In a statement, Chanel reflects on the track, saying, "‘Carelessly Doomed' is an intimate conversation to myself about owning my overthinking and perfectionist tendencies (which I do a lot!) It's me consciously trying to let things go and accept the process - even if it scares me. I’m in my ‘Que Sera’ era. The feature with Kota The Friend happened really organically. I opened for him on tour at the end of 2022, and we got along super well. Shortly after, I started teasing 'Carelessly Doomed,' and he heard a snippet and immediately DM’d me asking for the instrumental. The rest is history!”

Chanel's dynamic 2023 included an ARIA nomination for Best Soul/R&B release and performances alongside IDK, Sudan Archives, and Masego. 'Carelessly Doomed' continues her musical journey, inviting listeners into her 'Que Sera' era with its captivating melodies and introspective lyricism.
