Exclusive Interview: Sabina Beyli Chats About ‘Replace You’

Sabina Beyli, an upcoming star and singer, recently dropped her latest single ‘Replace You’ and fans already can’t get enough of the track. With countless plays on streaming platforms and an impressive following on social media, Beyli continues to attract new fans as the intense anticipation for her debut EP increases. It seems as though this young star is ready to take the world by storm whether people are ready for it or not.

In an exclusive interview with CelebMix, the ‘Replace You’ singer opened up about her recent singles, touring aspirations and more.

You continue to surprise your fans with new music and have just released ‘Replace You.’ What is the track about and is it different or similar to other tracks you have released in the past? 

‘Replace You’ is a very personal song for me. It is so much more different than the songs I’ve put out earlier because back then I was very young and didn’t really connect with the music I was making,  but now that I’ve grown up a little, I feel connected to every single song from the EP, especially ‘Replace You.’ It’s raw and is about me trying to replace someone who was once very important to me. Even though I’m only 16, I went through some things that disappointed me and broke me in some way. I tried my best to transfer all of those emotions into this song and I couldn’t be happier with the outcome! 

What can you tell us about your previous single ‘Close’ and the inspiration behind that one? 

‘Close’ is about prioritizing someone important to you and at the same time feeling a little frightened to open up to someone. When you’re young and inexperienced, everything seems risky, and you’re hesitant to trust somebody – “When it feel like I push you away, hope you know I want you to stay…that’s me acting young and afraid.” ‘Close’ is also about knowing your worth and your abilities. It’s a very chill song and has a nice vibe to it!

Speaking of inspiration, what other artists or bands have inspired you or are currently inspiring you? 

BTS, Justin Bieber, Ariana Grande and Beyoncé are my biggest inspirations. I love the messages they put out through their songs and how genuine they are. BTS started from nothing and now are the kings of pop [and] same goes to Justin. They’re all so humble and authentic and have incredible music!

Your highly anticipated EP, Good Intentions, is coming out in the near future! What was the process of creating that EP like and what can fans expect to hear on that body of work? 

Making this EP with my producers has been one of the best experiences I’ve ever had! We made the mini album in only a week and I was fascinated by how many ideas I had inside of me that were waiting to be put into these songs. This EP is very personal to me and I am sure many will relate to it! Every single track is different and has an interesting sound to it and I hope my fans love it as much as I loved making it.

If you could share one interesting fact about yourself with listeners who just discovered your music, what would it be and why? 

One day I want to gather as many of my fans as possible, and take them on a beautiful vacation with me. I know that sounds crazy,  but to be honest, I am a crazy girl with tons of crazy ideas so I thought I would love to spend some time with my fans in a cool destination! 

Is there anyone you would like to tour with in 2020? Why? 

Honestly, there are so many artists that I could only dream of touring with: BTS, Camilla Cabello, Shawn Mendes, Ariana Grande, Justin Bieber, NCT, Rihanna, Post Malone and many more! These artists are the reason I do what I do, and sharing a stage with any of them would be an honor. 

What is one of your goals for the rest of this year? 

My goal is to release the EP with at least 1/2 music videos and then work on many new projects! There’s so much coming and I genuinely can’t wait to share it with the world!
