Mae Stephens has released her major label debut with ‘If We Ever Break Up‘, and we have opinions.
Now, I love a good chorus and a good synth sound (dun-dun-dun-dun), and this song has got all of that!! The shortfall? Well, the highlight of the song is the chorus, which was heavily teased on TikTok dating back to December of 2022.
Naturally like every good TikTok song, I was hooked. I was READY for a good song with heavy meaningful verses. Did we get that? Nope. We certainty didn’t, do we love the song even less as a result. Nope. We certainly don’t.
Mae saw the time length of Sam Smith and Kim Petras’ “Unholy” at 2 minute and 37 song and she said “bet”, making her song “If We Ever Breakup” come in at a whopping 2 minutes and 22 seconds. Popstars are making songs shorter, and I’m not sure If I love or hate that, but at least Taylor Swift believes in a good ten minute song.
Anyway, ‘If We Ever Broke Up’ is a gem of a song, I love people with the name ‘Stephens’ (or any other variations), so short song aside, this has been on CONSTANT repeat since she dropped the full song, and her first on a major label!
