I Just Wanna Take It Slow Steve Lacy – The success of Steve Lacy’s “Bad Habit” shows how TikTok can help a beloved song compete with the biggest pop hits, both on the charts and at the awards show.

We’ve seen a lot of unexpected chart-topping songs this year. Thanks to the latest season of Stranger Things, Kate Bush’s 80s classic “Running Up That Hill” has become one of the songs that will define 2022, peaking at number 3 on the Billboard Hot 100 this year. But there is one more song that has survived an unexpected turn up the rankings in a year. A song that not only reached #1 after being sandwiched between pop hits like Harry Styles’ “As It Was” and Harry Styles’ “About Damn Time”, but is now nominated for some of the biggest Grammy Awards – “Bad Habit” by Steve Lacy.

The second single from Lacy’s newest album, Gemini Rights, “Bad Habits” is a strumming guitar ballad of undeniable allure for what is, is and should be – a striking contrast to the upbeat pulse of “As It Was”. and “About Damn Time”, as well as other big hits of the year such as “Break My Soul” by Beyoncé and “Super Freaky Girl” by Nicki Minaj.

How did Bad Habit now not only reach number one (three weeks maximum) but also be nominated for record of the year and song of the year (along with best pop solo performance)? okay, first of all thanks to TikTok. The song has been used in nearly 594,000 videos, including branding videos by popular TikTok users such as Charlie D’Amelia and Hailey Bieber. Also unrelated to a particular trend (as is often the case with a song that circulates on the social media platform), NYLON said the song “seems to relate to almost all kinds of videos – people going about their daily routines, dressing up and hanging out… and it’s more thoughtful, using the lyrics as inspiration for the music video itself. All of this has helped “Bad Habit” slowly but steadily climb from debuting at No. 6 on the Hot 100 to No. 1 on the Hot 100. However, this is not the only hit of the year. As reported by Billboard in early September, “Bad Habit” has become the first song to simultaneously top the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs, Hot R&B Songs, Hot Rock and Alternative Songs, Hot Rock and Hot Alternative Songs charts.

Understandably, “Bad Habit” topped the charts and won a Grammy Award. The song, like the rest of the album, is a combination of sounds, primarily R&B and indie rock. Will this now become the norm where lesser known but still hugely popular artists (or even just smaller artists) can top the charts or get Grammy nominations alongside the ubiquitous pop stars? probably. We’ve already seen how a social networking site or a well-known celebrity can turn a relatively obscure song into a hit. TikTok’s unpredictable democracy also works; The big hits expected today can be found alongside tracks from decades ago like Wheatus’ “Teenage Dirtbag” or a R. Kelly song that shouldn’t really be a dance soundtrack. flow.

And finally “Bad Habit” itself: a good song with the necessary elements to become both a TikTok favorite and an underrated pop hit – instantly catchy and a good tune that instantly catches your ear.

Young Guitarists To Know

Hopefully, “Bad Habit” suggests that more unexpected, slightly offbeat, genre-blending artists have achieved such notable acclaim as TikTok’s virality morphed into a Lacy moment. We are currently living in the age of cold rock. renaissance. This genre title may seem a bit strange and exaggerated, but it perfectly sums up the direction in which modern rock music is heading. Think artists like Omar Apollo, Dominic Fike, and even Remi Wolf. They use traditional rock tropes but slow them down to create a soothing, softer vibe. Add some R&B influences and you have a new genre. And no one leads the chill-rock offensive like Steve Lacy.

Steve Lacy, known to many from the TikTok hit “Bad Habit”, has been working on it for years. Five years ago, Lacy released her first major project, “Steve Lacy’s Demo” (2017), which contains only six tracks, almost all produced on her iPhone. But among the results of the project was his breakthrough hit “Dark Red”. This catapulted him to future successes, eventually releasing two studio albums: “Apollo XXI” (2019) and the latest release “Gemini Rights” (2022). So far, Lacy has been number one on the Billboard Hot 100 for three weeks and has had a dizzying world tour. Lacy’s “Give You the World Tour” recently arrived in Boston.

Lacy and his band perform in front of thousands of screaming fans at the Roadrunner in Boston. The audience knew Lacy’s music well and shouted almost every word from the opening track “Buttons” (2022) to the encore. This fan dedication is second to none, Lacy seems to be having fun with the Toronto audience as she sings louder and louder. He knew the crowd was in his hands and had a great time throwing us around.

First of all, Steve Lacy is an entertainer. Wearing oversized glasses and an oversized structure of the album logo on the back, Lacy turned his concert into a visual feast. With bright flashing lights and colorful flashes, the show itself demanded your attention. However, this does not mean that he abandoned the topic of music. For Lacy’s slower, heartier songs, this theatricality ceased. Lasers didn’t come until the time of madness came.

Steve Lacy Tickets & Tour Dates

Standing out halfway through the set, Lacy sang her hit “N Side” (2019) as fans chanted her iconic words. It’s a slightly hilarious twist on a general-ticket chill-rock concert where the crowd goes crazy for in-house jazz guitar tricks. But it’s fun to participate in such ceremonies with thousands of people around. They all said, “Inside, tell me, is he in?” this crowd ritual was very clear. Steve Lacy was just the leader; music: catalyst. Screaming at the top of your lungs, singing to strangers next to you – that’s the product.

As Steve Lacy shivered onstage, some fans didn’t seem to be taking notes. As the largest indoor admissions venue in New England, the Roadrunner always delivers a hardcore concert viewing experience. There are no sections or alternative seating; thumbs up if you see it and thumbs up if you don’t. However, what was unique about Lacy’s performance was the audience’s breakdown. More than 10 people were knocked unconscious during the concert, and Lacy had to stop every song to seek safety. Besides, every time one of Lacy’s bigger songs started, there was a phone block. Lacy put it this way, saying that she misses the old days when we didn’t think we had to record everything. Call it sloppy, but it’s better to see the program than to interrupt it and start all the time.

However, when you overcome your cuts and fall into the gutter, Lacy destroys the house. The concert ended with a two-song encore featuring Lacy’s “CU Girl” (2015) and (after a long wait) “Dark Red”. This is where Lacy peaked, poking the audience as she lamented that they didn’t want it enough. As the screams grew louder, Lacy played her last hit a little longer before turning it off again. Fans are going wild and crazy for the classic Lacy model. And finally, when the shoe came off and the real song started, it was totally comforting. It was that moment, pièce de resistance, that made the whole concert worthwhile. Then we all turned to music.

Ultimately, Steve Lacy’s contagious personality creates a concert experience. After listening to some of Lacy’s tracks, one wonders how this translates to a mass level. The combination with notes of slow jazz and R&B can be a bit dysphoric. But rest assured, Steve Lacy was made for the stage. Music takes on a new life and a new meaning when performed live. To truly understand Lacy’s craftsmanship, you have to be in the crowd and experience it live. This copy is for personal, non-commercial use only.
