We’re saying peace out for the weekend with today’s Inbox Jukebox Presents. LA-based singer-songwriter Ilana Armida’s new single “High No More” is about the frustration when people stop putting in the effort in relationships. Yeah, we’ve all been there, and this (bitter)sweet pop tune will have you ready to let go.

“I wanted to take a different approach to a song about a relationship,” Ilana says. “Instead of talking about love and heartbreak we wanted to discuss the frustration that occurs when one person becomes complacent and what that conversation would sound like if you were able to say to them exactly what you were feeling, as harsh as it may be.”

“Instead of talking about love and heartbreak we wanted to discuss the frustration that occurs when one person becomes complacent and what that conversation would sound like if you were able to say to them exactly what you were feeling, as harsh as it may be.”

The beats stutter and spark like a connection that’s on the outs, telling a story of a romance long gone—even if you’re still part of it. The song journeys from realization to acceptance that it’s time to move on. And Ilana’s breezy vocals are gonna lead you into the light.

“In the session for ‘High No More’ we were all pretty exhausted, we were running on fumes and didn’t realize how dope the song was until we listened back the next day,” Ilana says. You can tell every last drop of emotion has been poured into this song, and the payoff is one hell of a buh-bye. Put your shades on and throw some shade too, singing, “you don’t get me high no more…”

Fun Fact about Ilana:

“Not a lot of people know that I am releasing music through my own entertainment company that I have been building since I was 16. I also actually designed the cover art for ‘High No More’.”
