Review: "Never Love Again" - Buket
Buket’s new single, “Never Love Again”, is a heartbreaking ballad about the aftermath of a break-up. There are a lot of emotions one experiences while going through a break-up, including self-doubt. This self-doubt can leave a person wondering if they will ever be able to love another person the same way again. In “Never Love Again”, Buket questions her ability to move on from this break-up. Her lover has already moved on, but she is hung up on them and the love they once shared. At the end of the second verse she sings, “Maybe I was just too young to love unconditionally// So I keep writing you love songs and calling it therapy”. These two lines are so simple, yet they strike the nerve of the listener. Buket knows that this love is long gone, and even questions that it may not have ever been real. But she continues to write about it despite the pain. She feels it may be cathartic and writes it off as a form of self-therapy, but it may be doing more harm than good. This is the type of self-destructive behavior that many people may partake in after a break-up. Buket takes these feelings and turns it into a beautiful ballad that can resonate with heartbroken listeners.
“Never Love Again” is a piano-led ballad fueled by heart wrenching lyrics and strong emotions. Buket’s beautiful vocals powerfully belts the lyrics in the chorus, exemplifying the hurt and heartbreak she is experiencing. The simple piano composition adds to the melancholy of the song. It paints a dark and gloomy imagery of heartache, longing, and loss. The listener can imagine Buket alone in her room, just her and the piano, mourning the loss of this once beautiful love. This song highlights both her singing and songwriting abilities. The talent she possesses is immaculate and listeners will shake in anticipation for new music after hearing “Never Love Again”.
