy gritty R&B and pop ballad as the song picks up, Charlotte shows her skill to slow between style lines.
Charlotte says, “I was having a heart to heart with my friend in the toilet about my love life. As I finished the conversation, a woman came out the cubical and told she had overheard everything” she explains, “The woman said to me “stop trying to have ownership over somebody...you crave freedom so take it”. She was right, I needed to be on my own. It was the first time I had considered it, and this song was crucial for me to write. It’s the most honest song I’ve ever written”
The track is taken from her forthcoming EP, set to drop early Autumn 2019 and follows the success of her debut album, Careless People.
Having amassed widespread acclaim with singles such as ‘Almost Mine’ and ‘Symphony,’ garnering 8 million and 4 million Spotify streams respectively, Charlotte OC started 2019 as one of the most dynamic musicians to look out for. Charlotte’s seen much success with her collaborations with Jonas Blue on ‘Supernova,’ which was included on his platinum-selling debut album Blue.
