CAPPA’s snappy and spunky pop, like the anthemic “Waste My Time”, has been making a big impression while still flying under the radar for quite some time. But if she has it her way, that tension is about to break. The starlet is premiering her new single, “Tension”, exclusively on V, and it’s a stormer that perfectly shows off her quirky pop sensibilities and value of female empowerment. The track grooves and stutters effortlessly, brimming with acoustic guitar plucks, bubblegum pops, and hypnotic breath loops, before finally exploding into an irresistibly catchy chorus—and ridding of all the tension. Think of it as the little, more brash sister of Selena Gomez’s “Hands to Myself.”

“‘Tension’ is one of my favorite songs I’ve been a part of. I wrote it with two girls who also produced it, which felt special to me in itself because I barely ever get to work with females,” CAPPA explained about the song. “We were talking about what we were going through and about being so attracted to someone and there being all this pressure. Sometimes you just want to scream, ‘DO SOMETHING! WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?’. It’s about that breaking point.

After making the move from Nashville to LA, the singer is ready to make a full-fledged music comeback, and the bubbly “Tension” is just the start. “I love this song because it’s lighthearted. I’m in a happy place in my life right now and I think that shows through in the new music I’m working on.” Listen below.
