Montreal Songstress EROCKFOR Stands Up Against Abuse And Adultery With I DON’T WANT YOU BACK

"I find that 'exes always come back' is a common refrain, but more often than not, we shouldn't take them back. This song is the next step in my evolution, so to speak. I realized I deserved better and wanted to look ahead without taking steps back. I sing, 'once I'm gone, I'm past tense' as my commitment to moving forward. I'm hoping that it becomes a summer anthem”.

Montreal artist Erockfor is back from her 7 years in Korea stronger than ever with her new single I Don’t Want You Back and an album in the works. 

This single, like her album, is inspired by her past love life. Seven years ago, she caught her husband in bed with another woman. She then moved to Korea to get away from the toxic marriage. I Don’t Want You Back allows Erockfor to express herself and represents her willingness to move on from what was a failure. 

With her singular voice – which has often earned her comparisons to Cyndi Lauper, Macy Gray and Amy Winehouse – and an electronic backdrop, the Cameroonian-born Canadian singer gets her message across. 

Speaking about the inspiration behind her single, Erockfor says, “I find that ‘exes always come back’ is a common refrain, but more often than not, we shouldn’t take them back. This song is the next step in my evolution, so to speak. I realized I deserved better and wanted to look ahead without taking steps back. I sing, ‘once I’m gone, I’m past tense’ as my commitment to moving forward. I’m hoping that it becomes a summer anthem”.

I Don’t Want You Back is the second single from his forthcoming album Phoenix, the first being “I Thought You Loved Me”, a song that recounts the events of that famous night seven years ago. 

And it’s not over yet, as the singer will release one single per month before the release of her album in October 2021. So we’ll have to wait until then.
