SINGLE REVIEW: Sabrina Carpenter & Jonas Blue – Alien
I really expected a lot from this collaboration. Sabrina Carpenter is the dark horse of the pop world and Jonas Blue has some real bangers to his name so this song should’ve been a easy home run. However “Alien” is a little below average at best. The electronic dance beat was standard, predictable and really didn’t explore anything new or exciting. And while this was happening Sabrina was channeling an Ariana Grande vocal delivery and she doesn’t really have Ariana’s vocal range so that didn’t work. The chorus should be the most impactful thing about this song but after four listens I still don’t remember how it goes and that really isn’t a good thing. It had the potential to be a smash hit but the production and delivery just made it absolutely forgettable.
