Alexis Lynn doesn’t understand why her friend puts up with a man who doesn’t deserve her in her latest single I Can’t Relate — showcasing today on Tinnitist.
The Canadian pop dynamo’s second single of the year lands after February’s Circles and her September 2019 debut Things Get Good. The seven-track release — and each single thereafter — teems with the First Nations artist’s irrefutable musical magnetism and signature songwriting, delving deep into topics of love, lust, vulnerability, self-awareness, and everything in between.
“It’s about looking in on a friend’s toxic relationship, and reflecting what I might do in that situation while also trying to help them see they’re worth more,” Lynn shares. “I was venting to my co-writers that I didn’t understand how my friend couldn’t see what I saw was going on, and couldn’t see that she deserved so much more. I was also saying how I would never put up with the type of treatment she was receiving.
“I was coming from a place of love and concern, and wanted to be really careful not to come across as preachy or bragging,” she continues. “I didn’t want to sound like I was somehow better than someone by saying I wouldn’t put up with that, but rather give them all the reasons they themselves shouldn’t put up with it.”
