Singer-songwriter ELINA provides all the company you need on new single “Champion” ahead of her debut EP in Spring.
“Champion” is a deep, stirring cut, powerfully led by the mist sumptuous piano chords. Stripped back and raw, the warmth from ELINA’s vocals is welcoming yet the deep lyrics on this particular track are greatly personal ultimately moving, as she speaks on the unease & vulnerability in not knowing the answers to how their hearts desire feels back.
“To me, Champion is about fear” explains ELINA. “Personally, when I get scared of losing someone or if I feel inadequate in a relationship – any relationship – I tend to disguise that fear with rejection. Sometimes even with anger.”
“The meaning of “break my heart like a champion” is basically a request to your loved one not to break your heart slowly or gently. Sometimes the fall hurts even more than actually hitting the ground – it’s easier to know what will happen instead of fearing it and to live in uncertainty.”
Relatively new to her music career, ELINA already boasts around 16 million streams to date on just the first two cuts on Spotify alone. Already an established songwriter with credits from the likes of NEIKED, Maroon 5 & SZA, there’s more than enough proof that she is indeed something special.
