Emalia is a 19 year old singer/songwriter from Sydney, Australia. “On Your Own” is the new single off of her upcoming EP releasing in Summer 2017. The song, co-written by Emalia and Australian songwriter/producer Adam Reily, tells the story of a cheating partner and explains the emotional journey and thought processes a person might go through after experiencing such a betrayal.
Emalia takes the listener right into the center of the narrative through her powerful, emotionally raw lyrics and soulful sound. Although there is an undeniable aspect of vulnerability and helplessness in her words, Emalia encourages her audience to stay strong in hard times such as these, with themes of empowerment and self-love prevalent in the lyrics as she sings, “Showed no respect for the love I gave/Go, you’re on your own.”
The track features strong 90’s and 2000’s throwbacks, nodding to the likes of Destiny’s Child and Aaliyah, which ties in nicely with Emalia’s own original modern-pop spin.
We really dig this heartbreak anthem from Emalia, so check out “On Your Own” on YouTube.
