Dutch mega DJ Martin Garrix is set to impact on the charts once again with his brand new single ‘Scared To Be Lonely’ which features the vocals of upcoming rising superstar Dua Lipa.
The song follows from his worldwide smash ‘In The Name of Love’ which featured BeBe Rexha, and adds to the current collective of hits which Dua Lipa currently has with the likes of ‘Be The One,’ ‘Hotter Than Hell,’ ‘Blow Your Mind (Mwah)’ and a collaborative hit ‘No Lie’ alongside Sean Paul.
The song was released on all digital retailers and streaming sites on the 27th January.
‘Scared To Be Lonely’ doesn’t offer anything new in terms of what everyone’s currently listening to. It’s a mediocre song, with mediocre lyrics. It’s just all been done before, quite a few times actually. Everyone seems to be following a similar sound. If you listen to Zedd, Flume and Martin Garrix in a shuffle order, I think it would be quite hard to differentiate who’s who.
I feel like Martin Garrix is playing it kind of safe. It’s very radio friendly, and sounds a little too similar to his previous single.
If I’m judging solely by the song, it’s actually OK, but when you compare it to what else is in the charts, and being played on the radio, it’s not one of those that seems to stand out, therefore, I don’t believe it will do massively great in the charts. It will do OK, but what else can you expect for an OK song, when it sounds like 60% of what’s being played these days.
Rate /10: 6
Is it worth buying? No (unless you’re like me and has already bought Dua Lipa’s whole discography then sure)
