Olivia Rodrigo Plays Heartbreak Scene Again: Her New Track Deja Vu Is A Hit

Remember Olivia Rodrigo? Yeah! She is back again with another hit track titled Deja Vu. Following the groundbreaking success of her debut single “Drivers Licence” Olivia Rodrigo has released another top song.

Remember Olivia Rodrigo? Yeah! She is back again with another hit track titled Deja Vu. Following the groundbreaking success of her debut single “Drivers Licence” on streaming platforms and music charts around the world, Olivia Rodrigo has released another top song. There are little deviations from her “Drivers License” hit to her latest hit “Deja Vu”. Many patterns in the video for Deja Vu reminisce some scenes in “Drivers License”, like driving a car at the beginning of the video and thinking about her ex. What is with Olivia Rodrigo and her ex?

First, it was Drivers Licence and all the breakup saga on the track. At a time Olivia Rodrigo admitted she had a painful breakup before the song was released. Now it is “Deja Vu,” and she is still talking about her ex. Olivia Rodrigo must have been left devastated about her previous relationship. There is no proof that she is traumatized from her previous relationship, but it is only a fact that you can only paint a vivid picture of what you have witnessed.

On the bright side, Olivia Rodrigo has been able to paint a melodious picture of heartbreak scenarios in two of her songs. Deja Vu debuted on the Billboard Hot 100 chart at number 8 while Drivers License topped the chart on its debut. With these achievements, Olivia Rodrigo became the first artist in history to have his/her first two songs debuted on the top 10.

Background

Deja Vu was released on the 1st of April, 2021 by the artist’s label, Geffen and Interscope Records. Before the released date was announced, Olivia Rodrigo had deleted all her Instagram photos which kept fans guessing her next move. On wiping out her Instagram photos, she explained to fans that it was for the release of her new single Deja Vu.

Late in March 2021, Olivia Rodrigo started posting cryptic teasers of the song on all her social media accounts. On the 29th of March, she announced the name of the track and even posted the song’s artistic cover that same day. When she announced that the song would be released on April 1, 2021, she assured fans that it was not the April fool prank.

When Olivia Rodrigo teased the announcement of Deja Vu with three flickering clips of a melting ice cream cone, floating clouds, and a car speeding along the coast, fans may have wondered if the song would be similar to “Drivers License”. In an interview, Olivia Rodrigo told MTV News that the track was not like ‘Drivers License’ and that she was both excited and anxious about her fans seeing a different side of her artistry on it.

So far, Deja Vu has been lauded by fans, artists, and music analysts, with many calling Olivia Rodrigo the next pop music heavyweight. Deja Vu debuted at number 8 on the Billboard Hot 100 music chart, and it has been streamed over a million times.

Composition and genre

Deja Vu hit track can be categorized as pop, Indie pop, alternative pop, and psychedelic pop song. The song was written by Olivia Rodrigo and Dan Nigro. While the latter was attributed to the song’s production, other important individuals like Randy Merrill and Mitch McCarthy who mastered and mixed the song respectively should also be noted.

The video

Olivia Rodrigo premiered her new single “Deja Vu” on YouTube and MTV before it was launched, and she confirmed that the music video for “Deja Vu” was filmed in Malibu. Allie Avital directed the video for the song. Talia Ryder was starred in the music video. Olivia Rodrigo’s first appearance in the video was in a car driving and eating ice cream as she approaches a building.

She looks through the window of the building and smiles at the girl inside, who is dressed in a green dress and seems to be reminiscing. Olivia Rodrigo stared at the lady for a while until she left for her convertible vintage Mercedes Benz parked outside. When she returned home, she changes into the exact green gown she saw earlier and enters a room with several TVs stacked on top of each other, all of which are playing videos of the girl she saw.

As Olivia Rodrigo rewinds the video, it shows her and not the other girl doing the same thing. When she eventually realizes that the girl is stealing all of her true memories, she smashes the televisions with a hammer. There’s just one TV left when she’s done, and it’s showing the other girl lip-syncing the words “I know you get Deja Vu.”

The ending scene is a repetition of the first scene, with the exception that the other girl is driving instead of Olivia Rodrigo. Since the premiere of the music video of Deja Vu, it has been view over 28 million times on YouTube. Watch the video of the song below.

Olivia Isabel Rodrigo is an American singer, songwriter, and actress. She was born on the 20th of February, 2003 in Temecula, California. The artist rose to prominence in acting before branching out to music where she broke a lot of music streaming records as a debutant.

After signing with Interscope and Geffen Records in 2020, she released her debut single “Drivers License,” which went to number one position on top music charts in several countries around the world, including the US.

Currently, Olivia Rodrigo is working on her debut album titled “Sour” which is due to be released in May 2021. So far she has only dropped two singles from that album, of which Déjà Vu is the latest of them. Click here to read about Olivia Rodrigo’s record-breaking debut track “Drivers License”.

Lil Nas X’s “Montero (Call Me By Your Name)” is on fire right now

I will be surprised if you don’t know Lil Nas X by now because the lad doesn’t know how to stay away from the news. Montero (Call Me by Your Name) is the latest hit of Lil Nas X.

I will be surprised if you don’t know Lil Nas X by now because the lad doesn’t know how to stay away from the news. Montero (Call Me by Your Name) is the latest hit of Lil Nas X. The song was first previewed in a Super bowl LV commercial in February 2021 and on March 26, 2021, Columbia Records released the track. Furthermore, the track is the title track for the artist’s upcoming professional debut album which is expected to be released somewhere in the middle of this year.

Lil Nas X has received critical review and controversial criticism since his leap into the musical limelight. From being a well-loved, popular, and trending teen to America’s next best upcoming artist who has left no stone unturned Lil Nas X is the news. When Lil Nas X released his first professional song “Old Town Road”, it became an instant hit, it even debuted as number 1 on the Billboard Hot 100. During that time the young rapper came out as gay, which stunned the world of music.

Everything from his music to his personal life has been top-notch. Musically, Lil Nas X has done well for himself, his first and only two professional singles so far have debuted at number 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 charts and he has won a host of top musical awards including the Grammys. On the other hand, his personal life has been received with bouts of criticism and mixed opinions.

Background of the track (Montero: Call Me By Your Name)

Montero (Call Me By Your Name) is Lil Nas X’s second professional musical single under the soon-to-be-launched Montero album. In a Twitter video on July 9, 2020, Lil Nas X played a snippet of the song (originally titled “Call Me by Your Name”), as well as in the background of some TikTok videos, including one addressed to American rapper 6ix9ine.

On February 2021, the track was used in a Logitech advert that aired during Super Bowl LV. Thereafter, its release date, and its artistic cover was revealed on Twitter in March 9, 2021. In a reinterpretation of Michelangelo’s The Creation of Adam, Spanish–Croatian artist Filip Ćustić designed the single cover, which features Lil Nas X as both Adam and God. The song’s title “Montero” was named after Lil Nas X (Montero Lamar Hill) and the subtitle was adopted from the movie “Call Me By Your Name”.

After the song’s premiere, André Aciman, the author of the novel “Call Me by Your Name”, from which the film was adapted, expressed gratitude and humility for Lil Nas X’s song of the same name. Lil Nas X later claimed that the film was one of the first queer films he had ever watched, feeling “very artsy” and encouraging him to write about the idea of calling someone by their name as lovers and wanting to hold things between you two.

Composition and Lyrics

“Montero (Call Me By Your Name)” can be categorized as a hip hop and electropop song featuring a syncopated guitar and handclaps. Lil Nas x, Denzel Baptiste, David Biral, and Omer Fedi wrote the track while Roy Lenzo and the song’s composers except for Lil Nas X collaborated to produce the hit song. On the “MONTERO (Call Me By Your Name)” hit track, Lil Nas X attempts to end pretending with his significant other and start acting like they’ve known each other for a long time.

The lyrics of the song featured Lil Nas X singing about a trip to Hawaii and includes the line “shoot a child in yo’ mouth while I’m ridin’,” which was meant to help break down the stigma surrounding gay sexual activities in music. Also, the lyrics provides a reference to the 19 weeks his first single “Old Town Road” spent atop the Billboard Hot 100 when he said “A dime and a nine, it was mine every week” on the seventh line in the second verse. Again, Lil Nas X took advantage of the lyrics to have an open discussion of the burden he feels representing the LGBT community (“A sign of the times every time that I speak”).

Lyrics

The song is made up of two verses, a pre-chorus, chorus, and post-chorus. see the lyrics below.

The video

Tanu Muino and Lil Nas X directed the music video for “Montero (Call Me by Your Name),” which was released alongside the song. Lil Nas X stars as a variety of characters in biblical and mythology-inspired scenes, which were shot over two days in February 2021. Muino who was working on Cardi B’s Up music video at the time she was contacted, expressed her excitement about the offer.

Dante’s Inferno and Hieronymus Bosch’s paintings, such as The Garden of Earthly Delights, a triptych portraying heavenly and hellish imagery, and the Last Judgment, inspired her. It was Muino’s first video as a co-director, and a portion of it was shot remotely through Zoom after she was wrongly diagnosed with COVID-19. Mathematic, a French animation studio based in Paris, created the visual effects for the music video in a seven-week process.

Features in the music video includes Lil Nas X makes out with himself in the Garden of Eden while playing both a snakeskin-wearing Eve and a humanoid serpent. Suddenly, he gets stoned to death at the Coliseum while wearing a Marie Antoinette-like wig and outfit and descends to hell on a stripper pole before performing a graphic lap dance to the devil while wearing only Calvin Klein boxers.

The artist
Montero Lamar Hill, better known by his stage name Lil Nas X, is an internet celebrity, rapper, musician, and songwriter from the United States. He was born in Lithia Springs, Georgia, on April 9, 1999. He rose to fame after the release of his first professional track “Old Town Road” in early 2019, which went viral on the social media app TikTok before climbing music charts around the world.
According to Foxnews, “Old Town Road” topped the Billboard Hot 100 chart for 19 weeks, making it the longest-running number-one song since the chart’s inception in 1958.  within that period, Lil Nas X came out as gay when his song “Old Town Road” was at the top of the Billboard Hot 100, making him the first and only artist to do so while getting a number-one single. His upcoming debut studio album, Montero, is followed by the singles “Holiday” and “Montero (Call Me by Your Name). The latter went on to top the Billboard Hot 100 charts on its debut.
Lil Nas X is a two-time Grammy award winner alongside other top musical awards.
Latest news  
Reports gotten from NME accounts that Lil Nas X’s latest hit “Montero (Call Me By Your Name)” was briefly taken down from all streaming platforms yesterday (April 13), however, it has been restored. The rapper asked fans to verify if the song was still available for streaming on Apple Music in their respective nations in a series of tweets yesterday.
Lil Nas X then retweeted replies from fans who were unable to listen to the song due to technical difficulties. In one tweet, he wrote, “Not even joking.” He went further to tell fans to stream “call me by your name” as much as they can today (April 14) because it may no longer be available tomorrow, and there is nothing he can do about it.

Maryon’s New Single Titled “Hustler” is Hotter Than Fire!

Maryon’s new single titled “Hustler” is hot, full of sauce, and real. It is a feminist pop-rock anthem about the challenges faced by ambitious female songwriters. It emphasizes their frustration in a male-dominated industry. Maryon possesses a vocal range and strength that are “cynosures of all eyes”.

Her songwriting acumen is equally top-notch which can be noticed in the track as it fiercely re-introduces her after years of writing songs for others and herself. This songwriting experience gathered over the years would prove invaluable in this song as it remains true to her character. She is influenced by pop heavy weights such as Madonna, Lorde and Kate Bush while sharing similar vocal characteristics and uncompromising artistry vision with her influences.

With respect to the cancellations of important dates and other live performances this year, she felt more need to work harder on her own project to compensate for that period. Rather than discouraging her, the circumstances fueled her to come up with “Hustler”.

The events surrounding the writing and the production of “Hustler” equally reflects the “never give up in the face of adversity” theme of the song. This says a lot about her attitude, mental strength, and undying love for making good organic music. The song opens up with finger-snapping at the regular beat intervals and a whistling sound (for 8 seconds) to an acoustic guitar playing in the background while her pitch-perfect vocals cue in afterward as she starts singing. Her voice is deliciously electrifying while the instrumental synths and beats serenade in the background, projecting the sound further without overshadowing or suppressing her soprano vocals. She was also able to execute some risks successfully while adapting her vocals easily in some parts of the song where the key is high.

Overall, this is a great song and can be compared with the likes of Avril Lavigne’s and Vanessa Carlton’s.

“Moment” By “Vavz” Is Definitely A Must Listen

“Moment”, is a new song by the ever quintessential songster, Vavz. In this song, Vavz sings about the subject of “transcience’’ where he describes, every second and every moment in time as precious and valuable and should be taken seriously in contrast to the regular rituals of only taking into accounts, futuristic endeavors and gains or dwelling on past successes or failures rather than living for the moment, because you cannot change what has happened in the past.

This is equally in line with the following saying “the success of your tomorrow is a product or the consequence of the actions you take today’.

Furthermore, in a different twist, Vavz originally wrote the lyrics of the song in German, which he later translated to English but was sung in German. He has a great deal of creativity and ingenuity which is always brought to the fore in his songs. The beats are outstandingly resounding.

His audible baritone vocals are crystal, occasionally transforming at intervals into light crisp falsettos but maintaining a regular key for most parts of the song. The song is highly engaging and endearing. It is a heartfelt song that would stir up the waters of your imaginations. The production quality is equally high. This is a testament to the effective shift put in by members of his crew. Overall, this is a decent job and Vavz should get lots of credits for his creativity.

Topafricmusicvideo.com got a chance to do an exclusive one on one interview with the upcoming star and here is what he had to say

Q: Can you please tell our readers your real name as well as your stage name?

My real name is Sami Ghadoum and my stage name is Vavz.

Q:Tell us more about your stage name and the storry behind it

Vavz is pronounced like waves and refers to the motivation to act from the feeling. From my point of view waves embody on the one hand calmness and on the other hand the motivation to change.

Q: Where are you from and Where were you based?

I come from near frankfurt am main in Germany and I was born in Germany. My roots are 50% in Tunisia and 50% in Germany.

Q: At What age did you start making music?

I started playing the guitar when I was about 10 years old. After one year of guitar lessons I broke it off and continued teaching myself the guitar. About two years ago I started to play the piano and 12 months ago I decided to build a studio and publish my music.

Q: What genre of music do you love? Or what genre would you consider yourself?

I like a lot of genres, I listen privately to everything from hip-hop, to pop, indie pop, rock and rnb. I would classify my song in the category pop or indie pop.

Q: Tell us about your latest track or Video ( what is it all about)–Please explain the concept or message behind it

My latest song “Moment” deals with the topic of transience. (“Carpe diem”) Based on several nature scenes, I present the decay and development there and try to convey that every moment should be considered valuable for itself. In today’s society we are designed to always look into the future and to prepare for the next years (e.g. studying at school to get an education, to work, to retire…) and we forget that every second we experience during this time is valuable for itself and that it is not only about the goals that should be pursued. The same is true for looking into the past, because we tend to hold on to good and bad events and drag them into our present. A turning point in my life has driven me to write this song and my whole heart is in this project.

Q: Who wrote the lyrics? who made the beatz? Who made the video?(if any) and finally who produced the song?

I wrote the lyrics, smade the cover/video and mixed/mastered

Q: Where do you get your inspiration?

I wrote the lyrics, sang the song, did the cover/video and mixed and mastered the song. The incredible beat was done by Marzen G.

Q: If you were given a chance, which Artist would you love to perform with?

Definitv on first line with the artist XOV.

Q: Where can fans find you? Please List all your social media links (Youtube/ Facebook/ Instagram/ Soundcloud/ Spotify/ Twitter)

“OLIVER STAY ” The Cleveland Based Alt-Pop Performer

“I’m a letdown!”

An exclamation from solo singer-songwriter Oliver Stay. This Cleveland-based Alt-Pop performer doesn’t say this to describe his music, but to describe his relatable message. Going against the grain of the modern “sell yourself at all costs” mentality typically found in this medium, Oliver strives to connect with you; and wants you to stay. 

In 2017 he found his first success when several of his songs were used in parody movie trailers on a popular youtube channel. Leading to his first interview on a local radio station where he announced his debut EP Castle in the Sky. Only a year after that he released his first full-length album If I’m Being Honest.

Now in 2020, he’s shifted his focus to releasing singles. Of the four songs he’s released so far, “Bones” is the most recent single and has easily broken the mold of all expectations. Inspired directly from the song Wow, I Can Get Sexual Too by Say Anything mixed with vibes from artists like MGMT, The 1975, and The Killers. Bones is catchy vibe about when casual hookups turn more serious for one person out of the two. “My heart still beats / But I don’t know / Where it fits inside your bones.” The music video conveys an energetic lover desperately trying to get the attention of a robotic-like man.

Oliver Stay started learning and playing guitar at 15, specifically because his family fell on hard times financially and couldn’t afford cable / internet anymore. He spent most of his time learning classic acoustic bands like Goo Goo Dolls, Matchbox 20, and Third Eye Blind. These influences shaped his earliest songs like “End of You and Me,” “Rewind,” and “It Never Ends” featured on his debut EP Castle in the Sky in 2017. Oliver Stay took what was originally meant to be a hobby a large step forward with his next project If I’m Being Honest. He learned piano and production so that he could be much more in control during the recording process of his music. Now armed with more knowledge, he built his masterpiece from the ground up; creating his genre-bending style and finding his voice as a musician.
