Nothing makes us happier than finding a new song to add to our ever-growing playlist of love songs to scream at the top of our lungs. Yes, that’s a thing, and we recommend everyone have one! ‘Let’s Pretend’ by Canadian pop star in the making Victoria Alex has skyrocketed to the top of our lists with her powerful vocals and emotional story-telling.
‘Let’s Pretend’ tells the story of falling for someone almost instantly and pretending they’re yours. It’s ironically the fairytale of our nightmares that a lot of us, unfortunately, can relate to. Hiding the pain and insecurity in a danceable melody with a killer drum line, Victoria Alex has created the perfect tortured love anthem!
Haven’t you heard it yet? You’re severely missing out! ‘Let’s Pretend’ gleefully brings us back to the days of jamming out to Fefe Dobson and binge-watching Instant Star. Yes, we’re aware that seems like a very Canadian cliche, but we’re pretty sure that was her whole point. This song is definitely something we could picture Jude performing with the heartthrob Tommy Q.
So, if you’re looking to fill the void in your heart that the passing of the mid-2000s aesthetic left behind, listen up! Victoria Alex has perfectly transported us back to some of the best days while still feeding us a fresh sound. Now that takes talent. We predict that Victoria will be an up-and-coming pop voice in 2023, and we’re excited to see her journey.
