Caggie Reimagines '90s Pop On Breathy 'I Wish You Knew': Exclusive

Nat Michele


After establishing herself as a television star on popular U.K. shows like Made In ChelseaCaggie is now ready to fulfill her dreams of dominating the pop realm. Her new single "I Wish You Knew," which is exclusively premiering on Billboard today (July 2), will surely take her down the right path.

The song is a dreamy exploration of those first-time butterflies you experience in a new relationship, and calls back to the style of breathy '90s singers like Natalie Imbruglia and Mandy Moore. 

"I'm a little messed up without you next to me/ A little choked up, yeah I can hardly breathe/ A little fucked up 'cause you're my ecstasy," Caggie muses on the chorus atop a soaring melody.

"'I Wish You Knew' is about the early stages of dating someone when everything is both electrifying and terrifying," Caggie tells Billboard, "When you don't really know where you stand with each other. You are trying to present yourself in the best way possible and hide the fact that you are going completely insane hanging off their every word.

"That they have the ability to make or break your day with a simple 'Hello, how are you?' It's the several stages of madness you go through when they don't reply to a text, when they say that can't make that date you suggested," she continues. "It's about putting yourself out there in the most vulnerable way. It's about risking rejection and saying, 'I'm really into you and I want you to know that.'"

"I Wish You Knew," which follows her debut single "Here We Are Again," will officially be released on July 3 via AWAL. Caggie is planning to announce a new EP along with new tour dates after summer's end. Sway to her single below.
