JoJo isn’t the fabulously talented musical act dropping a surprise treat for fans on this blessed, Pride-filled #NewMusicFriday!
“Need to look after myself, yeah, I need to take a breath/ Need to look after my health, yeah, I need to disconnect.” Positive self-affirmations I repeat to myself on the daily? Why, yes! Well, no. But close enough…
In fact, that happens to be the all-too-relatable, singalong-friendly chorus of the long-awaited, much-anticipated collaboration between UK production trio Clean Bandit and Marina & The Diamonds, which they first debuted it at the Coachella Festival two years ago.
To no one’s surprise, “Disconnect” supplies a substantial amount of heaven-sent pop melodies (“Yeah, I need to take a breath/ Yeah, I need to disconnect“) and catchy chants (“ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh“) above glorious strings, sparkling flares of synths and a driving dance beat. There’s something especially euphoric once goddess Marina launches into that dreamy, healing chorus — a real all-star collaboration packed with top-notch lyricism, songcraft and production all at once. MAGIC PEOPLE, MAGIC!
