I can’t tell you how often I play Dove Cameron’s music whenever I need tunes that are both authentic and escapist. While I enjoy her Disney hits, Cameron’s original songs – such as “So Good” and “Waste” – are some serious bops with meditative messages about life, love, and loss. The 24-year-old singer captures the wistfulness of young adulthood, as well as the magic of holding on to every precious moment with a sonic quality best described as hypnotizing. Sure, when I’m listening to “Bloodshot,” I’m sitting on my bed in my tiny New York apartment. But I feel like I’m being taken somewhere else, enwrapped in a symphonic story felt through familiar emotions.
The same can be said about her latest release, “Remember Me.” In an interview with POPSUGAR, the songstress opened up about the rapt single and its gist of cradling fond memories. “Life is just like a series of things coming to an end,” Cameron said. “We live in a sort of constant state of mourning over the things that we love, but are always leaving us, or always dying, or always venting, and ‘Remember Me’ is a bit of an expression of that. It’s a bit of a, ‘I will only be this beautiful, this young, this healthy, this vibrant right now, and will never be more beautiful and in my prime than I am right now.’ And while I’m aware of that, I also know that it’s ending and that this is fleeting.”
Obviously, I’m looking forward to Cameron’s upcoming album. We don’t know when it will drop yet, but we’re fully prepared for the journey she’s going to take us through. Thankfully, we have a handful of jams to hold us over until the LP makes its way onto our playlists. Listen to Cameron’s best songs ahead and read how they transport us to an imaginative world.
