Directed by Alex Nicholson, the split-screen visual highlights the conversational nature of the track, featuring mirroring performances from Maisie and JP, captured in Margate, UK, and Los Angeles, CA respectively.
A conversational love song, highlighting the contrasting feelings and vulnerabilities experienced during a relationship, “Maybe Don’t” is an instantly memorable and timeless track, showcasing the eloquence of both artists. Often lauded as modern-day storytellers, Maisie and JP wrote the song in London prior to lockdown, alongside GRAMMY-winning writer and producer, Joe Rubel (Ed Sheeran, L Devine).
Already proving a poignant collaboration, “Maybe Don’t” has garnered over 1.5 million global streams in its first week of release and is seeing early support from both BBC Radio 1 and 2 in the UK. Furthermore, BILLBOARD included “Maybe Don’t” in their 10 Cool New Pop Songs round-up declaring, “it’s going to be a blast to sing in karaoke rooms someday.”
Currently hard at work on her widely anticipated debut album, Peters has kept her fans entertained over the past few months. She recently collaborated with bourgeoning indie-pop artist, Cavetown, for a special rework of her single, “Sad Girl Summer,” and also unveiled an Apple Music “At home with Maisie Peters Session,” and performed for renowned London-based YouTube channel, Mahogany. In July, Peters caught the attention of her idol Taylor Swift for the second time, with the global superstar Tweeting to her 87 million followers that her “ears [had] been blessed” after hearing Peters’ rendition of Folklore track, “Betty.”
Peters also continues to run her rapidly-growing virtual book club (@mpbookclub), each month exploring different themes, such as unconventional love, self-acceptance and science, including Instagram Live Q+A’s with an array of the most exciting names in the literary worlds, including Dr Camilla Pang (“Explaining Humans”), Kiley Reid (“Such a Fun Age”) and Sophie Williams.
