kennedi – “liquor love” lyric video
“She likes to drink a lot, but just enough. So we can pick it up where we left off. Don’t tell me what you want, I know it all. You think that I won’t touch, you’ve got it wrong. Say you want me now, know I won’t let you down. Know that I like the sound of how you moan, babe. Say you want me now if you want me now lay me down.” – lyrics
‘liquor love’ tells a sensual tale of a young woman who shares a passionate relationship with her significant other. Apparently, they enjoy being in each other’s company, and they are ready to find out how far and deep that liquor love can take them.
‘liquor love’ contains a relatable narrative, pleasing vocals, and harmonious melodies. Also, the likable tune possesses melodic instrumentation flavored with a chill contemporary-pop aroma. Furthermore, “liquor love” serves as a wonderful presentation to what listeners can expect to hear on kennedi’s upcoming debut EP, entitled, “self”.
The autobiographical five-song release is the artist’s first body of work from her upcoming highly personal two-part project featuring the previously released tracks, “apology” and “better”. The second EP, SABOTAGE, is due out on October 30, 2021, via Platoon. Together, all of the songs on “self” and SABOTAGE serve as an immersion into the mind of the kennedi.
“I give it to her, lick it up ’cause I know that that liquor is what she wants.”
“The self EP is exactly what it sounds like – myself and all of the raw emotions that come with me. It’s a snapshot of how I felt in the moments during the time I was writing these songs. It tells the story of my journey over the past year – my relationships and life experiences. Honest and raw. That is self.” – kennedi stated
Having been diagnosed with bipolar disorder, kennedi created two EPs to distill both sides of her mental nature. Each carries its own unique tone and represents one hemisphere of her emotional mindstate. “self” is the delicate light to SABOTAGE’s manic darkness. From the production to the accompanying visuals, every element of both EPs was created to channel the duality of her bipolar personality. The result is a refreshingly authentic body of music that finds kennedi baring her soul and embracing the extremes that come with it. She holds nothing back, speaking candidly on mental health struggles, sexuality and queer identity, and tumultuous relationships.
“liquor love” single
Through and through, kennedi personifies “Rare”. After signing a publishing deal in 2018, she supported herself by penning songs behind-the-scenes throughout 2019 and 2020. Among numerous placements, she notably co-wrote “Fake Smile” for Ariana Grande’s multi-platinum blockbuster “thank u, next”, “Hesitate” for Jonas Brothers’ comeback “Happiness Begins”, and “Boys Will Be Boys” for Dua Lipa‘s Future Nostalgia. With the forthcoming release of “self”, kennedi is continuing to prove that her music is ultimately just as rare as she is.
