London based singer-songwriter/beauty influencer CC Clarke released her newest single “Back To You” today. This new single follows the success CC has had with previous singles “Boys Do Cry,” “A Little More” and “Not Playing” the later two of which have charting in the UK Top 40 Pop Charts. Collectively CC has reached more than 2 million streams over her last 3 releases with placement on some of top playlists on Spotify and Apple Music. In addition to her music CC has continued to organically grow her Instagram following to over 2 Million from her relevant, on-point and revolutionary beauty content, which resulted in CC being named the most influential online beauty influencer by The Sunday Times. This last year has not only been busy for Clarke professionally in music and beauty but also personally as she welcomed the birth of her first child in 2020. This new personal milestone was something that influenced CC’s music specifically with the message of her previous single “Boys Do Cry.” Now CC is following up another song about another important person in her life, her husband, with new single “Back To You,” but with the events of the last year “Back To You” has a new meaning for anyone hoping to get back to their friends and family following Covid-19.
When asked about the inspiration for her new single “Back To You” CC said, “The original inspiration came to me when traveling a lot for music and work and although I missed my husband I always looked forward to coming back to him and it ignited the idea that no matter what this lifetime or next if you are meant to be and truly soul mates you will find each other again. Then 2020 happened and it hit SO different because suddenly I listened to this song and it had a totally new meaning of getting back to everyone and everything that we miss and cannot wait to experience again whether that’s life or love.”
Even though CC Clarke is most famously known as a beautify influencer, CC has been writing music since she was a small child. At first her parents would find her hand-written lyrics, and were convinced that she was copying poems. And while she was eventually supported by friends and family on the journey to where she is today, songwriting was something that remained something of a side hustle, until she appeared on a Maybelline advert as part of their Color Sensational campaign. The ad was featured in Piccadilly Circus and when they asked to provide a song for the advert, she knew that something had finally, emphatically clicked. She gave them the sultry pop song “Solo,” which was influenced by one of CC’s idols Rihanna. While some may say “you never want to meet your hero’s,” that cannot be said for CC as she had an amazing experience when she was handpicked to spend the day with Rhianna while the platinum selling artists was in London. “We drank tequila and sang The Spice Girls together,” CC grins. “It was insane, so crazy. And afterwards it made me realize, ‘I’ve got to follow in her footsteps!”
