Charlotte Cardin, the hometown girl with international fame and a coolness factor (read oversized hoodies, ribcage denim and the usual CHANEL accent) that goes beyond borders has dropped a new track, and thanks to her soulful and seemingly effortless sound, we’ve gone from a grim Wednesday to a hymn hump day.
“Daddy is a song about knowingly making a bad decision and loving it,” muses the Montreal artist. “Daddy” has the right amount of grooviness, raspiness and altogether amazingness.
Co-penned by Cardin, Jason Brando and Mathieu Sénéchal, “Daddy” is the epitome of love triangles. “It’s about kissing your crush right by the open bar,” says Cardin. Meanwhile, “your crush’s other crush, standing by the shrimp buffet, sees it all. Your crush can’t choose between their two crushes, so you jump right in and choose for them.”
The track, released alongside a mesmerizing music video directed by Martin C. Pariseau, will be featured on Cardin’s first album, set to come out later this year.
