If an open relationship is something you’re considering, it’s important to be aware of the potential pitfalls. For one, it can be really easy to get caught up in the fantasy of it all and start neglecting your primary relationship.
You might also find that you and your partner are starting to develop contrasting interests. What used to be a fun way to spice things up might start to feel like a chore. And if things don’t go exactly as planned, it can lead to a lot of drama and heartache.
That’s not to say that open relationships can’t work, but they definitely require a lot of communication and trust. If you’re not careful, they can quickly spiral out of control.
Alessia Labate’s new single, Kind of Love, is about the fantasy of having an open relationship – a topic that she and her boyfriend have discussed extensively. But they came to the conclusion that an open relationship just wasn’t for them. The two realized that they needed the security of knowing that they could always return to each other, no matter what.
The song tells us to be honest with ourselves and each other when it comes to what we want in a relationship. It’s completely okay to be in an open relationship as long as that’s your choice! There’s no shame in admitting that you prefer something different.
What’s really impressive is the way that Alessia, German producer Emdey, and emerging Norwegian duo Yes Yes managed to create such a catchy track without resorting to over-the-top production tricks. In other words, Kind of Love doesn’t sound forced. It just feels natural and effortless.
The piano is the perfect match for the strong vocal delivery of Alessia. And the beat sounds so catchy, you’ll be drawn in from the first listen.
