Single Review: Mabel – Mad Love

mabel high expectations

Mabel follows up first international hit with new single ‘Mad Love’
As UK pop star Mabel was dropping bop after bop, with each one I kept writing it would become her first international hit. With ‘Don’t Call Me Up’ I was finally right. The track reached top 3 in the UK, top 5 in a lot of European countries and she entered the Billboard Hot 100 in the USA too. Her appropriately titled debut album High Expectations will be released on the 2nd of August and new single ‘Mad Love’ is out now!

‘Mad Love’ was co-written by Mabel with Kamille and Steve Mac, whom also produced the tune. It is the same team she worked with on ‘Don’t Call Me Up’, which is no surprise after hearing the tune. It has got the same contemporary pop sound with a similar vibe and flow. The chorus to ‘Mad Love’ is slightly more repetitive and not as massive, but having said that, it is still a bop and a half. Mabel and her team have got the art of throwing hooks at us down to a tee. I am pretty sure ‘Mad Love’ will at least be a decent sized hit off the back of ‘Don’t Call Me Up’. It is getting hard to manage our expectations for High Expectations!
