The concept of the song, according to the 18-year-old, is about when someone says they love you but doesn’t mean it, which she believes many people can relate to.

“I believe everyone has gone through something similar,” she explained. “Everyone has been harmed in some way or another.”

Fingers Crossed is inspired by a real-life experience that Spencer-Smith has had, as she says she writes all of her songs.

“I feel like creating music is almost like journaling your emotions,” she explained. “I always want everything to be true to the story and true to who I am.”

Spencer-Smith is currently in Los Angeles and filming a music video for her new single this weekend.

She also hopes to release a new album and begin touring shortly.
