We spoke to Elliott all around the solitary and what happy accident motivated this one-take music video:
"I to be a sophomore in college and also I was dating this guy. The partnership was one whereby I felt prefer I couldn’t yes, really be myself. I was an extremely busy through music and also I was in institution , examining philosophy. I was act a lot and I think this guy was a tiny intimidated by that... I had this moment where I believed to myself 'Oh my goodness possibly I am also much! probably no one is walking to day me till I ton it down.' and also at the exact same time, I remained in this class around women in ideology in the <17th century> in England. Women in <17th century> England no really do philosophy, except for a pair and those women released their very own philosophies under their own names. I was so inspired by these women and also so empowered by lock I ended up composing my an elderly thesis around them. I damaged up v that guy and three days later I created "Might Not prefer Me." therefore it’s yes, really a song about embracing yourself. It's certainly a tune that ns wrote around being a woman however I think it’s type of a song around any kind of empowerment and that idea of being yourself and also not being afraid of what everyone thinks around you."
"It to be honestly impressive but additionally really hard. Ns was an live independence artist the entirety time i was in ~ college. There to be moments whereby I would be the end on the road on the weekends or in the summers, yet I would still have schoolwork. I would have actually a document due at 10 p.m. However I was going to it is in on phase It to be a most time management and sort the thinking very creatively about when ns did things and not a the majority of sleep. Yet it was also really fulfilling and also I was doing two things that i loved therefore much."
"It’s actually really funny since we placed so much right into this video, my team at Atlantic and also I. We had all this different set ups and also I remained in all these different outfits originally. Us really want it to be this big, large music video.
"I remember the day us shot it. Everything was walk well and the shoot was going so wonderfully yet you kind of recognize when you have those magical moments wherein you’re so linked to the song and also the scene. I remember having actually a conversation through the director sarah McColgan. Us were in this alley which is whereby we shot component of the video. It was practically an apocalyptic collection up. Prior to the yes, really take, buy it looked in ~ me and also she says 'You know, i was dumped in an alleyway once. But it to be such an empowering minute for me and I’m so excited for this shot due to the fact that it really way something come me.' once she claimed that come me i freaked out. We had been working but I had never heard her take on the decisions we produced the video. It just acquired me so excited and so into it.

"So we finished up getting the multi take video and it simply wasn’t connecting. We saw this one shot and it just — that’s it. I’m really proud the it due to the fact that the one shoot is just me, authentically who I am and there room some really funny moments. And also that’s what the track is every about, me coming into my own and also not worrying."
"A many young girls seem come gravitate towards it. I have 50 videos on my phone of tiny girls to sing the song and that’s really funny to see. Ns think sending a article of embracing yourself to younger youngsters during together a developmental time is important. That done yes, really well top top Spotify. Spotify has actually these Feminine Friday playlists or ladies in pop playlists and that’s whereby it began to check out some necessary growth. Spotify simply sort of just put the on there and also that was really cool...I no sit under to write a mrs empowerment anthem however I feeling like now is really the moment for ladies to take up room and it is in themselves. Therefore that’s yes, really been the solution to it, that’s it a timely track and critical song for simply being yourself."
"Take together many opportunities as girlfriend can. If it speak to you, to speak yes. Say yes to playing shows and also just gaining yourself the end there. Ns feel like once I’m asked this inquiry I’m like 'Oh simply be yourself!' and also that is the thing that ns truly believe. Yet maybe something that’s a little much more helpful and proactive is as you get much more and more opportunities with music, every suffer counts right into making girlfriend the artist you want to become. So really take time come reassess. Prefer 'Oh, ns played this show, just how did ns feel after? What execute I think i can far better at? What execute I think ns did yes, really well?' take it those moment of enjoy to really hone in on that you are and what you want to carry into the musical space. That a difficult thing.
"My dad actually said to me sometime, best in the start as ns was starting to play much more shows. That said: 'Brynn, just do the following right thing.' ns think that ideology really stuck to me, like simply do the next opportunity. Carry out the next right thing and also it’ll slowly build and also blossom right into something beautiful."
