Single Saturdays: Justine Blanchet – Heart Less

Canadian singer Justine Blanchet released a new single entitled Heart Less. It’s a post-breakup song about a woman feeling blindsided by someone unkind pretending to love her. 

The music is Country. The song is rhythmic, thanks to the fantastic guitar. Music producer Danick Dupelle from Vibe Recordings did an excellent job with the song’s arrangement and composition. The great beat parallels Shania Twain’s Whose Bed Have Your Boots Been Under and That Don’t Impress Me Much. It has an impressive sound, including snapping fingers in the background. The gradient beat of the tune reminds me of old-fashioned Jazz music from the 30s and 40s. There are excellent transitions in tempo that express various emotions. The composition has a terrific combination of old-school Country and new styles.

Justine Blanchet’s voice is husky and edgy. She sings with heart and passion. She has a bold way of expressing herself, realizing she has to move on from a failing relationship with grace and wisdom. 

The song has excellent freestyle writing to represent the ups and downs during the grieving process of heartbreak, a relatable subject. It’s a clever play on words about heart less, listening to the heart less, and heartless, having listeners think twice with intrigue. It deeply covers sadness and anger, two of the five stages of grief. The lyrics are sad but empowering, as the woman in the song realizes she has to from the breakup. The words are easy to follow. There’s a touching humanity and vulnerability. Mackenzie Porter, Emily Weisband, Jordan Schmidt did an excellent job writing the lyrics. 

The single Heart Less is available.
