I have been so caught up and stubborn in my hip hop ways that I almost missed this summer’s anthem (according to me) by Swedish producer Avicii. When I first heard the opening to this song it was reminiscent of a folk song but :40 seconds in the bpm kicked into overdrive and at 1:10 seconds in the folktronica took it to a whole other level.
I have seen both official videos for the song that have combined over 100,000,000 views which is pretty certified as anthems go that just came out a couple months ago, June 17th.
Well you can tell me what you think, typing for myself… I like the lyrics and this visual of the song.
