I am not going to lie, every time I see a song about not being someones mother I think of JLo's "Ain't Your Mama", so thats a high bar to achieve. ALITA rose to the occasion!
Her synth R&B pop track "I'm Not Your Mother" is one that shares a message of putting herself first. ALITA goes into the often told story of women supporting the men in their lives and she says, not anymore. Her song is that of potential and women empowerment. Her voice is silky smooth and the track is dynamic and bouncy in such a fun and new way.
The single pivots away from her previous “feel good” pop anthems and catapults her into a new dimension of unabashed honesty. ALITA describes it as, “a song about resistance & self - discovery in the face of modern romance; it explores the implicit & explicit expectations placed on women throughout history. And how empowering it feels to set yourself free from carrying someone else’s emotions on your back." The story starts with ALITA singing about a specific relationship that opened her eyes to the subconscious role she had stepped into of “mothering” her lover, and evolves into a tongue & cheek anthem for women everywhere. The production & writing go beyond modern genre lines, blending live strings with thick bass lines, pop synths, and addictive melodies. “I’m Not Your Mother” is co-produced by ALITA & Zach Nicita (VERITE, Anne Marie, MS MR), and co-written by ALITA & Grammy-award-winning songwriter Jesse Saint John (Lizzo - "Truth Hurts").
