Happy Music Monday: Dua Lipa – Levitating

‘Levitating’ is one of the new songs from Dua Lipa’s second album Future Nostalgia (in case you haven’t checked this out, you really should!). Levitating is that kind of song that everyone needs to hear on a Monday. It’s very electric-disco, fun, energetic and bubbly. In a interview with Apple Music, Dua told about the song ”

This is about me exploring happy songs and doing something that’s not ‘dance crying.’ It’s about having fun and meeting someone and falling in love and thinking, ‘You’ve probably met me at the perfect time, let’s just go for it.’ It’s the feeling when love makes you feel like you’re levitating. It’s otherworldly. Things get quite Daft Punk-y here, but it’s playful, and the middle eight is almost like my British version of Blondie’s rapping. I felt like I needed to get my British side across as well on this record, because sometimes people don’t actually know where I’m from.”

With lyrics like ‘you can fly with me tonight’ is just magical. I truly hope that Dua will release this song as a single, because is that good! Favourite Summer song of 2020? Levitating is my number 1! What do you think? Decide it for yourself and let in the comment know what do you think of the song!

 

Happy Music Monday: Niall Horan – ‘Heartbreak Weather’

With all the news going on around with the COVID-19 virus, it’s time for something positive. And luckily, Niall Horan released last week his new album Heartbreak Weather. Niall already released some singles, ‘Nice To Meet Ya’, ‘Put a Little Love on Me’ and ‘No Judgement’ and 11 other new songs. One of these songs is the same-titled ‘Heartbreak Weather’.

Although the title of the song assumes that it will be heartbreak song, it’s quite the opposite. With lyrics like ‘”All of my life it’s been heartbreak weather / Thinkin’ to myself, it won’t get better / It can be so lonely in this city / but it feels different when you’re with me” it’s optimistic and up-beat. Exactly what we are looking for in these times.

On social media Niall already teased us with here and there with some previews of the video. It didn’t disappointed me at all! Like the song, the video is funny and goofy. It reminded me of back in the days when One Direction made video’s like ‘Best Song Ever’. Oh, the good days! It’s fun to see Niall bringing back this nostalgic vibes.

Happy Music Monday: Selena Gomez – ‘Rare’

Selena Gomez is back! It took her 4 years to write a new album, but it was worth the wait. Last week she released her new album ‘Rare’. On the new album Selena is very honest. She tells about it on her Youtube channel “Rare is out now. After 4 years of highs and lows and everything in between, I’m so happy to share it with the world. I hope you take this record that means so much to me and make it your own, that the songs resonate with you beyond the music. Love you guys. Like crazy.” 

In the single ‘Rare’ she tells honestly that she didn’t feel appreciated at all by someone. Something that many of us probably can relate to. But like Selena sings, everyone is ‘rare’ and deserved to be loved. You go girl, spread the message!

It’s an emotional heartbreak song, but like you can expect from Harry, it’s still very catchy and upbeat song.
