“Love Victim (feat. Jordan Adetunji)” by NADIA

“Love Victim (feat. Jordan Adetunji)” by NADIA is a marvel of both songwriting and production. With its effortlessly catchy melodies, climactic rhythmic integrity, and vibrant vocal performance, this song checks all of the boxes necessary to be a dance hit. If you’re not totally blown away by the anthemic chorus, then you’ll at least be mesmerized by the dreamy sound design. NADIA makes sure there’s a little something for everyone to enjoy.

An echoing, mallet-like synth and a few vocal samples invite us into the song. “Gave you all of my heart / Then I watched it fall apart / I’ve been drinking for days / Trying to erase all the memories,” the singer croons in a low, sultry tone. Simple percussion lays the foundation for the beat (mostly snaps and a few kick drum hits) as background vocals swirl through the mix, adding a little color here and there. With an acrobatic run, the verse suddenly transitions into a pre-chorus. Here’s where we get that speedy, exciting, classic EDM build. As the drums get faster and faster, we’re catapulted into the hook: “I’m a love victim.” These glorious harmonies ricochet through the background, falling down the scale in a chorus of drama and poignancy. It’s one of the most effective melodies you’ll ever hear. By the time it ends, you already want to hear it again.

Stay tuned for a verse by a different singer and a gratifying ending. If any of this sounds like it may be up your alley, be sure to give NADIA a follow, a like, and a listen! You’ll be glad you did.
