Have you ever been rejected so badly that you feel like you’re going out of your mind? You keep wondering what you did wrong, and you rack your brain for a solution. But there’s not one to be found.
Elle Massimo’s latest single, 4 Letters, is about that exact experience. The lyrics are raw and emotional, and they really capture what it means to be totally consumed by love and then losing it all.
4 Letters has a pop vibe that’s reminiscent of some of the biggest hits from the past few years. And that’s only a good thing. There are a lot of different elements going on in this song, but they all work together perfectly.
Elle sings well here. She’s able to control her voice in a way that allows her to sing with remarkable power and clarity. She also uses a significant amount of pitch variation, which gives her performance a haunting quality. Combined with her excellent phrasing, this makes her one of the most unique and captivating singers out there today.
