Review: "break up with that guy." - Virginia To Vegas

Virginia To Vegas’s latest single is a high-energy track composed of cheeky lyrics and a catchy melody. After a late-night out on Broadway in Nashville, Virginia To Vegas met with Jeffery Jordan from Band Camino and singer-songwriter, Seth Ennis, at the studio and “break up with that guy.” was born. The track is meant to be a “fun song that doesn’t take itself too seriously.” It tells the narrative of being in love with someone who is already taken. With lyrics such as “You’re so perfect, he’s so full of shit” and “He don’t appreciate you, and that’s what kills me the most,” Virginia To Vegas exposes the other man as someone who does not treat his partner right. Throughout the track, he pleads with the one he loves to “break up with that guy” because they deserve to be treated better. These bold lyrics bring a lighthearted energy to a vulnerable message about love and longing.

“break up with that guy.” completely engulfs the listener with its infectious melody and memorable lyrics. The track begins with a muffled synth intro that slowly builds until it reaches the full production, met with Virginia to Vegas’s vocals. The verse has a steady beat that is paired with the synth production, effortlessly guiding the listener through the track. Then at the chorus, the production takes a unique turn. The music contains a millisecond of muted sound, generating a creative effect. Virginia To Vegas is known for his unique production and electronic sounds, and “break up with that guy.” is another great example of his exceptional talent.
