There is not an artist out in the world right now who is breaking boundaries with their fusion of genres and visual style quite like french singer, composer and philosopher Petite Meller. Her music is completely unpredictable, you never know what you’re going to get from track to track and that’s what makes her one of the most exciting artists in the world right now. If you need proof of this then listen to her latest bubbly, energetic and infectious single Aeroplane.
“I wrote it while I was on an ‘Aeroplane’, traveling to record my new album. I went on my own to Rio de Janeiro to write with local producers I met online,” she explains how the song came to be and the meaning behind the single. “Every time I go low, the music takes me high. When I’m broken, I turn up the volume and feel my body flying through every country, border, space and time, above everything – floating as a bird, coast to coast. Between airpods and airdrops, I feel like I am an Aeroplane taking people off the ground – that’s my mission.”
This track is so irresistibly jubilant with Meller’s vibrant vocal dancing over the buoyant production featuring Tribal African Wedding drums, rooted in the origins of her mother, a glistening synth section and an intoxicating tropical influenced melody. The chant like chorus has one of the catchiest hooks I’ve ever heard with me yelling out, “The way my body goes, high and low around the globe, the way my body goes, like an aeroplane coast to coast,” consistently ever since I heard the track. However the thing that makes me love this track the most is the feel good nature of it, from start to finish this song just lifts your mood up and leaves you with a true sense of euphoria.
