‘Lovesong’ by Beabadoobee
Beabadoobee’s sophomore album, “Beatopia,” showcased a variety of new sounds and styles. However, Lovesong, a song that returns to her bedroom pop roots, stood out to me as an instant favorite. Lovesong is not your typical romantic ode, despite its gentle production. Beabadoobee focuses heavily on the complexities in her relationship, such as her tendency to connect her problems to her partner: “When I’ve been a mess it’s not your fault but I keep forgetting, it’s what we do.” So much of the media today creates unreasonable romantic expectations. Beabadoobee’s vulnerable and realistic portrayal reminds listeners that growth is a normal and necessary part of love.
