Review: "Without You" - Jasmine Thompson x Felix Jaehn

The duo from the hit 2015 song, “Ain't Nobody (Loves Me Better)” are back for another collaboration! I’m so excited for this new piece of art they’ve released together titled, “Without You,” because not only is it perfect for the summer, but it displays the growth of these two artists after nearly a decade. The talent, energy, and creativity from these two are stronger than ever, and the ability to come together to create another summer hit just shows how brilliant these two are when they work together. They’ve already proven to be a powerhouse duo with their collaboration on “Ain't Nobody (Loves Me Better)” and they’re back to show us that this is still true! Celebrate “Without You” along with Jasmine and Felix by not only vibing to it, but by appreciating their blending of talents to deliver us a hit once again after so long!

The combination of the wistful guitar, poppy beat, heartfelt lyrics and breathy vocals has me picturing myself with a group of friends driving through the sunset with the windows rolled down, my arms held up high through the open sunroof, and the wind blowing through our hair. I adore how effortless Jasmine sings, and how Felix makes the magic happen by adding perfect musical elements with Jasmine’s voice, making this pop-dance track one to put on replay. The lyrics are touching and feel very personal. It’s a love song that describes the strong bond in a relationship - so strong that you realize your life is incomplete without your partner. Jasmine sings directly to this person: “I can’t breathe here without you. I can’t say what’s on my mind. All the air is filled around your touch. And, oh, I can’t breathe here without you.” This person has an important and special place in her life and heart. She’s showing her appreciation for them, the difference they make and the importance they have in her life. The love she has for them is so true and strong that she describes it as a feeling of relief and being able to breathe freely when they’re present in her life.

Jasmine Thompson is a 23 year-old singer-songwriter based in London. Felix Jaehn is a 29 year-old German DJ and producer. When speaking on the new collaboration after 9 years since the release of, “Ain't Nobody (Loves Me Better),” these two both expressed their excitement on working with each other again, sparking something new, and how much this truly means to them. Jasmine stated how excited she was for the reunion and how all of the memories from working with Felix on their previous collab were coming back to her. “It's been a dream to work with an old friend again,” she says. Felix was ecstatic as well, expressing how it felt as if they’re picking up right where they left off, as well as how “Without You” is a celebration of their reunion and meshing of talents. He says, “'Without You' is a celebration of our musical chemistry and a special gift for our fans. I hope it becomes a soundtrack to many unforgettable summer moments.” These two artists have incredibly impressive backgrounds. Jasmine signed to Atlantic Records at just the age of 13 and has since grown to topping charts, having 3 million monthly Spotify listeners, and receiving more than 3 billion global streams. Felix is one of the most successful producers and DJ’s out there! He is the youngest artist to have ever received 2 diamond award certifications.
