R&B SINGER ELAINE SHINES BRIGHT IN HER DREAMY NEW SINGLE AND VIDEO “SHINE”
Speaking on the song, Elaine adds: “‘Shine’ is exactly what it feels like to loosen your grip and let go of fear, more particularly the fear of love, in all its forms. At the time I wrote it from a place of heartbreak – watching someone you love not love themselves or love you the way you love them, but wishing them the best regardless because you see the light in them. Making this song was special because I make a lot of sad girl music, but this time I expressed my pain in a different way which was refreshing. I can’t wait to share the rest of the album with you all. P.s. get ready for sad girl season, it’s about to get reallllll emotional.”
