Fridays are both our favorite and, well, not so favorite day of the week. Why? Because there’s just so many damn good releases that it’s nearly impossible for us to decide which ones to showcase here on Beautiful Buzzz.
The first of the batch that made the (extremely difficult) cut is the new one from rapidly rising singer/songwriter AViVA- a fresh, high-energy single titled “BLACKOUT”. Enlisting an all-star team for the - contrary to its name - colorful pop single, AViVA was aided by a few production power players like Jayson Dezuzio (Imagine Dragons and Lana Del Rey), Charlie Snyder (Bebe Rexha) and Jean Paul Fung who has also worked on past releases for AViVA such as “GRRRLS” and “BRN”. Finally, the song was sonically balanced and perfected by mastering wiz, Chris Gehringer (Twenty One Pilots, Fall Out Boy, Halsey and more).
“BLACKOUT’s” lively nature gives you just the right amount of boost you need to transition from the draining weekdays to kickstart an amped weekend. Also, not to mention how catchy the lyrics are; this is one you will definitely find yourself singing in the shower as you get ready for the Friday night festivities.
