When a YouTube top comment reads, “this is like if Ariana Grande and Billie Eilish had a love child,” it’s obvious Alaina Castillo is on to something. Cultivating a massive fan base in the last two years, the former Latin YouTube songstress has now transformed into an incandescent crossover star. Her eager and stirring lyrics speak years beyond her ripe age of eighteen, pairing her profound pop songs with a keen ear for calculated doses of bass and hypnotic guitar riffs. Her narrative strikes a delicate balance of exploring her youth, while also allowing herself to flourish into the person she’s meant to become. “I Don’t Think I Love You Anymore” is at the convergence of her chronicle, as the young artist confronts her romantic accounts illuminated by an atmospheric soundscape, immersing the listener into Castillo’s empathetic frame of mind.
As Castillo comments on the latest single, “this song is really special to me. I wrote it at a time when I was really confused within a relationship, and in a funny way, it sort of served as a wake-up call. After I wrote it, I knew something had to change and it was really the driving force that led to something much better.”
“I Don’t Think I Love You Anymore” is only a preview of Alaina Castillo’s highly anticipated debut EP, Antisocial Butterfly coming soon. Combining her Latin roots with love of R&B and hip hop, her latest work set in Spanglish brings themes of love and happiness everyone can relate to. Kicking off with a tour in December, we look forward to hearing Castillo’s future release.
