18-year-old TikTok star Charli D’Amelio released her debut single “If You Ask Me To,” a ‘piano ballad about relationships and romantic jealousy.’
In a press release, Charli detailed the inspiration about breaking into the music scene: “I’ve always loved music and performing. Once my online following started growing I was able to showcase my passion for dance, but I felt that with so many other people entering the music space there wasn’t room for me. However, with my dad’s encouragement I got into the studio at the beginning of this year just to pursue singing as a hobby With each writing and recording session my love for the process grew, and I became incredibly proud of the music we were making.”
Charlie said that “If You Ask Me To” was written and recorded quite early in her first few songwriting sessions: “I tinkered with it and changed up some lyrics and production over the last several months and got it to a place that made me truly happy. I’m very proud of the work the team and I did on this song, and am so excited for the world to finally hear it.”
