SINGLE REVIEW: Dua Lipa – Blow Your Mind (Mwah)
Dua Lipa has dropped the catchiest pop song of 2016 and prepare for it to not leave your head anytime soon. “Blow Your Mind (Mwah)” is the next instalment in Lipa’s climb to the top of the charts following the massive breakthrough success of “Be The One” and “Hotter Than Hell”. The structure of the song is very similar to previous single “Hotter Than Hell” beginning with a basic indie beat dominated by banging drums. Then the chorus explodes with bubblegum pop synths separated by a half talking delivery in the second half of the hook. “If you don’t like the way I talk, then why am I on your mind? If you don’t like the way I rock, then finish your glass of wine. We fight and we argue, you’ll still love me blind. If we don’t fuck this whole thing up, guaranteed I can blow your mind”. It’s an infectious pop track that is a different and more pure pop approach to the songstress’ previous indie-pop delivery. Her debut album is shaping up to be one of pop’s most anticipated releases of the year and for good reason. “Blow Your Mind (Mwah)” is an absolute banger and I’m going to go as far as saying it’s the catchiest pop track of 2016 so far.
