The true talent of singer/songwriter/producer, Chelsea Collins, cannot go unrecognized in her new single, “Hotel Bed,” featuring Swae Lee – the lead single from her forthcoming EP. The LA-based artist is a singer with a vision – on a mission to take over the pop world.
Chelsea's confidence and presence instantly reminds us of Britney in her prime, which even she self-honored the comparison with her single "07 Britney," showing off her vocal prowess and her own edginess – making her a standout in the pop realm. Co-produced by Chelsea herself, "Hotel Bed,” balances hit-making songwriting, with floating melodies, on top of crisp punchy drums, contrasted with the rhythmic R&B and hip-hop undertones accentuated by Swae Lee's harmonies and verses. Lyrically dense, the song talks about a relationship that has unfortunately gone wrong.
The new feeling of isolation and loneliness that comes after a breakup is perfectly embodied in a hotel bedroom, where you are away from the comforting feeling of being home with a special person. The accompanying music video plays on the love/hate relationship between Collins and Lee, jump cutting between moments of pure lust between the two, with the very moments of distaste that likely led to the end of the relationship.
"Hotel Bed" is not only brilliantly balanced with how it is structured and written, but it's also a display of Chelsea's true raw talent to the world. An inspiration by example for other women producers, Chelsea is reimagining pop with her own personal touch going into every step of her artistry. There's no stopping the trajectory her career is on and If you haven’t had the chance to listen to "Hotel Bed" yet, let her new music video do your first listen justice.
