Christine And The Queens – “True Love” (Feat. 070 Shake)

Christine And The Queens has been graduating into their stadium era for what feels like years. In the run-up to forthcoming album PARANOÏA, ANGELS, TRUE LOVE., it finally seems like Chris is on the precipice of achieving that moment. On their slow-burning “True Love,” which creeps over Mike Dean’s staticky, heart-monitor beat, Chris transmits an icy fear around being truly vulnerable with someone. “I can’t believe you saw me crying,” they admit in one minute, only to turn around and confess: “When I dance, baby, I dance for you.” It might seem counterintuitive that such a warm sentiment would be at the center of what is a pretty chilly track, but getting that emotionally naked is bound to cause goosebumps, IMO. —Rachel
