Single of the Week: “Rock Bottom” by Hailee Steinfeld

Hailee Steinfeld’s song “Love Myself” has become my personal anthem since its release. You can’t help but get excited when you hear the “HEY!” in the beginning and whip your head and body all over the place in your dorm room. Well, lucky for us, Steinfeld came out with an EP called Haiz and it is magnificent. With just four songs, including hit single, “Love Myself,” you feel connected to what she has to say, while also dancing and shouting the lyrics because you feel empowered by them. Although all of the songs are great, my favorite, I think, is “Rock Bottom.” She captures the essence of being in a relationship that you know isn’t the greatest, but it feels good when you are together and that’s all that matters. Her upbeat tempo somewhat distracts from the fact that her lyrics are quite raw, but that’s the great thing about it, you can enjoy the song without feeling depressed. If that song doesn’t speak to you, then there is always “You’re Such A” and “Hell No’s and Headphones” that you can rock to the beat with. For less than five dollars, this EP is worth it and fans will be eagerly waiting for her full album to fill our musical souls.
