One evening, while I was browsing through your submissions for this year’s Break Up Playlist, I came across pure gold.
Let me start by saying that making it onto my personal list is no easy feat. Most “Break Up” songs are either cliche and extremely corny.
If you want to get a feel for what sort of music I and my audience find appealing, you can check out the current playlist placeholders below.
Keep in mind that this list is comprised of top songs, the oldest being “Heartless” by Kanye West, which dates over a decade ago.
“Objects in the Mirror” Mac Miller
“IFHY” Tyler, The Creator
“My Favorite Part”” Mac Miller
“Happier” Ed Sheeran
“Heartless” Kanye West
“Call Out My Name” The Weeknd
“I Fall Apart” Post Malone
A commonality between the top contenders is that they each paint poignant yet tragic depictions of love, separation, loneliness, and heartbreak.
Beyond relatability, each one tells a story.
So without further ado,
Let’s talk about why a song from an artist you’ve likely never heard of, caught my attention and got me playing it on repeat.
But first, let’s give Eaden’s “Letter To Your Ex” a listen below:
I mean seriously.
You can’t deny the relatability and strikingly catchy chorus of this song.
I found myself nodding my head, thinking of all my exes I would love to send this song to.
The wordplay and flow of this song are top-tier.
I mean let’s just dissect one bar.
Got the energy
Seep into all your memories
Topic of all your reveries
Living like I’m in Beverly Hills
You see, I live rent-free
I’m not going to lie, I didn’t even know what the word enthalpy meant but after verifying, it looks like a physics concept relating to internal energy, far beyond me.
My interpretation of this bar is that your vibe and energy will be forever present throughout your ex, their mind, and their dreams.
While you are living your best life, they will be restless; with you living in their mind rent-free.
Something like that. The song only gets better and will likely take a few listens to get a grasp on everything he is saying.
The song is riddled with clever wordplay and is undoubtedly catchy.
Eaden Singh, professionally known as “Eaden”, seems to be fairly new to the music scene, having only 2 released singles at this time. While the Canadian-born artist is just getting started, it seems a bright future lies ahead of him.
