An author named Ally Carter had this to say about secrets, “I thought about how there are two types of secrets: the kind you want to keep in and the kind you don’t dare to let out. The first type of secret can be good. For instance, Miley Stewart did not want to tell anyone that she was Hannah Montana in an effort to maintain a normal life. However, the latter has the potential to wreak havoc on the people involved. Jules Brave sings about a forbidden relationship in her song “She Can’t Know (No).”
The secret that Brave is keeping has to do with her dating a best friend’s ex. She reflects on the pressure of keeping the secret using a fast-paced dance beat. The track sounds like it could be played in a nightclub on a Saturday night. Moreover, the harmonies on the chorus make the song even more danceable. At the start of the chorus, Brave tries to justify her actions by saying “it’s not like I went for him on purpose.” The main part of the chorus is Brave singing, “she can’t know.” She is trying to downplay the severity of the situation. At the same time, she does not want to ruin a friendship.
When Jules Brave first entered the music industry, she wanted to be a songwriter. After she captured the attention of big names in music, she decided to sing her own songs. This was definitely the right decision as she acquired more than one million Spotify streams on her debut single. Brave moved from New York City to Los Angeles to pursue music. Her musical style is all over the map, so there is something for everyone!
