"Stop I Don't Love You Anymore" is the second single from Sharleen Spiteri's first solo album Melody. It was slated for a September 29, 2008 release, but then for unknown reasons it was pushed back and finally got released on October 6, 2008 as a digital download only single. This song failed to chart inside the top 100 UK singles, peaking only at #107.
Speaking in August 2008 to noted UK soul/R&B writer Pete Lewis of the award-winning 'Blues & Soul', Spiteri explained how the song and track first came about: "It was funny, because my daughter inspired me to write that title! She loves music, and we were upstairs singing away when she suddenly started going 'Stop, baby - I don't love you!'! And I was like 'That's IT! Stop, I don't love you anymore!'! You know, as a five-year-old she said in such a simple way exactly what I'd been trying to get across, but hadn't quite managed to come up with. And for the track's actual production, I was inspired by how - with a band like The Supremes - they'd have that big, vast orchestration and then put those beautiful, sweet vocals on top of it."
The music video premiered on Spiteri's YouTube channel on 1 September 2008.
It begins with the title of the single appearing on a TV, then you see that a woman is watching the TV, as the camera pulls close to the TV Spiteri is seen singing. While she is singing, clips of couples are shown. While singing the word Stop, the word also goes across the screen followed by the words I Don't Love You Anymore. This repeats itself through the end of the video.
