I recently deleted Spotify. This song was being pushed on me hard in my final days on the platform and I never got around to listening to it until just now I watched the music video on YouTube.
My first (very quick) take: Rodrigo (like AOC) has a really ample mouth. Big teeth, big lips, expressive. It makes her super fun to watch right now because we're all masked up all the time and starved for the bottom half of other people's faces.
TSwift is leading this mini-renaissance in pop where songwriters are shirking the verse-chorus-verse-chorus-bridge-chorus convention. Its wonderful. Drivers License FTW. Bump it. The one missed reference here is Ingrid Andress.
Interesting, why did you delete your Spotify? I think it's a great platform, but I also know it is one of the ones where you have to put in good work to get a good return. I actually wrote about how I whipped my Spotify account into shape: http://aramzs.github.io/fun/2020/11/09/spotify-asks-listeners-to-hack-its-algorithm.html
I didn’t realize this tune had garnered so much attention.
P.s. ReadUpers check your DL expiration date. I just realized I Need to renew Very Soon today!
I'm always super fascinated with how Spotify's hand-managed playlists contribute to song virality.
