While she continues to enjoy a steady rise in her own right, Anne-Marie is quickly becoming a feature staple.
Over the pasts two years, the genre-bouncing songstress has collaborated with some of today’s biggest hit-makers, from Clean Bandit (“Rockabye“) to Nick Jonas (“Remember I Told You“) to Snakehips (“Either Way“) to Rudimental and Major Lazer (“Let Me Live“) to Marshmello on their smash “FRIENDS,” which managed to peak at #11 on the Billboard Hot 100.
On her latest collaboration, the English talent links up with David Guetta on his newest single “Don’t Leave Me Alone,” an emotional future-bass production that could easily fit on Anne‘s debut LP, Speak Your Mind.
Anne‘s vocal contribution serves as the backbone for “Don’t Leave Me,” complemented by a subtle synth groove that establishes the underlying beat line while keeping rhythm, percussive elements that aid the song’s eventual ascension, and the metallic synth work that brings to mind the characteristics of a Zedd single. “Don’t you ever leave me, don’t you ever go/ I’ve seen it on TV, I know how it goes…,” she croons.
While Anne certainly sounds fantastic here, I can’t help but feel like this is David‘s sub-par attempt at gaining presence on U.S. Top 40 radio again. The formula is too close to Zedd‘s to differentiate.
