LA-based nu-metal artist Cinnamon Babe has dropped the debut single, “Pure O.” Fronted by model, actress, and Bronx native, Stormi Maya, the band’s lead track, per a recent press release, “…addresses Maya’s struggles with mental health; specifically Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder.”

Maya comments on her lyrical content, stating:

“‘Pure O’ is extremely personal to me. The name of the song comes from the shorthand term for ‘purely obsessional.’ It’s a term used to describe a type of OCD where people experience intrusive thoughts, but without any external signs of compulsions. I’ve had Pure O my entire life – it started when I was 6 years old. I would have thoughts that I couldn’t explain and I experienced severe distress from it. I only recently found out what my condition was called. (OCD) has caused me some of the worst mental pain of my life. I wrote this song while I was having an episode.”
