One time at Billboard: pronoun drops by for portraits

We saw the singer live at the Heatseekers stage during Billboard Hot 100 festival.


pronoun is aware of what’s going on in the world, and isn’t afraid to speak up.

Earlier today, pronoun came by the media tent at Billboard Hot 100 Music Festival for a portrait session with our editorial team! Newly premiered on Billboard’s website, the red-haired songstress shared the lead single from her debut EP titled, ‘just cuz you can’t’.

During her performance with the band, pronoun showed that she is socially responsible because she briefly talked about world affairs before singing her songs. You can tell it came from a sincere place. Refreshingly, she is aware of what’s going on in the world, and she isn’t afraid to speak up. Hearing the title track live is an experience on its own because of its deep vocal meaning and juxtaposition in sound.

According to an interview Billboard, the lead track is inspired by a relationship that ended. Surely, not being able to think straight is something we go through during a heartbreak of any kind. Your breakup seems to consume you. It is all that you can think about—even when you have spurts of other thoughts.

‘just cuz you can’t’ specifically walks through the trains of […] thought I had when a relationship I thought would never end, did, pronoun explained.

How many of you have been in a relationship that you thought wouldn’t end? When it happens, it tends to feel like a tidal wave that knocks you down, off of your course. Happily, most of the brokenhearted individuals are strong enough to bounce back and heal.

Check out the behind-the-scenes photos of our portrait time with pronoun on the next page.
