Aáyanna shares her thoughts on the release, saying, “Releasing ‘Don’t Look Back’ is a pivotal moment for me, especially since it’s the first body of work in my catalog. I was really inspired by sirens and duality while recording this project. I can express my hatred for someone and still be sad that I lost them; or sing about how I never want to hear from them again and ask them to come see me anyway, all in the same story. And because it’s all true, I think it’s beautiful. I’ve allowed myself to say what I need to and move on from it. Recording the songs on this EP taught me to trust my instincts and don’t look back.”
The EP features previously released singles “Can You Take It,” “Won’t Cry,” “Kill For Me,” and “Risky.” Additionally, it includes three new tracks that solidify Aáyanna’s position as a rising R&B-inspired artist. She is motivated to bring a fresh R&B flavor to the music scene, a goal she undoubtedly achieves on this new EP.
“Gaslight,” the opening track of “Don’t Look Back,” is poised to become a notable R&B anthem. Its ambient sensuality sets the stage for a musical journey that highlights Aáyanna’s undeniable talent and sets the tone for the entire project.
