Last summer French-Canadian singer Charlotte Cardin, took the global stage with her debut track “Big Boy,” today she releases her brand new single “Like it Doesn’t Hurt.”
The single was born out of the same intuitive melodicism that guides all of Charlotte’s songwriting. Although the words came to her naturally in the moment of the song’s inception, they nonetheless feature a soul-baring specificity. The guest verse by rapper Husser almost functions as a response or reaction to the melancholia of Charlotte’s lyrics, which in turn respond to the toned-down instrumentation. So, as its title promises, “Like it Doesn’t Hurt” is a lesson in keeping cool.
