Ivory Layne is a rising singer-songwriter and producer based in Nashville, Tennessee. Not too long ago, she released a spectacular pop tune, entitled, “It Was You.” The song is the first release of 2022 from Layne, who wrote and produced the tune entirely by herself in her home studio.
Ivory Layne – “It Was You” single
“‘It was You’ is my apology letter for valuing comfort over conscience in past relationships. There’s a quote somewhere that reads the opposite of love is apathy; so often in my search for love, I exhibit its antithesis—I know someone isn’t good for me, but I’m lonely and tired of searching, so I stay. This song is me owning that mistake and realizing there’s always room to love better. I produced ‘It was You’ at my home studio in Nashville, and debuted it at the beginning of the year as a Track Tuesday on Instagram. I’m excited for fans to hear the radio edit and be able to stream the song whenever they need a listen.” – Ivory Layne explained
‘It was You’ captures the reflective perspective of a romance lost with the realization that it was never supposed to be. The emotive tune contains a relatable narrative, poignant lyrics, and ear-pleasing vocals that will resonate well with fans of Sigrid, Julia Michaels, and Florence & the Machine. Also, “It was You” possesses Ivory Layne’s anthemic production flavored with a dreamy contemporary pop vibration. Furthermore, the song is reminiscent of Layne’s previous releases, entitled, “Lonely Hearts” and “Celebrate.”
