Dropping us straight into our feels, Sabrina Monique unveils her triumphant piano ballad, “Sideshow”. With an intensified soundscape resembling a lovechild between a James Bond theme song and a classic musical masterpiece, “Sideshow” dissects the heartwrenching ‘what ifs’ that follow the end of a relationship. Singing that she is tired of being someone’s “Sideshow”, Monique lends her soul-baring vocals to a narrative that compares her love to a carnival — showing the ways in which relationships can be chaotic, fun, adventurous and, ultimately, never able to live up to expectations.

Speaking on her new track, Sabrina explains, “‘Sideshow’ is a song unlike anything I have written or put out before. A long time coming, this song is almost too personal to me, and I do not think I have opened up like this yet in my music journey. I spent longer than I’d like to admit writing and rewriting as I was on an emotional rollercoaster, and I’m excited for people to hear this vulnerable side of myself as well as my music.”

Showing off her ability to create a totallty nuanced storyline within her songwriitng, we cannot wait to see where Sabrina’s personal approach to music will take her next. To pre-save the track, click here, to stream the single now, head below…
