Felicia Lu – “Obsessed” single
“I’ve been staring at my reflection; I feel like I’ve lost my perception. Can’t let it go, got blurred, self-deception. Wherever I go, I see them striving for perfection. I have to say I am no exception, I really hate this damn conception, but can’t let it go. I got my mind on my fingertips, tonight, I’ma skinny dip in words written on my sh*t online. I can’t deny I’m living for it, the drive I get out of it, but I think I’m losing it.” – lyrics
‘Obsessed’ tells an honest tale about a young woman who spends her days alone, in bed, and on her phone. Apparently, she’s obsessed with her social media life. Also, she believes she’s trapped in a hole and doesn’t see too much honesty being displayed online. Therefore, she admits, “I’m putting on a happy face, everything you see is fake, seeing no mistake I make. I’m obsessed.”
‘Obsessed’ contains a relatable narrative and pleasing vocals that will resonate well with fans of Billie Eilish. The likable tune possesses lush instrumentation flavored with an alternative pop vibration. Furthermore, “Obsessed” follows mildly on the heels of Felicia Lu’s previously released single, “Band-Aid.”
“I got so used to all this madness, used to feeding my own sadness.”
“I wanted to write a song about something we all are a bit too familiar with. Social Media. Spending my days all alone, I’m in bed but on my phone, I’m creating my own clone – I’m obsessed. The song tells the story of one being glued to their phone, living in that digital world they created themselves and losing themselves in it. It is something we all are aware of but seem to take quite lightly. Because sometimes it’s just easier to forget the real world and pretend the one on our phones is the only one that exists.” – Felicia Lu explained
Felicia Lu made it to the finals of the RTL Talent show, Rising Star, in 2014. In 2017 and 2022, she made it to the finals of the German preselection for the Eurovision Song Contest. Felicia is a multi-talent when it comes to music in all forms. She plays several instruments, writes her own songs, produces, and sings. Also, she designs her own works of art, dances, and finds herself in almost all areas of art. So far, Felicia has accumulated over 10 million streams on Spotify alone, thanks to her million-plus streaming singles (Pay and Anxiety). Plus, her songs are well-received on the radio: In Austria, she reached power play on the country’s largest radio station and her singles (Anxiety, In Your Hands, and Dear Karma) were played on the largest German radio stations.

“All the perfect things that I can see online, building what I want, a world we redesign. Looking like I shine, holding the dark inside. Everything’s just fine when they can’t see you cry.” – lyrics
