In 2020, there are very few things that surprise me, but hearing that Ellie Goulding (who hasn't dropped an album in nearly 5 years) was on a song with blackbear, was one of them. Especially after hearing the first 30 seconds of the song, and wondering how blackbear was going to fit in as an artist best known for his sad pop style.
However, I was pleasantly surprised. Both artists pushed their boundaries with this upbeat, exciting song fit for the radio. Blackbear doesn't miss a beat and doesn't sound a bit out of place, and Ellie shows us that she is far from done with her career. Hopefully this is the start of a new roll out for her, and that blackbear will continue with his recent activity!
Lyrics That Stick:
"Baby, you don't gotta, you don't gotta
Worry about me"
