New York-based pop artist Lexi Mariah returns with her upcoming single, “Queen of Broken Hearts,” available on streaming services August 3. Its energetic sound and carefully crafted narration combine into a catchy track worthy of praise.
Produced by Kenny Cash and written by Mariah, “Queen of Broken Hearts” explores the ups and downs of relationships – how people you trust aren’t always what they seem. The track opens with a seductive guitar riff and vocal harmonies that pull you in and keep you hooked.
Influenced by artists such as Dua Lipa and Taylor Swift, Mariah explores her pop sound with engaging hooks and an upbeat, captivating chorus. The lyrics tell the story of a manipulative relationship, adding great depth to the underlying beat.
Lately I just feel like relationships and even friendships are a gamble and you really never know exactly what you’re getting into. Sometimes the people in your life will “play fair” and sometimes they won’t. They might try to avoid showing their true colors at first, but eventually the truth will always come out.
