when “hello” from adele came out back in 2015,
i was dealing with a lot to feel sad about.
i was in “crush” with a work wolf that would end a year later.
it was legit “hello from the other side” when we stopped speaking.
that song would become a blanket of comfort i would listen to over and over.
i like songs that come out and speak about your exact situation.
you bee like:
have you been stalking me?!?!?”
my favorite part of that song was the background vocals during the bridge.
they described my emotions at that moment.
it is literally one of my favorite songs from adele.
it would be on the soundtrack of my life.
i waited patiently because spotify told me the song was gonna be released at 7pm.
i was listening to wizkid and his album ended right at 705pm.
you know a fox gotta come fashionably late.
so when i first heard the song on spotify,
i wasn’t really captivated by it.
its her signature big balled so she is on brand.
i didn’t know what she was singing about compared to “hello”.
i did like these lyrics:
There ain’t no gold in this river
That I’ve been washin’ my hands in forever
I know there is hope in these waters
But I can’t bring myself to swim
When I am drownin’ in the silence
Baby, let me in
something about that hits the bottom of my spirit hard.
the video was giving me “hello” part 2.
she seems to like her abandoned shacks in the forest.
i felt like the video helped push the song a little,
but i wasn’t drawn to it immediately like i was with “hello” or her other songs.
it’s a “sad girl/boy” song,
we can bet shonda rhimes will be adding this to a scene on “grey’s anatomy” pretty soon.
it seems like a song that would be at the end of some breakup scene.
i’m sure once i get a full breakdown of the lyrics,
i’ll be like “CAN RELATE” and listen to it until my brain vomits.
i’m not feeling depressed over a wolf these days.
i purged the latest wolf,
out of my system so i don’t need a blanket of comfort right now.
i’ve actually been listening to a lot of drake these days.
the good news is i’m humming “go easssssssssssy on me bay-bayyyyy” so that is a good sign.
Did you like “Easy On Me”?
her new album,
will be out november 19th.
