Apple Music Song Stories is the streaming service’s new feature that gives you a sneak peak into the origins and thought process behind some of the songs from your favourite musicians.
This week they’re profiling Elaine, the SA R&B singer-songwriter who reveals the emotions which carried her through the creative process on her hit single “You’re The One”, taken from her debut #1 Apple Music album Elements.
Elaine is a creative powerhouse with a flair for R&B and trap soul. She takes inspiration from artists like her idols Lauryn Hill and Béyonce, combining lyrics relating to her personal experiences with a sound ranging from upbeat to mellow.
Talking about “You’re the One” Elaine explains, “I was just trying to highlight the fact that being open and honest in relationships is so important… it doesn’t get any deeper than that.”
