Pop singer-songwriter Stewart Taylor drops his latest catchy single, “Maybe We Shouldn’t Talk” and it’s bound to be the song of the summer! Being a song about breaking ties with an ex-boyfriend, it’s perfect for Pride Month, inspiring listeners to prioritize themselves over messy relationships.
With crisp commercial production, as well as intricate pop and R&B riffs, the sound hints at artists like Maroon 5 and Charlie Puth, fitting since Stewart Taylor has collaborated with Puth in the past. The two met at Berklee College Of Music after hitmaker Kara DioGuardi paired them up to write and record together.
On the story behind the song, Stewart says, “Maybe we shouldn’t talk was written the moment I realized maybe it wasn’t a good idea to keep talking to my ex. -boyfriend. It can be hard to maintain boundaries with someone you used to date them when you were still in love with them. But I’ve found sometimes it’s better not to talk when the relationship was as toxic as mine. We still talk today (although we’re nicer to each other now) and he even likes the song I wrote about him.” Stewart hopes people can relate to her catchy new single – whether or not you have an ex you can’t get rid of, you’re bound to dance along to this energetic bop!
