Inspired by the messaging behind “Come Back To Me,” DoorDash launched a unique celebrity driven campaign to bring audiences back to the basics with a virtual dinner party, which will exclusively air as a live premiere on YouTube, Thursday May 14th [youtube.com/comebacktome]. Chantel and special guests will come together for an evening of celebration, connection, and giving back to communities. DoorDash will donate meals to families in need through their partnership with Feeding America based on the amount of viewers that tune in.
“I always try to go into the studio with experiences I can draw inspiration from,” says Chantel, who produced and co-wrote this single. “I tend to pull from real life experiences when creating, whether it’s a relationship or a mood I’m feeling. The meaning behind the song has two parts—It’s about being in a relationship and realizing that your partner has changed in a negative way, but it also calls for self-reflection. It challenges you to look at yourself to see how you’ve evolved and if you accept the person you are today.”
Shaylen adds, “When Chantel and I got into a session together everything just clicked for this song. I cut this vocal in 25 minutes, and the energy of it just felt right. I like the meaning of this one a lot…On the one hand it deals with nostalgia and thinking that the older-version of someone was better, but on the other it’s saying that the old you is an illusion. There’s also a part of this song that is deeply personal and directed at myself. Like man…I liked parts of myself better back in the day. But the truth is the present moment is our best moment. It’s all a state of mind really.”
On the track, Shaylen soulfully delivers the songs anthem, “I like the old you, better, better, better, come back to me.” As Chantel masterfully integrates a synthesizer, drum programming, and piano into this dynamic, up-tempo production.
“I listen to a variety of different genres, so I’m constantly finding elements of certain songs that I love and bringing them together to create my own unique sound,” says Chantel. It notably marks the first collaboration between these two fiery female forces. “This was a very collaborative process. We were constantly bouncing ideas off of each other and experimenting with different elements until we found what felt right,” says Chantel.
“Come Back To Me” follows on the heels of a string of hits for Chantel, including “Wait” [feat. Offset and VORY] (41.1 million Spotify streams), “Facts” [feat. YG, Rich The Kid & BIA] (8.1 million Spotify streams), and “Chase The Summer” [feat. Jeremih] (9 million Spotify streams), to name a few. Additionally, she has received looks from RollingStone, E! Online, Billboard, Complex, and more.
It also maintains Shaylen’s hot streak and follows her most recent anthem “Sprite,” which had Hollywood Life proclaiming, “For Shaylen, the sky’s the limit.” She will serve up more music very soon!
“Come Back To Me” is the ultimate feel-good, dance-pop record with all of the ingredients of a summer smash. Get ready for more!
About Chantel Jeffries:
Over the past few years, Chantel Jeffries has traveled all across the world as part of her whirlwind career as a DJ. In her constant globe-hopping, Jeffries has tapped into her infinite curiosity about music of all kinds, gaining a deep knowledge of everything from Euro-house to dancehall. Upon returning to L.A., Jeffries began channeling those inspirations into her burgeoning work as a producer—a process that finds the former math whiz using mathematical sequencing to create her artfully arranged tracks. The first taste of her hip-hop-infused take on dance music: “Wait,” a bright and beat-heavy instant smash that quickly hit #4 on Billboard’s Dance/Electronic Digital Song Sales chart. Since then, she has released multiple singles that have topped the charts including, “Facts” featuring YG & BIA and “Chase the Summer” featuring Jeremih. Jeffries partnered with Gen-Z style destination, superdown.com via Revolve to create the first celebrity capsule collection. Merging fashion with music, the capsule collection is available to shop via in-video links directly within the “Chase the Summer” music video, making it the first shoppable experience through music videos on YouTube.com. Furthermore, Jeffries has exciting plans for 2020, as she’ll be releasing her new single “Come Back to Me” featuring Shaylen, on May 13th.
In addition to producing, Jeffries has spent much of the past few years DJ-ing a series of different events, including her 20+ date residency with Hakkasan group in Las Vegas. “The live set is a full experience, with a lot of visual stimulation in the lights and video elements,” says Jeffries.
Hailing from Dallas, TX, vocalist and songwriter Shaylen is both equal parts veteran and neophyte to the music industry. A former pop group member turned solo star, Shaylen became classically trained in piano and took master classes at the world renowned Septien Entertainment Group (home to other superstars like Selena Gomez and Demi Lovato); and after a short-lived stunt in a successful global touring group Shaylen found herself moving to Los Angeles to re-start her music career. While working multiple jobs and pushing out her music on social media, she began to create a sizable buzz in the industry. But it was through her songwriting and producing skills that she found her true identity, inking a publishing contract and collaborating with up and coming EDM producers on Soundcloud. Fast forward to a major deal with Republic Records and the release of several breakout singles, this is the story of a rising powerhouse who is back…for the very first time.
