Canadian singer Justine Blanchet has released a new single entitled Hard to Love. The song is about relationship struggles, including realizing the sad reality of a relationship falling apart.
The music is Country. The song has a great rhythm going up and down, representing the challenges in a relationship. The transition of tempos is smooth. It starts slowly to then increases slightly, sounding upbeat, expressing hope. However, the tone gets low and deep to show the sadness and disappointment when reality hits hard that the relationship is not working out. The composition is well-structured and intricate. The tune has a catchy beat. The guitar in the song is fantastic to hear. The music parallels the Country hits of Shania Twain and Faith Hill. The song has remarkable richness in musical styles.
Justine Blanchet’s voice is husky and bold. She sounds rhythmic and follows the music with incredible precision. She sings with heart and soul, expressing the heartache she feels because of the struggles in her relationship.
The lyrics are expressive and profound. The song describes the disappointments and struggles of a relationship falling apart. It’s full of intense emotions, something to which one can relate. The song has a fantastic combination of classic AABB rhyme in the verses, then transitions to freestyle poetry in the chorus. The repetition of the sentence “Why you gotta make it so hard to love you ” expresses the frustration and sadness the woman feels, wanting to feel loved, which is understandable. However, there’s hope because the young lady realizes she can be independent and live her own life. The words are well-written with impressive simplicity yet speaks volumes.
The single Hard to Love is available.
