Review: "Heart Wont Let Me" - Jake Adler

Written in a moment of weakness within a romantic situation, Jake Adler created "Heart Wont Let Me". The realization that one needs to work on themselves before they can be what is needed for the partner in the relationship. The song portrays the internal push and pull of intrusive thoughts that can torment individuals and fabricate fears and problems within a relationship.

Beginning with an upbeat melody the song begins with a staccato sound that creates a solid beat for the song to be based on. Despite the meaning of the song the melodies and overall sound of the song has very upbeat notes to it. The most outstanding aspect of this song however would have to be the lyricism present within the song. Jake has perfectly created an image for the listeners to imagine the situations occurring that created this internal conflict. He incorporates a high level of emotion and vulnerability within the lyrics that create a deeply meaningful song that despite its meaning does not deeply saddened the listeners, but rather uplifts them.

Over the course of his career as an artist Jake has accumulated over three million streams across platforms on his music. Hailing from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania he has grown tremendously over the course of his career and accomplished many milestones at the age of 26. Rather than allow these accomplishments to stifle his progress however, he has chosen to reinvent his sound which will be displayed in his third single “Dear You" which will be released on August 12, 2022.
