What makes “SPACE” by Swedish Contemporary R&B/Lo-fi Pop artist Shadi G such an infectious tune? I have been listening to this tune over and over all day to find out the answer. It could be the vocals. They remind me of a lighter version of Ariana Grande as Shadi G’s vocals are sweet, pure, and light. These vocals are mostly sung in the higher range and in a whisper tone. But, that is a good thing as they create an ambient vibe that is filled with a warm and soothing feeling.
It could be the lyrics that make this song such a must-listen. Shadi G has said that “the song touches upon the matter of being stuck at a certain point in life, wanting to get out. But how sometimes what’s holding you back is the mindset of the ones that love you the most.” I think almost everyone can pinpoint a moment like the one described in “SPACE”, thus making this song so relatable to the listeners.
Whatever the case may be, “SPACE” by Shadi G is such a delightful yet infectious song to listen to. It could be the relatable lyrics, the ambient mood, or the light vocals that define this song. How about you: What makes “SPACE” a must-listen? Listen to the song below and tell me in the comments!
