[Exclusive] Pop star Novul's new track 'Boys Like You' is inspired by bad boys
Chatting with MEAWW, Novul lets fans in on her single 'Boys Like You' which was released on October 5th last week and why she calls herself Novul and her love for doughnuts!
With past recognition from Billboard and MTV Hits, singer Novul is back and ready to open up the next chapter of her book with new singles and a new pop-alternative driven sound. She didn't really come from what you would call a family of musicians - from Saskatchewan, Canada, she grew up in a small town with a population of 495 people and a family of grain farmers. Her dreams were big and her ethic was tough and she knew she would make it.
Determined to get into studios and further develop her sound, Novul moved straight to LA following her high school graduation. From there, she began working with Grammy Producer and music artist Poet Name Life of the Black Eyed Peas and became the artist she is today. Chatting with MEAWW, she lets fans in on her single 'Boys Like You' which was released on October 5th last week, why she calls herself Novul and her love for doughnuts!
Tell us about your single 'Boys like You.' Where did you find your inspiration for this track?
Well, every single I write is from experiences of my own or something I’m going through. Basically, I would always question myself “why do I go for these types of bad boys?” However, they’re my type of muse. I feel a lot of people will relate to this single and that’s what I’m most excited to see—the feedback and the connection with my fans. It’s nice knowing I’m not alone in having these types of feelings.
Tell us about the sound for the single. Is this an experimentation or in tune with your sound so far?
This single is definitely groovy and has some pop feel to it! I’m always experimenting with my sounds, but I have found my structure in sounds for sure.
Why do you call yourself Novul? What’s your story?
I actually got my artist name from Black Eyed Peas and Poet Name Life. I was in the studio with him, and they thought I was quite the story! I’m from a small town of 500 people, and I had all these song lyric books so they kept calling me 'Novul.' Also, my last name is Novlan so I thought it was pretty epic. Since everyone kept calling me Novul, I was like damn, I think this is going to be my artist name!
If you weren’t a musician, what do you see yourself doing?
If I wasn’t a musician, I would defiantly be working with children. I love kids!
How far do you think you’ve evolved as an artist since 'Give me Twenty'?
I think every single I release, I evolve. I have more experiences and I’m building my team more and more. I’m just growing as a woman and mastering my craft.
Three things everyone needs to know about Novul. Go!
I Love Donuts!!
I have an apple with peanut butter every morning.
I wouldn’t just release something to release something. I put my heart and creativity into everything.
Any upcoming projects you’d like to talk about?
I will be dropping another single with a music video, not long after 'Boys Like You'! So get ready.
