Review: "I Already Told My Mama What You Did" - Evalina

Most of us have gone through tough breakups. We tell people who we are close to about what happened and what the other person did that hurt us. “I Already Told My Mama What You Did” by Evalina is a song we can relate to when the person we used to love betrayed us. The sentiment is relatable: there are no second chances since the damage has been done even though we’re willing to forgive. There’s no point in excuses because the relationship is over, and everyone knows. Once the secret is out, it would be impossible to break through the cement wall of distrust and win another chance back.

Immediately at the beginning of the song, there are beautiful guitar strums that introduce Evalina's raw and powerful vocals, capturing the emotion of her lyrics. Bearing a tough breakup can make you go a bit crazy but realizing afterwards that you’re willing to forgive is part of a learning experience. The passion Evalina brings to this track is sensational, subtly contrasted with her upbeat, pop soundscape. The scenario in this breakup anthem is tricky: since she can’t make up with them because she's already spilled her feelings to her mama and about what they did; it wouldn't be ideal to get back together. The sternness of the lyrics continues to the last lines of the song, “No we can’t make up / Cause I already told my mama what you did” brings the dedication of not going back on your words which Evalina did not.

Evalina is a singer/songwriter from the UK. She has worked with some established names in the music business that makes her an exciting name in British pop music. Her debut single, “Side Effects” was released in July 2022 and gained reviews from Pop Justice, Earmilk, Celeb Mix, Pop Musik, and many more. Her debut single was on BBC Introducing’s Track Of The Week which was an exciting accomplishment! She also released an acoustic version of the song which debuted at her sold out show for Sofar Sounds. Evalina’s latest single called, “Vivid” was personally chosen by Becky Hill to launch the groundbreaking female led label Lady Of The House as their debut release and to perform the song at W Hotel Amsterdam. “Vivid” was named Track Of The Day on BBC Introducing which received a mention on BBC Radio 1, press coverage from Music Week, Skiddle, Resident Advsior, DJ Mag, Mix Mag, and was put on Spotify’s New Music Friday and New Dance Revolution. Evalina is an artist you definitely don’t want to miss!
