I first became aware of Jasmine’s music and voice over a year before this song was created. I was looking to produce more R&B records and was looking for a singer with a phenomenal voice to help me bring ideas to life.
This song is the result of our first collaboration, and is a part of my project “Kids With Dreams” – meant to be a body of work filled with collaborations with new artists that I’m inspired by and have something to offer the current landscape of music.
Falling is, at its core, a song about vulnerability, moving on, and the amalgam of feelings that come with leaving heartbreak behind to fall in love again. This song is an honest, introspective look at the feelings one has when love breaks down their walls and asks them to find their faith in love again. This song uses chords, melody, and harmony to show the listener that the feeling of falling in love can be scary, but will make you a better person if you trust the process.
Sometimes kids dream of love but get stuck in their ways…The people that love us can be a catalyst for growth as they push you to move closer to your goals, but at the same time they can also be a catalyst for stagnation. Often times in relationships, we can actually be our own worst enemies, and our old ways can keep us from moving forward even though we say we know better. Insanity has been described as doing the same thing over and over but expecting different results, and there’s nothing that can make a person crazier than being in love. We’ll keep trying until we break the habit…until we’re no longer stuck in our ways…and until we allow ourselves to change for the better.
