Dove Cameron's dramatic "Remember Me" ft. BIA is a refreshingly beautiful piece of pop
Dove Cameron released her new single "Remember Me" featuring BIA on Friday [April 10].
She debuted the song during the World Heath Organization’s #TogetherAtHome concert series last week, and we're pretty sure that the track has already joined your favorite new list of quarantunes, or will do as soon as you hear it.
The star makes the transition from actress to credible music star look so effortless, yet it's not an easy feat.
As an actress, she is best known for Disney’s Descendants trilogy in which she played the fictionalized daughter of the villain Maleficent. She also played the role of Cher in the off-Broadway musical adaptation of the 90s movie, Clueless.
Cameron re-launched her solo recording career with her EP "Bloodshot" and "Waste" last year. "Remember Me" is the follow-up to her single, Out of Touch, which she released the same year on December 6.
Her newest release is a sultry, dark track, accompanied by an equally dark and dramatic lyric video, shot with the cinematic finesse of a classic movie from Hollywood's golden age.
During the chorus, Cameron sings:
"Please remember me like this
Cameron recently told MTV that the message behind the lyrics is "time's ticking, so enjoy me as I am now."
"I feel really good about 'Remember Me' [because] you do get transported somewhere; I feel like it's a rainy night in Tokyo or New York.
"The sun's just coming up and you've been out all night on a bender. I love [the lyric] 'No shoes, dancing around your living room / Pulling off my t-shirt, putting on a show for you,' because it's very sexy and youthful.
"It feels very much like the dark, teenage-dream love story that people like me always dream about."
She also revealed that the song wasn't always meant to be a collaboration, but when rising rapper-singer BIA sent in a verse for it earlier this year, the song finally just clicked for her, resulting with the two joining forces.
At just 24-years of age, Cameron already possesses a down-to-earth and empathetic warmth, with a depth of maturity beyond her years. As a singer-songwriter she's proving to be immensely talented, has released a beautiful piece of pop, and is a much-needed breath of fresh air on the current music scene.
