I need a Cha Cha beat, boy…and a Hoody/Heize/Suran collaboration.

It’s been almost a year since Hoody dropped the still amazing On & On and it looks like she’s getting ready to give us more as she has just dropped a new single and it is perfect for fall.

Over a Cha Cha Malone production that is unexpectedly jazzy and lowkey but still has that good upbeat energy pulsing throughout it, the singer lays down her smooth vocals and tells her lover just how special he is to her.

The thing about Hoody’s voice is that it is deceptively strong.  Some people often make the mistake of thinking people who deliver sweetheart vocals lack power and the ability to really belt out; on the contrary, many of them just gravitate towards a style that allows them to play up their adlibs in a way that maintains a mellow vibe over the track.  This is what Hoody does on this track.  She is really into it in section, especially with the overlapping vocals and background harmonies, but the songs never escalates in a way that outpaces the production because the initial vocals come on so under the radar.

The lyrics are nice, but there are a lot of platitudes in here that makes it more like flowery poetry than the expression of genuine emotion.  What saves it is the imagery that she gives, the being weightless, not under her own control feeling that does accompany love when it’s strong.  Couple that with the floating/water imagery and you get something that manages to still be interesting despite not feeling personal.

We’re in a happy place when we have pop!gasa

Lyrics:
When I’m with you
This place is like a blue Milky Way
That shines more than the sea
After we get on a boat like getting on a spaceship
(As we endlessly go out)
We’re alone in the big ocean
We can whisper sweet love to each other

As I look at the water with dazzling stars floating
(As I look at that light)
Like your mysterious and wandering heart
I want to swim in a deep river

Even if we only walk hand-in-hand
My heart is overwhelmed, feels like it’ll explode
After we get on a boat like getting on a spaceship
(As we endlessly go out)
We’re alone in the big ocean
We can whisper sweet love to each other

As I look at the water with dazzling stars floating
(As I look at that light)
Like your mysterious and wandering heart
I want to swim in a deep river

If you want me to be with you tonight
Feel the sunshine in the sea
If you want me to be with you tonight
Feel the sunshine in the sea

I always get afraid when I’m happy
Cuz I don’t know if these precious moments will last forever
I wanna engrave them deeply in my heart

As I look at the water with dazzling stars floating
(As I look at that light)
Like your mysterious and wandering heart
I want to swim in a deep river

If you want me to be with you tonight
Feel the sunshine in the sea
If you want me to be with you tonight
Feel the sunshine in the sea
