London based singer Lièt is in her bag on her amazing debut single “Bittersweet.” Lièt has been one of the industries best kept secrets for some time. She has written for artist such as Stefflon Don, Hardy Caprio, One Acen, and Geko. She toured with international sensation JLS as a backing vocalist, and she has graced the stages of The X Factor and The Voice. With such an impressive resume, the pressure to step into the spotlight as a solo artist could be overwhelming, but Lièt handles it with ease on her melodic new single.
The bouncy, Nosa Apollo produced record is so fun that you could be forgiven for missing the depth embedded in the lyrics as you groove to the beat. The juxtaposition is brilliant. Lyrically, the song details the story of falling deeper in love with someone who brings just as much pain as they do pleasure. Lièt knows her lover is no good, but she can’t find the strength to leave. Vocally, her angelic, agile voice glides across the track smoothly. Her layered vocals in the chorus are so satisfying you don’t want the song to end. This song definitely deserves a spot on your summer playlist.
