'Hardcore Heartbreak' is one of the best songtitles of 2016. It's also one of the best songs of 2016.
As you may already know, Swedish singer Cilia has form when it comes to good pop music.
- 'Silhouettes In Slow' Motion from last September: brilliant.
- 'Wilder Than The Wind' from a couple of months before that: brilliant as well.
- 'Clearly' from just before that: ALSO BRILLIANT.
Cilia worked on 'Hardcore Heartbreak' with previous collaborators Alx Go and Kim W (who've also worked with Tove Lo and Icona Pop) but this track marks a huge step forward, packs an absolutely massive post-chorus at the 1:50 mark, and sounds like a global breakout hit.
The quote she's chosen to share with the world regarding 'Hardcore Heartbreak' is as follows: "People tell me stories about their breakups, but in some way I always end up having the craziest ones."
WHAT A SONG.
