Hope Tala has shown herself to be a versatile artist. She is not afraid to tackle some tough issues – of society and the heart – but she also knows how to change gears musically. This time around, she has released an invigorating dance track entitled “Leave It On The Dancefloor” to help us forget our troubles (at least temporarily).
The song, co-written by Hope, Mozella and producer Greg Kurstin, gives summery, feel-good vibes that are much needed in these times. The bouncy drumbeat and slick bassline are complemented perfectly by synth chords that collectively transport us back to the carefree '80s when dance music ruled.
Hope’s vocals reflect her upbeat mood as she takes us out for a night on the town. "Ooh, the night is young and, baby, so are you / Let’s have some fun, I promise there’s no rules / Don’t let nobody tell you what to do / When you groove," she sings on the chorus.
“I wrote this song imagining what I would want someone to tell me while I was going through a hard time," Hope stated via press release. She went on to share, "Going out was something I missed intensely through the various COVID lockdowns, particularly when I was feeling down in the dumps. It was something I didn’t know how much I valued until it wasn’t possible or safe anymore.”
"Leave It On The Dancefloor" is Hope Tala's third new single of the year following "Party Sickness" and "Is It Enough," which dropped in February and July respectively. All of this new music from her direction signals that she has another project on the way, set for release this fall.
In other Hope Tala news, she was recently selected as Deezer Music’s Artist Pick for August and has collaborated with them to release an exclusive acoustic version of “Leave It On The Dancefloor” on the Deezer app. We have our fingers crossed that the acoustic version of “Leave It On The Dancefloor” gets an official release soon. Til then, we'll just keep bumping the original, which you can get started doing when you press play below.
