Olivia Penalva – “Ex’s” single
“Wasn’t thinking how she’d feel. Should’a known she’d be pissed when she heard that we kissed. But you said what’s the big deal, you know that you’re the worst thing I could steal. How’d I do this to my best friend? ‘Cause, it’s not my style to fall for a smile. But we’re gonna make a mistake, gonna see a heart break. Someone’s gonna get jealous, someone’s gonna get hurt. But someone’s gonna get lucky and it’s not gonna be her.” – lyrics
‘Ex’s’ tells a messy tale about a young woman who finds herself kissing someone who should’ve been off-limits. Apparently, the person who she is smooching on is her ex-best friend’s ex-boyfriend. And she doesn’t care.
‘Ex’s’ contains a betrayal-laden narrative, ear-pleasing vocalization, and tuneful melodies. The likable tune possesses upbeat instrumentation flavored with a contemporary pop vibration. Furthermore, “Ex’s” serves as a tasty appetizer to what listeners can expect to hear on Olivia Penalva’s 12 album.
“Tonight you’ll both be saying my name like I’m to blame and it’s a shame.”
“I wrote ‘Ex’s’ about how temptation can be exciting and thrilling but ultimately can lead us to make destructive decisions with serious consequences. The heart can lead us to places where we hurt others. Even if we don’t mean to and the mind tells us otherwise. It is a cheeky and edgy song that sheds light on what it’s like to be the person hurting someone they care about while falling for someone they didn’t know they ever wanted.” – Olivia Penalva explained
Not too long ago, the Western Canadian Music Award nominated Olivia Penalva for Pop Artist of the Year and Breakout Artist of the Year.
