Speaking more on the meaning behind ‘I Can’t Say No’ Dylan says:
‘I Can’t Say No (when you go down)’ is a electro-pop, club oriented song. It’s a song I wrote about a dancer I met at a strip-club when I was fresh from a break-up and stepping a little on the wild side, embracing impulsive, sometimes self-destructive behaviour. The song is referencing the start of my intimate relationship with this girl.
The track is about sensing danger, and seeing several red flags, yet being helplessly seduced. It’s about weakness in the face of temptation, even though one should not be better. The music video will feature the dancer, the song was written about. The video was filmed in Mexico, since the Moscow-born dancer is currently living in Cancun.”
