SINGLE REVIEW: Louis Tomlinson feat. Bebe Rexha – Back To You

louis-tomlinson-back-to-you-cover

Whoever told Louis that it was a good idea to let Bebe Rexha start the song should be fired. Why would you let a feature artist overtake the song? Because that is exactly what happened. Her vocals are stronger, more prominent and more memorable. But even she couldn’t save the song. “Back To You” is a glorified mess that teenage girls around the world are saying is amazing but any person that genuinely likes music will say otherwise. Bebe takes the lead on the first verse and chorus and then Louis appears on the second verse before Bebe takes over the bridge and chorus again. The lyrics look at a toxic relationship of even when you know they are bad for you that you can’t help but be addicted to them. “You stress me out, you kill me. You drag me down, you fuck me up. We’re on the ground, we’re screaming. I don’t know how to make it stop. I love it, I hate it, and I can’t take it but I keep on coming back to you”. The foundations are there to make this a great song but the structure is just awful. If this was just a Bebe Rexha song I probably would like it a bit more. Her vocals are the strongest thing about this song, Louis vocals song with the structure is the weakest. And the production is basic and I expected more with Digital Farm Animals.
