San Diego independent artist Norii pours her heart into her vocals in “I Don’t Love You Anymore,” a song reflecting a damaged relationship due to a switch of her feelings.

Norii is a 23-year-old driven artist who writes and co-produces her music alongside the songwriting and production team Supperclub. She is grinding every day to show the world who she is as an artist, as she does all of her public relations work on her own. Norii is also working toward a degree in mathematics while she works her way to the top as an artist.

“I Don’t Love You Anymore” consists of raw, emotional lyrics that describe the mixture of emotions she feels as a love she once had for someone fades away suddenly and quickly. 

“It’s about when I fell out of love with an ex out of the blue,” Norii said. “It’s a pop song at its core, but the production takes a page from the old school, wall-of-sound for an emotional gut punch.”

The mixture of the playful piano pop beat with Norii’s vocals that truly expose her feelings of confusion and frustration creates a track for the misunderstood to bump to. Most heartbreak songs come from the point of view of the heartbroken, but this time, it is coming from the heartbreaker. Norii is giving a voice to those who feel guilty for falling out of love but would rather not drag a broken relationship on any longer.

Norii belts out in the chorus, “Remember all of our plans? / Run away to France, and tell nobody / Grow old and laugh off our history / Well, I changed my mind.”

Sometimes in life, you come across a person who may seem like the perfect package. They may understand how your mind works and how your emotions work. They may share the same dreams and aspirations with you; they may even have the same taste in music and movies as you. This can become too good to be true, and something clicks in your head and heart that makes the spark go away. Norii is sharing how she feels about her spark leaving with someone she once thought was her forever.

Be on the lookout for Norii’s “I Don’t Love You Anymore,” releasing June 25 on all platforms! Get your tissues ready because she expresses the feeling of falling out of love all too well.
