Actress/Singer/Songwriter, Mila Nabours, has just recently released her first original song called “In My Thoughts,” in collaboration with Will B. The single is available on all major streaming platforms, with a music video soon to come. Mila was part of the process of writing this single, and has now officially started expanding her artistry with the form of songwriting! This song really displays Mila’s soulful voice, and the emotion behind the song is clearly seen.
“It was incredible writing my first song. I’ve been wanting to peruse music for quite a while, and during the pandemic, because of the extra spare time I had, I finally decided to take this journey! This song is so meaningful to me because of how personal it is, and I really feel like music is an emotional outlet for me. Mental struggle is something I deal with at times, and being able to express myself with singing is something I’m so grateful for.”
The motive behind the song is storytelling, and the buildup throughout the song matches that perfectly. Although music is fairly new to Mila, she seems to be finding her style right off the bat! Mila has been a dancer for years, and it is evident that her form of expression comes naturally to her. In the chorus of the song, Will B is featured, and his voice really does add a lot. His voice is strong and powerful, and this is perfect for the buildup. Together, the two voices blend so well and make for a great song!
