Hi Audrey, welcome to LA Music Review! Tell us a little bit about you and your music.

I’m Audrey Milan, a singer-songwriter from Bulacan. I started writing songs back when I was in 5th grade but started producing them professionally only in 2021. It started when I joined this songwriting competition on Kumu for fun and unexpectedly made it as a finalist. So I thought, if people enjoyed my music, it might be worth getting it out there.

My music influences nowadays include NIKI, Ariana Grande, Sabrina Carpenter, Mariah Carey, and 2000’s RnB vibes.

I’m grateful that my previous releases got good reviews and streams—”Eyes“, (this song was playlisted in RX93.1‘s Indieground playlist) and “(not a) Disney Princess.”

Congrats on the release! What was your inspiration when you were writing this project?

Released on February 14, 2023. My friend’s bio has a very interesting line and it inspired me to write a story about it through a song. It was in my “song bank” for a year until I found Ken Ponce, who I thought was the perfect person to produce “I love u goodnight” since he really knows how to capture the modern RnB that I want.

What is your vision for this song? What lessons would you like to impart with your audience?

“I love u goodnight” is very different from my previous releases. It offers a different vibe I envisioned for my musical identity—RnB Pop. When I was brainstorming with my producer, Ken, we were looking for a genre that fits my personality and will be appreciated by the target audience, which led us to go with 2000s RnB.

The song is very romantic and happy. I think it really applies to what most teenagers and young adults are experiencing today. Budding romance during the talking stage, plus the thrill and uncertainty of the relationship during its early stages is what this song implies.

What is your favorite part of this body of work?

My favorite part is the hook, especially on the Chorus part, because it’s very catchy.

Anything else we should know about it? Future releases? 

Yes! I love u goodnight is the first single on my first self-titled EP. I’ll be releasing another song in April. I’m excited and scary because I’m not sure if the people will receive it as much as they’ve received “i love u goodnight.”
