Young love is tough. Everybody has big emotions and strong personalities, and it feels like you spend half your time fighting. Passionate fires that burn bright in the morning turn to smoldering ash by the next day, and you find yourself at the next rave looking kind of out of place, alone.
So it goes for bilingual pop star Becky G in the music video for Digital Farm Animals’ “Next To You.” The song features additional production from Jamaica’s Rvssian, whose previously worked with Cardi B, J Balvin and more.
“Next To You,” out now via Arista Records, is a dancehall-tinged ballad that puts a soft-spoken twist on the bright lights of dance-pop. The understated hook is the most interesting part, representing the lyrics’ regretful and introspective mood.
London’s Digital Farm Animals makes his mark on the biligual scene with G’s fast-rap stream in the third verse. In 2017, he hit the Hot 100 with louis tomlinson and Bebe Rexha on “Back To You.” Could this be a crossover favorite?
