The self-written and co-produced single tells the story of a past romantic relationship that left her in a constant state of uncertainty, oozing the emotional turmoil you would find in a coming-of-age movie. Her spellbinding vocals combined with the upbeat electric guitar and drum-lead chorus take listeners to the era of boy bands and Britney, and the transcendent track is just the beginning of Chelsea’s clear path to pop domination.
The accompanying visualizer is viewers’ ticket into Chelsea’s Y2K wonderland, the scene set with a Mean Girls inspired bedroom filled with pillow fights and troll dolls. We meet her boyfriend, who is incapable of much other than existing as his mouth is quite literally sewn shut. The irony of Chelsea asking him to tell her how he really feels is simply, for a lack of better words – so fetch.
“‘Open Your Mouth’ is a song I wrote about a guy I was dating who would vanish every two weeks, but then he’d come back and make me feel loved,” says Chelsea on the man who helped bring her newest single to fruition. “I could never read his intentions. It was a sad and confusing situation, so I turned it into something positive that makes me want to jam out like I’m at the Freaky Friday high school talent show.”
“Open Your Mouth” follows the release of her last single “Hotel Bed” featuring 5x GRAMMY-Award Nominee Swae Lee. The single has accumulated over 3 million streams across DSPs and has been championed by media tastemakers landing placements on various editorial DSPs including Spotify’s New Music Friday where it was the 12th most added New Music Friday song globally. Praised by Rolling Stone, Lyrical Lemonade, NYLON, EUPHORIA and more, the pop prowess is on an unstoppable path to stardom.
“Hotel Bed” and “Open Your Mouth” provide listeners a glimpse into Chelsea’s lyrical and production versatility, which fans can expect to see more of on the forthcoming debut EP as she continues to capture the hearts of pop lovers across the world.
