Louis Tomlison is back with his second post-1D single, “Back To You,” this time he has Bebe Rexha and Digital Farm Animals to keep him company.
After the rather bittersweet release of Tomlinson’s last single (his mother died days before), the One Direction star is back and aiming to make a splash like his former band mates have done with their solo outings.
Let’s be honest, “Just Hold On” is probably the worst solo single to come out of the bands break, which inevitably put Tomlinson on the back foot when it comes to his future singles – luckily for him, his new single is quite the mid-tempo tune!
What helps this song stick out is its conversational, back and forth style of delivery between Rexha and her distinctive vocals and Tomlinson – the style works perfectly when adding the lyrics which discuss an on-and-off relationship.
The Animals production on this track works so well with both artists voices (which also work together really well) and allows the voices to not be outdone by the beats.
It’s a smart move for Tomlinson to move away from the EDM vibes of his debut single and move more towards a minimalist, urban-tinged sound which is much more popular.
