There a few electro-pop artists with such a vast global recognition as the electronic songstress Betta Lemme. In her latest single “Ce Soir” the Canadian act showcases her seductive vocal capabilities as she glides effortlessly over a thumping beat. The track is out now via Ultra Music and is a sneak peak to a larger body of work set to come later this year.
A trilingual singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, Lemme's storytelling vocal delivery takes center stage in "Ce Soir." Over a multi-layered Eurodance and pop production, she manages to maintain a sense of intimacy through her cinematic songwriting approach. It's as if the global dance-pop sensation is singing directly to you in secret and to only you. Co-written and co-produced with STOLAR (Aloe Blacc, Trevor Daniel, Selena Gomez) the track slowly progresses and as the production builds, Lemme's alluring and often hypnotizing vocal tone creates a warm and inviting space to dance along.
Speaking on the new track, she shares, “I’ve been spending this never-ending lockdown in Montreal with some serious curfews for the past year and a half. At one point when shops opened up, I wanted to give myself a little gift for surviving both this lockdown and myself simultaneously. So I bought these glittery Gucci socks that made wearing tracksuits in the house all week a little less mundane. As it turns out, materialism wasn’t doing the trick. On a night where crying seemed like my newfound and mastered hobby, and overthinking became my full time job, I pretended this little Gucci box was my friend and asked her if she could ‘flip this frown.’ In that moment, material goods became insignificant, a thing I’ve known all along,” explains Betta Lemme, “This song is about letting those daydreams free and realizing that the only thing that will bring meaning to these things is enjoying them with the one you love. I wanted to have fun with loneliness and remind myself that some of the lowest points always bring us the perspective that we need."
