Sweater weather is in full swing and with that also comes cuffing season. While there’s certainly nothing wrong with following your heart, it’s easy to lose sight of your needs when you’re all caught up getting cozy with someone else. Ladies, Ayelle has a message for you – put yourself first because you can have it all if you set your mind to it. Today, we’re premiering the Swedish-Iranian singer’s new single “Too Busy” and trust us, it’s about to turn your whole week around. The Mucky and J83-produced track is an instant eargasm, but behind all that sensual energy Ayelle is drawing attention to a roadblock that so many women today face when it comes to commitment.

“I wrote this song about the shift in power dynamics that take place when women prioritize their careers and get too busy to wait for someone to make up their mind,” she said in an email to Highsnobiety. “Dating is exhausting and full of commitment-phobia, no one really has time for that but when we stop playing along and do our own thing it can either be a wake-up call or a quick exit.”

In Ayelle’s own words, “don’t play yourself” and stream this silky song immediately below. If you want more, dive into her Slow Clap EP.
