As an indie dance pop songwriter, I'm always looking for ways to improve my technique and one of the ways I do this is by looking at how other songwriters write popular music.
Now, I try not to consume myself in what everyone else is doing because I gotta do my own thing too, ya know?
But there's a lot you can learn from others if you know WHAT to look for and WHERE to look for it. 👀
For example, Ms. Vocal Goddess Ariana Grande just released a new song called "No Tears Left To Cry" and, like, all of her fans were in love 😍 (myself included LOL) 😂
However, I've also seen some people scratching their head as to why other pop artists have been calling it "innovative" and "new."
Well, I thought it would be a great time to do a video on my YouTube channel this week analyzing just WHY people LOVE this song so much!
What MAKES it different from other pop songs on the radio?
Why do people care?
I'm breaking down "No Tears Left To Cry" section by section and line by line and identifying key elements that make Ariana's track so refreshing!
xo, and Welcome to Level 2!
