Gearing up for the drop of her upcoming EP the voicenotes this Friday, smooth pop artist Alaina Castillo just dropped a music video for her latest track “just a boy,” and it’s a simple-yet-powerful statement on the encapsulating powers of love. The Houston-raised, Los Angeles-based recording artist wrote the song alongside Romans, one of Castillo’s regular collaborators who also happened to produce the song. As Spotify’s sole US RADAR artist of 2020, a program committed to supporting emerging artists around the world, Castillo’s musical prowess is certainly claiming a growing platform in today’s music scene. 

In the newly released music video, Castillo is trapped with only her thoughts inside a white box lit with gentle pink lights. As she comes up with various scenarios where her lover could act unfaithfully throughout the track, the emotive songstress ultimately resorts to the same doubtful response: “‘Cause you’re just a boy / You’ve got a switch in your head / I’ve seen how quick you forget yourself / I know it all too well.” Stuck with only her racing thoughts inside the same box as she continues to switch between different positions along with the love-induced melody, it becomes evident that Castillo’s emotions are incredibly strong. The track reflects the initial caution once feelings begin to find deep roots, while also showcasing the all-encompassing sensations of love.

Reflecting the bilingual nature of her music, Alaina Castillo’s forthcoming EP the voicenotes will arrive in English this Friday, April 24th, and in Spanish next month on May 22. In the meantime, watch the vocalist’s new music video for “just a boy,” below.
