Dierks Bentley – Different For Girls ft. Elle King Review
Dierks Bentley is definitely trying something different this time around, with the release of his new single titled Different for Girls, featuring the rock sensation Elle King. The song is a big sigh of relief in 2016, as it explores a father’s narrative of how a song can be used to project messages of a break up. In the most profound of ways.
Ever since the artist released his career hit albums, Up on the Ridge and Home. It is evident the artist definitely knows the better of ways to describe truthful stories of love, break up, and different aspects of a relationship. Similarly with Different For Girls, Bentley explores the often misunderstood avenue of how a girl feels, following a break up.
Different For Girls saw release on June 6, 2016 under Capitol Nashville. The single is the second from the artists eight studio album titled Black.
Elsewhere in an interview, King had earlier expressed shyness performing other people’s songs, but was ecstatic after seeing the results. King often writes from a male’s perspective, and for her to be a part of someone else’s story was a very exciting experience.
The single has witnessed a good following for its solid subject manner and for a male to express a women’s outcome following a tragic relationship end. The song very carefully addresses an aspect of society that is attitude towards breakups between genders.
The song has witnessed an entry into the latter end, of the US Hot 100 charts, but has steadily climbed to no. 73. Elsewhere, at no.30 on the Canadian Billboard and no.14 on the US Hot country songs.
Let’s talk about the song, it intros with beautiful piano cords and follows, with soft guitars cords to create a good cohesive background. The lyrics couldn’t be more honest and emotionally compelling. As we can see, It’s different for girls when their hearts get broke. Further progression in, how men and women mend their broken heart through – A guy gets drunk with his friends and he might hook up and girls – They can’t tape it back together with a whiskey and coke
The vocals of King and Bentley blended with absolute perfection, the synchronization sounds more in line with a very natural ballad duet.
Dierks Bentley’s Different For Girls has every potential to be a song of the year, we can definitely see more of the song on the country airplay charts with the passage of time. The song brings in reality, and equally a greater sense of compassion to an everyday event.
