Dove Cameron is entering a new phase. My path getting to this point has been incredibly varied and definitely long. So now, to feel myself so much in these first few releases is so exciting to me. It feels surreal.

Dove Cameron got her start on Disney, starring in the sitcom 'Liv and Maddie'. Dove Cameron knows people have never been sure what to make of her. While she thrived on the platform, her life and celebrity felt separate from the entertainment engine for which she was working. What seemed to affect her more was public perception, especially as she was in the midst of figuring out her next move. Cameron admits that her own personal preferences and image never helped the image placed on her. As she came close to the end of her time with the company, Cameron realized she craved creativity, something that made her feel more like a participant, more than a watcher within the industry.
Cameron has been teasing music for six years, as she acknowledges in the note. She attributed the delay to years of compromising and never quite getting the music right, but Cameron's pair of singles are proof of the confidence she conveys in her letter.

Dove Cameron was around 12 years old when she realized she didn't really like a lot of popular love songs. I really remember strongly feeling like I'm never going to be that girl. I was like, 'What the fuck is wrong with me? It doesn't come as a surprise, then, that the singer-actress prefers writing about the raw and occasionally ugly side of being in love. When Cameron launched her music career last year, she did so with the one-two punch of " Bloodshot " and " Waste ," two decidedly un-sappy relationship songs. The same goes for her newest release, the moody and atmospheric "Remember Me," which arrived on Friday April 10 alongside a fittingly cinematic lyric video.
