Curtis Waters has released a new single, 'The Feelings Tend To Stay The Same'

Curtis Waters has released a new single, 'The Feelings Tend To Stay The Same' - the follow-up to his hit, 'Stunnin' (Ft. Harm Franklin)'.

“My songs reflect how I feel that day,” he says. “I try not to box myself in. I listen to so much music and I soak so many different influences in, so I’m a product of everything I’m into. I’m into so much random stuff and I want to bring it all into the Curtis Waters universe.”

His latest drop sees him touch on his own mental health struggles, and dealing with his bi-polar disorder.

"I wrote this song about a close friend of mine that I was seeing in college," he explains. "I wrote it after I dropped out of college because of my own health issues. I stopped talking to everybody and couldn’t message her anymore, but I wanted to say thank you, and sorry. I knew I was getting sick and I secretly knew I was dropping out of college soon.

"The last night we saw each other I planned a really special date. I wrote her a letter; I bought her flowers and chocolates and I took her to a movie. It was supposed to be really romantic but I was on a lot of medication for my bi-polar and they made me really sick so I couldn’t even watch the movie, I just kept throwing up in the bathroom all night.

"I was nervous she would be mad or disappointed, but instead she stood outside and waited and wasn’t disgusted at all. She was really kind and supportive. It meant a lot. I felt really cared for. And then we never saw each other again.

"After I dropped out, most days I would reminisce about what happened and the mistakes I made. I hope she’s doing good, and even though things may have ended bad between us. The feelings don’t ever go away. The song is a bittersweet thank you/apology letter that I wish I could say to her face. I wrote it hoping she would be curious enough to search me up and listen to my song about her and understand what happened and how I felt about the situation.”
