After giving this one a few proper listens to make the list this week, I am very tempted to actually make it my top track of the sweet. There’s some subtle brilliance here that doesn’t come through in the first listen (at least it didn’t to me).
I happened to first hear this song via their music video and it’s etched into my brain on each listen. It’s well worth a watch (at least until the kinda awkward creepy end). Just totally cute and endearing and relatable for anyone who’s ever gone to sing karaoke. Track is also straight up rocking. Great falsetto’s.
Struggled with where to place this one. On one hand, it’s hook & chorus have been stuck in my head for dayyys. On the other hand, it doesn’t have verses that stick with me (which is usually what I gravitate towards in hip hop).
Been a back and forth battle between the original (this) and the iloilo remix that I actually heard before the original. Love em both, but I do think the original wins out by a hair, with it’s glorious 80s tron-vibes and booming sounds. Also love Wrabel’s vocals (who actually sounds a hell of a lot like Sam Smith here).
