EXCLUSIVE: Ashley Brinton Spills On Accidentally Eating Rihanna’s Oreos + More!


Popmaniacs — we have huge news. We recently got to chat exclusively with singer/songwriter Ashley Brinton and it was everything! The babe told us all about her new music and we’re sharing everything with you. Here’s what she dished to us.

Popmania: You have a new single, “Don’t Wanna Lose Your Love,” coming out this spring — tell us about that!

AB: It’s so exciting! The song is pop with a twist. I hope it makes you want to get up and dance.

Popmania: What are you most excited for fans to hear in the new song?
AB: It tells a story about a boy who I am in love with and he cheats with my best friend. The lyrics reveal that everything he likes about her, is really me. I think a lot of teenage girls can relate to this situation.

Popmania: Do you have a favorite memory from recording the song?
AB: I recorded this song in NYC at Jungle City Studios. They have an amazing balcony which is Alicia Keys’ private balcony and I was allowed to go up there. The view from there is magical. Of course, I love Alicia Keys. She’s amazing. It was inspiring to see what she sees while recording.

Popmania: Is there a fun fact about “Don’t Wanna Lose Your Love” that fans would be surprised to find out?
AB: We had such a fun time recording it in New York. I love cookies and while I was in the studio I accidentally ate Rihanna’s Oreos.  I thought someone brought them for me. I had them quickly replaced with new Oreos. I wouldn’t want to meet Rihanna for the first time and have her hate me because she thinks I stole her Oreos.

Popmania: If you could re-record “Don’t Wanna Lose Your Love” to be a collab with any artist, who would you chose to collab with and why?
AB: I have a special person who will be featured on my song. It’s a cool surprise and I can’t wait for you guys to hear. For future projects, I would love to work with The Weeknd!

Popmania: You have a new EP coming out later this year! Any hints or spoilers you can give us about your new music?
AB: The EP offers a diverse catalog of music so I can get a feel for what my fans really want to see from me. The message is consistent as I want to be an inspiration. I really want to connect with my fans! They mean the world to me!
