SINGLE REVIEW: LANY feat. Julia Michaels – Okay

Emotional therapy. That should be the new name of this song because that is what ‘Okay’ becomes. When you combine the vulnerability of LANY and Julia Michaels together, they unleash a very beautiful and raw approach to heartbreak that speaks to your soul. “I’m gonna be okay, right? I wish I could tell myself that at night” they candidly ask during the chorus as they question if they will ever feel the same again after having their heart ripped out of their chest. They then compare themselves to their ex lover who is seemingly moving on without a care in the world which we all know is extra heartbreaking. Why am I always the one who takes so long to recover? You may find yourself asking. Well, this song will also speak to that side of you psych. “Is it wrong to think you’re sadistic? I know you’re sleeping perfect while I’m over here hurting”. The unique thing about this track is that there are no solo’s throughout the whole song. Instead both Michaels and Klein sing at the same time, which in two provides some smooth melodies. It’s an interesting vocal delivery which isn’t done often but when it’s done right, it’s done RIGHT and I cant imagine this song to be any other way. It just makes sense for them to both be singing the whole way through and provides a unique texture. This is a song that has massive radio potential and if it doesn’t get immediately added to heavy rotation then I’m going to be severely confused.
