Joëlle Buyckx releases a heartfelt R&B tune, entitled, “Separate Ways”

Joëlle Buyckx is a Miami-based, Italian-American singer-songwriter from Rome, Italy. Not too long ago, she released a heartfelt R&B tune, entitled, “Separate Ways.”

Joëlle Buyckx – “Separate Ways” single

“You left me here all alone – thinking I’d be dead without ya. You left me here in the cold – how could I survive without you? I remember when I thought you were my man. Now, everything I do, I do it for me, honey. Thought you’d come along, now, I’m moving on with somebody else.” – lyrics

‘Separate Ways’ tells a heartfelt tale about a young woman who recently experienced a painful breakup with her significant other. Apparently, he wants her back and wishes for them to start all over (or go back to how things used to be when they first met). But she knows from experience that their relationship can’t ever happen again because they are simply not compatible as a couple. Therefore, she tells him, “I’m better without you. I know it took me some time, but now, we should pretend that it’s over and move our own separate ways.”

‘Separate Ways’ contains a post-breakup narrative, ear-pleasing vocals, and tuneful melodies that will resonate well with fans of SZA, Kehlani, and Tinashe. The unhappy tune possesses melodic instrumentation flavored with a warm contemporary R&B vibration. Furthermore, “Separate Ways” follows strongly on the heels of Joëlle Buyckx’s dancefloor-friendly single, entitled, “One Forever.”

“You call me after all this time and I don’t even think about you. You text me when it’s late at night but I don’t’ even have your number.”

“‘Separate Ways’ is about finding strength in yourself to rise up after being left in the cold by someone and realizing that you’re better off without them. After my first songs being in the nu-disco editorial playlist, and on radio stations around the globe, I decided to show a different side of my sound that feels more intimate and deep.” – Joëlle Buyckx explained

Joëlle Buyckx comes from a Mexican mother and French father. Music has always been a part of her life, but in the last few years, she’s realized nothing makes her feel the way music does. Her multifaceted upbringing has given her the ability to keep an open mind to different perspectives and she sees differences as strengths – her music derives from that dynamic. Also, she doesn’t follow rules, only what feels and sounds good in its own unique way. What really matters to her is evoking a mood and making people feel a certain way through sounds and visuals. Lastly, she hears in colors and sees in sounds, and she hopes her music can make listeners do the same.

“Boy, I’m super sorry, but let’s not forget that back then you had your chance.”
