Review: "idk" - Lánre

Have you ever had doubts in your relationship? Whether it's the feeling they could be cheating, that they don't love you anymore, or you're just not good enough for them; there’s the feeling of insecurity that creeps up when you experience these anxious thoughts. Lánre’s song, “idk” is a story about having those feelings about a significant other. There's overthinking involved which can drive you crazy. Getting heartbroken by someone you love hurts because of that trust you had with them. You're stuck there wishing they had lied to you instead of them breaking your heart. Either way, you're going to get hurt in the end.

Lánre draws you in with his soothing vocals that are very captivating to the ears. He has emotion in his tone when describing the potential wound in his heart after thinking about his lover’s possible betrayal. This raw feeling brings the listeners in to sense the pain he feels. His relatable lyrics are tied with an upbeat, electro-pop soundscape which uplifts the song to have a catchy hook. The tune creates a mood that makes you want to dance; although the lyrics are emotional, it's a great contrasting balance. The self-doubt in this track is shown through the lyrics as Lánre continues to have uncertainty in his relationship. The song ends with “If you break my heart tonight” before it goes off in peaceful ad libs and melodic strums.
