Tori Kelly‘s “Nobody Love” is pretty good as far as pop music goes. The feel-good Max Martin-produced track was a great way to introduce the YouTube star to a more mainstream audience. But, if you’ve been a fan of Kelly’s for a while, the single may have left you worrying about the singer’s future sound.
It’s not uncommon for singer’s to abandon their stripped-down, soulful sound the minute they find fame, but the title track for Kelly’s debut album Unbreakable Smile finds the singer promising not to sell out.
Not only is the song more aligned sonically with Kelly’s EPs, such as Forward, but the song also finds the singer promising she won’t be taking off her clothes (“God made me sexy I don’t care if only I know”) or making tabloid headlines any time soon (“I’d rather make them yawn than be a pawn on your chess board”).
Unbreakable Smile is scheduled for a June 23 release.
