Your Paris Releases New Song “First”
- Kingston-based pop/R&B duo Your Paris, consisting of Laila Kharouba and Nick Babcock, released their first single of 2021 called “First”.
The song is the follow-up to “Rooms”, which was released last November.
It was written by Laila Kharouba and Nick Babcock. Produced by Adrian Morningstar.
“'First,' our new song, is about feeling guilty for your own happiness. You feel on top of the world in your relationship, but it's at the expense of someone else who was left behind and is entirely heartbroken,” Your Paris explained of the song. “Relationships, love, and even 'happiness' itself are not always clear cut. They're complicated, and can be somewhat polarizing, but in a way that's what it's all about. You wouldn't appreciate the highs if you didn't have the lows. 'First' captures the duality of simultaneous love and heartbreak.”
- The duo continued, We decided from the get-go that we wouldn't let our label as a duo restrict us. This song is definitely more personal to Laila, and she takes the lead vocal: it's not your typical duet, but it's what worked for this song and was the most authentic choice.
This is one of those songs that is almost entirely real. It was inspired by a very complicated situation that we felt hadn't really been explored too much in music. We hope you are able to connect with 'First' on an emotional level and reflect as you listen.”
