Jessica Mauboy talks about her new single This Ain't love and her boyfriend,Themeli Magripilis, whom she has been dating since last year
Sky is the limit for former Australian Idol Jessica Mauboy. The talented, young singer aged 26 bid farewell to her family and her long term boyfriend and headed to London to start a new musical career earlier this year. No sooner had she left her home country and loved ones behind, the beauty came up with a very new single This Ain’t Love last week.
The Australian R&B and pop singer who idolizes the Queen B, Beyonce surprised everybody from her family to fans by dropping her new song. After listening to her latest single, one can come to the conclusion that she really seems to be following in the footsteps of her inspiration and idol Beyonce.
The 26 year old talent gained prominence as a teen pop diva at the age of 16 when she first auditioned for Australian Idol, ultimately winning the title of the runner up in the show. After that, there was no looking back. The dusky beauty emerged as one of the most promising young Australian stars of all time. And now after nine years, the beautiful singer bided good bye to her musical team and made her way to the United Kingdom, where she worked for two months and finally came up with music which will surely be making us dance and groove.
Jessica felt that it was time for her to move on with her music and bring something that everybody would love to listen to. So she believed that moving away from Australia was something she had to do for success.
“Going away on my own was so important for this new song and album,” she said.
“I have always been cradled by such a supportive team and I really needed to be independent and to have them trust me that I know what I am doing.”
The singer looked extremely beautiful and classy as she donned Romance Was Born dress. She seemed confident as she has grown past her image of a teenage queen. Jessica is known for her dressing sense and has worn designs from several top designers from Australia.
The talented young lady added that she did not have any fear tackling the electronic pop sound which London has taken to the world.
“I’m not afraid to take on that genre and step into that world and bring my own twist to it.
“There’s no hurt in doing that and I think I have really come out of my shell with this record,” Mauboy said.
Her musical career may be thriving but Mauboy has admitted how being away from her boyfriend Themeli Magripilis was difficult for her. She said that being separated with him was extremely tough for her but the pain gave her inspiration to write song about it.
“About two years ago we were apart for four months, and that was hell. Two months was hard, but he has always been understanding; I’m very lucky,” she stated.
“Loving long distance is definitely hard work and I’ve written about us and that is going to be a really open conversation to have with the public.”
Before heading to London, Mauboy lived in Sydney whereas her partner lives in Darwin. The couple, who has been dating each other from a long time, started a long distance relationship from January 2009. As the singer admitted how hard it was for both of them to cope with the distance, the pair meets each other in Darwin when Jessica is free from her work.
Her new single This Ain’t Love has already hit radio and online music stores which she has been promoting on Twitter and Instagram. The diva will also be launching her own fragrance, Be Beautiful pretty soon. The girl is really doing whatever it takes to reach the height of the music industry.
