Anjulie Turns Her Latest Single Into Social Commentary With “Big Bad World”

It’s hard not to get discouraged with life when there are so many things wrong with the world. The impossibility to fix everything results in apathy and tuning out from the horrors surrounding this darkness. Singer-songwriter and producer Anjulie delivers an impassioned remark on this dark reality with her latest single from her upcoming sophomore album “Big Bad World.”

The pop tune carries an essence of classic chords and jazzy inflections. The production is mainly supported by a dark piano while instances of glistening elements, like drums and strings, filter through and add softer textures. The melody complements Anjulie’s lyricism and takes time to showcase the artist’s range. Lyrics like “I know you’re tired of playing the blame game” and “no it’s not your fault, you don’t have to care” are cynical retorts to people’s excuses for refusing to acknowledge the horrors of humanity. 

Anjulie is a JUNO award-winning, platinum-selling singer/songwriter from Toronto. The Canadian/Guyanese/Indian producer has collaborated with Diplo, Zedd, Kelly Clarkson, Nicki Minaj, Lady Gaga, Natalia Lafourcade, Phyno Fino and KSHMR to name a few. Her music has been featured on HBO, ABC, NBC, and MTV, earning 2.2 million monthly Spotify listeners and hundreds of millions of streams across platforms.
