Since the official announcement was made that Louis Tomlinson and Bebe Rexha were collaborating on the song ‘Back To You’ – fans have been anxiously awaiting the release of the tune. Louis himself has been impatiently waiting too – posting videos almost daily on his Instagram with snippets of the tune.
Each snippet made fans fall more in love with the tune but the real selling point was the passion and confidence Louis (and Bebe) both have when it came to ‘Back To You’.
We had all the faith in the world in the song before but after hearing it, it’s easy to see why they were so ready to share it with their fans – it’s incredible. It’s a song you can relate to if you’ve ever been stuck in the throws of a toxic relationship, not just romantically, or had a hard time leaving a situation you knew was ultimately doing you more harm than good.
‘You drag me down, you fuck me up…we’re on the ground we’re screaming, I don’t know how to make it stop. I love it, I hate it and I can’t take it…but I keep on coming back to you‘
Bebe’s voice starts the song with a stunning sound and strength as she sings about a feeling we can relate to all too well. Louis picks up at the second verse and delivers a powerful sound as he sings about the back and forth of those relationships we’d be better walking away from.
The pair sound like they were made to sing together, it’s an effortless blend of sound.
The song and video go flawlessly together as well, and it’s awesome because Louis got his close friends and family involved in the song which also takes him back home. In more ways than one. Plus how intoxicating are these two? Not just in their sound but let’s be honest, they’re both so easy on the eyes.
So what did you think of ‘Back To You’? It’s easily one of our favorite song and video combos in music history, and we’ve got a feeling that we’ll be watching it over and over for the foreseeable future.
Congratulations Louis and Bebe, you smashed it!
