In a month where it's hard to avoid love, it can be a time for introspection and reflection. London-based R&B singer-songwriter Danni Tesfay has us covered with her new track "Believe in Love". This highly relatable body of work serves as a path for Tesfay to explore her own emotions while providing support for anyone struggling with falling in love and letting go.

F Word caught up with Danni Tesfay to discuss the timeless single, along with some sound advice along the way.

Maisie Daniels: Hey Danni, welcome to F Word Magazine! Your new single titled Believe in Love is out now, can you talk us through the meaning behind the song?

Danni Tesfay: So believing in love is exactly what it sounds like, learning to believe in love - Getting stung with a string of bad relationships, situationships and heartbreak is something I am sure everyone can relate to. Believe in love it's about the hesitation that comes with the aftermath, finding someone and still choosing to love despite being hurt in the past.

MD: Did creating the song help with your relationship?

DT: The song is a personal reflection on my own experiences, and I often choose to express it in the third person. I use my music as a channel for my emotions and experiences, transforming them into a representation of a partner. Essentially, my music serves as a diary or a letter to myself. While it might not have directly impacted a romantic relationship, it played a significant role in prompting introspection. Through this process, I was able to confront and deal with my own insecurities related to love.

MD: What’s your best advice for someone who is struggling to let go when falling in love?

DT: If you're finding it tough to let go when you're falling in love, I would be to take things one step at a time. It's okay to feel attached, but try not to lose sight of yourself in the process. Keep up with your own interests and give yourself the space to grow as an individual. Communication is key too—share your feelings with your partner and make sure you're on the same page. Don't forget to lean on friends or family for support, and most importantly, don't be too hard on yourself. Finding the right balance is a journey, so take it easy and enjoy the ride.

MD: What are you hoping people will take from this song?

DT: I hope that people find comfort in the idea that, despite past heartbreaks or uncertainties, choosing to believe in love and taking that leap of faith is still a brave thing to do. Sometimes we have to kiss a couple of frogs to get our prince charming.

MD: Let’s do a quick-fire round. Finish the sentence:

MD: I believe in…

DT: love of course

MD: I don’t believe in…

DT: pickles in burgers

MD: Believe it or not I…

DT: am obsessed with Modern family

MD: I believe my heart…

DT: has no common sense

MD:I believe my head…

DT: has a little person living inside it

MD: What advice do you have for yourself for tomorrow?

DT: For tomorrow, my advice to myself would be: Keep pushing forward, girl! The breakthrough you're seeking lies just beyond that fear, so don't hesitate to confront it. Embrace the process, fall in love with every step, and never lose sight of the mission you're on.

MD: It wouldn’t be an F Word interview without asking what's your favourite F-word?

DT: Fabulous!
