In case you missed it, Anna Margo dropped one of the most sentimental yet sorrowful tunes of 2023 so far — and we can’t get enough.
Beckoning in a sultry ballad that gently plucks at the heart strings, the 21-year-old singer/songwriter and producer allows her vocals to sink into a soul-baring narrative about the fleeting nature of love. Above a spine-tingling production, the artist dissects the fragile beauty of loving someone else: the fear it invokes, the elation it leaves behind. Once again placing her powerhouse voice on a pedestal, “Something To Lose” is a spellbinding effort that proves that though she might be new to the scene, she’s ready to dominate.
Speaking on the inspiration behind the track, Margo imparts, “‘Something to Lose’ is a love song about me passing the point of denial and admitting that I can’t control how I feel about this person and have to give it a fair chance, no matter how scary it is putting your heart on the line, and having something to lose. The production kind of has a bossa nova feel to it, and the inspiration behind that comes from my parents who are originally from Armenia, but shortly after they got engaged, my mom had to move to Brazil with her family for her father’s job. My dad, at 18 years old followed her there because he couldn’t handle the distance. They stayed in Brazil for a few years and even though it was some of the toughest years of their lives, navigating a foreign country, finding work, and learning the language, it was also some of the happiest because they were together, and they fell in love with the people and their culture. They both speak Portuguese fluently to this day, always remember their time in Brazil with fondness and often say that’s where they really fell in love so it felt really important to have a little nod to that in one of my only love songs, and dedicate this song to them.”
Tempered with the perfect spring to summer tempo, Margo ushers in the latest addition to our feel-good playlists, leaving us with her personal contemplations for good measure. To stream the track now, head below…
