Jamie Charoen’s “Good Girl” is about losing yourself in a relationship
We’ve all been in that situation where our relationship starts to eat up our lives.
Jamie Charoen’s debut single “Good Girl” is all about this all-too-common phenomenon. We talked to the rising singer about her budding career and how to keep your wits about you in a relationship!
What are you here to tell us about today?
I’m super excited to speak about my debut single â€œGood Girl.â€ I hope that people can connect and relate to the lyrics as well as be a good reminder that even in the world that we live in right now, filled with hate and people trying to tell us how to be, who to be, to not forget who you are and not let anyone tear you down.
What are the three things everyone should know about this project?
“Good Girl” has a dark, sensual sound, with lyrics that I hope really relate to my fans. Being that its my debut single, I really hope that people like it and can vibe to the dark pop sound!
What inspired your new single “Good Girl”?
The inspiration for “Good Girl” began when I was in a relationship that I felt like I was losing myself in. I felt like I had to be who I wasn’t to please this person. I felt like I wasn’t good enough just being me. The song is almost like a internal conversation I had with myself. I found myself in a dark place struggling to regain my voice and myself again.
In some relationships, there’s always someone that ends up putting in more, and that person was me. I would never do anything wrong that would even hurt him, I apologized for things that weren’t even my fault. So one night, as he’s on the other side of the world, not answering my phone calls, I picked up my guitar and “Good Girl” was born.
Whatâ€™s the biggest thing you hope people learn from your work?
The biggest thing I hope people take away from this song is a sense of self and not forgetting who you are. Sometimes, in a world that’s cruel, you can always wear your heart on your sleeve but that doesnâ€™t mean that you have to lose yourself to fit into societyâ€™s rules.
What song would you want on repeat at your funeral?
Hmmm, that’s a great question. I have no idea. Potentially an oldie like â€œStand By Meâ€ by Ben E. King
If we asked your ex about you, what would they say?
Haha, he would probably not know where to start.
If you had to pick one movie to symbolize your life, dreams & goals, what would it be?
Probably “La La Land”!
What small aspect of your day to day life do you hate and wish you could skip out?
Right now my scheduleâ€™s pretty hectic, I think the one thing that’s like a love/hate for me is the 45 min cardio I have to do before my gym session everyday!
What is the most embarrassing celebrity crush you had growing up?
I wouldnâ€™t say its embarrassing buttttt it would have to be Justin Timberlake haha. I mean I’m pretty sure ever little girl obsessed over him in his NSYNC days!
Who were you in another life?
I have this theory that I was some secret agent during theÂ “Great Gatsby” era. I just love everything about that time and it would explain my keen sense of always getting to the bottom of people’s bullshit.
I hear you speak out a lot for equality and women’s rights, what made you decide to start trying to be an advocate for these two things?
For me, I’ve always just fought for what I felt was right. And what I believe is, no matter what skin color, race, gender, or belief you are… us as HUMANS, we need to lift each other up. We need to care and be kind and stop looking only at the surface of a persons skin or their gender to classify their worth.
Can you give us a statement pertaining to these two things and your stance, what do you stand for?
I stand for the equality of women in the world. We are here, we are strong.
Whatâ€™s coming up for you right now, where will we see you and what will you be doing?Â
Whatâ€™s coming up next is I’m working on some new music, traveling, and hopefully touring soon and getting a chance to meet my fans!
