Long distance relationships are not easy. Missing someone that is too far away for you to reach is a heartbreaking feeling. You can’t see or talk to them in person…you can’t feel or smell them…you can’t hear the way they talk and sound… Luckily, we live in a world where technology can do amazing things. It can be hard for some people because they rather have their significant other right next to them, especially if their love language is physical touch. They can kiss them, cuddle them, hug them and have a deeper connection. “Video Calls” by Taura Lamb is the perfect song for those who feel this way. Having that urge to be with them in person, but there’s also the option for video calls when you’re far away from each other.
“Video Calls” is a sensual, pop R&B song with sexy lyrics and upbeat music. The song starts off right away with the lyrics, “You’re sugar baby / and I’ve got a sweet tooth” indicating that this song will be romantic. Lamb has a soft voice which sounds pleasant to the ears. She has that relaxed R&B flow through her lyrics which is very pleasing to the ears. A male voice is incorporated through the song which is like an answer to her call. It was a clever idea to add a male voice because it gave the listener both sides to the relationship of how each felt. The rhythm and beat is easy to groove to and will have you moving along with the song. Everything in this song creates a melodious jam that is exciting for love and intimacy.
