Chaisley Lussier's "Can't Let You" starts with the emotional equivalent of a punch to the gut: Said you'd keep waiting/ You said that you'd hold me down/ So I kept praying/ Hoping you would come around. The track draws on the ripe, spacious romanticism that ruled '80s pop R&B, and the video matches the plush production with sensual make out sessions and poolside lounging
"I was married young," Lussier told The FADER in an email. "I wrote ‘Can’t Let You’ when my marriage began to fall apart. I really fought for my husband and tried desperately to make it work, but I learned that you can’t make someone want to be a better partner... This was the catalyst song for my project and amazing therapy. You believe when someone says they will be with you forever, they mean forever. But Forever to some, just means For-The-Moment."
Lussier wrote and co-produced the track with Sa’eed and Pablo Dylan. She oversaw the making of the clip as well. Watch above.
