Showcasing Maisie’s gorgeous voice alongside minimalist strings, ‘Favourite Ex’ is a beautiful, stripped-back ballad about the conflicting feelings left in the aftermath of a breakup, and yet another demonstration of Maisie’s knack for emotive and relatable storytelling.
“I love songs that feel emotionally expansive, and to me ‘Favourite Ex’ holds so many different feelings – love, sadness, regret, gratitude, longing and perspective” explains Maisie. “The phrase ‘Favourite Ex’ was something my sister’s ex-boyfriend said to her on a night out that stuck with me, I just thought it was such an interesting contradiction and so I have him to thank for the title.”
Having now amassed over 100m global streams, Maisie’s star continues to ascend. The official video for her debut single, ‘Stay Young’, garnered over a million views less than five weeks after its February premiere, she currently boasts 3.4m monthly listeners on Spotify and has already received support from BBC Radio 1 and global superstar Sam Smith.
