the 1 // Blackbear
Blackbear has a way of taking sad, heartbreaking songs and turning them into absolute bangers. He did just that in his new single, “the 1,” where he masks the hurt in the lyrics with strong club beats and catchy hooks.
The chorus of “the 1” is, as I said, extremely catchy, and definitely something you’ll be screaming at the top of your lungs after a tough breakup. The melody works perfectly with the EDM style of the song, and it all flows together so perfectly. This single is a huge success for Blackbear, and a perfect way to end the summer (and summer romances).
“the 1” also came with a music video, which you can watch here: https://youtu.be/DzAF9ctslI8. I don’t know about you, but I’m keeping my fingers crossed that Blackbear announces a tour soon, because this single will be killer live.
This may be my favorite song to end the summer, so make sure you check it out and form your own opinion on “the 1”!
