The track is taken from Chinouriri’s debut album, What A Devastating Turn of Events, released 3 May via Parlaphone/Atlas Artists. Chinouriri spoke about Never Need Me in a recent interview with Official Charts: “I didn’t even like it at first! I didn’t even send it to my label, but they loved it. It was a little different at first…we pitched it up, I was really inspired by the Kings of Leon, Sex on Fire. Everyone at my label thought it was the song, I finished it, I did exactly what I wanted with it.

“I think each song embodies a nostalgic feeling for me; everyone in school listening to Sex on Fire and the teachers being like “excuse me?!” When we handed it in…it was really fun. Maybe I was wrong! I can admit that.”

In a press release announcing the album the singer reflected, “It’s finally here. The moment most musicians dream of when they’re a child. I can’t believe it’s real in a way, but I’m proud of it. What A Devastating Turn Of Events should feel like discovering a personal journey of all the hardship and struggles that have ultimately made me the person I am today.”

“I was lost when I first made this album, when I felt so lost within myself but also in London,” she added. “I was on a search to find myself and I can say I’ve managed to do that by the end of this process and have found a love for myself that I never thought was possible. I feel fortunate enough to be able to document that process and have it in physical form and sound. Hopefully it’ll help other people realise that it takes tough times, self accountability, betrayal and uncomfortable moments to finally get to a point of true self love. I’m more than ready for the next chapter.”
