Pop music taught us that love is a drug, and that it can also be the greatest thing…but rising star Ava Max is closing out 2019 by offering some rather clever new insight on the subject.
Indeed, with her utterly beguiling new single “On Somebody,” she turns to physics to illuminate the concept of one’s grasp, or lack thereof, on any given relationship.
“I see you moving side to side, side, side, side, side
Two hands on you that aren’t mine, mine, mine, mine, mine
You never know how much you’re on somebody ’til they’re on somebody else”
And it’s really quite true, if you think about it. What could possibly be more enlightening as to the soundness of one’s relationship, than calculating just how much of the other person is on you, and how much on someone else? The track itself is all slow, sultry grooves, and graced with a particularly soulful vocal performance by Ms. Max – who has earned recent praise from the likes of Vogue, Vanity Fair, and, of course, BlackBook.
She’ll also be appearing on this year’s edition of New Year’s Rockin’ Eve – though we really do hope you’ll be out somewhere having too much fun to be watching television.
