Hope Tala's  "Party Sickness" Is a Meme-Inspired Spring Anthem

All mystic water signs known as Scorpios have a seductive yet intimate power, forcing facets in their life to play out like a quirky coming-of-age film, and it's something Hope Tala manifests into her work rigorously. This week is no different, as the London native and Scorpio sun artist shares her new single, "Party Sickness." The track is accompanied by a video that directly tugs at the heartstrings of all horoscope placements in a vibrant party setting, and truthfully, nothing could be more relatable.

Hope Tala is an artist that strays from the rigorous confines of what and how genres should exist, spearheading the trend of churning '90s neo-soul, R&B tonalities, and a classic Latine flare of bossa nova into its own pocket, almost reminiscent of artists like Joà£o Gilberto, but with a summer-like touch. Lyrically, it's always been about the poetic justice of the song and how it can paint a stunning picture of distinct stories: love, anguish, lust, womanhood, and the brutal reality of being a Scorpio.  

On "Party Sickness," she touches on all aspects over a well-composed pop beat while never steering away from the "R&Bossa" facets that make Hope Tala everything she's created thus far. Her airy vocals and upbeat Spanish-style guitar plucks that melt into a fresh pop production is what keep the entirety of the song alive, radiating a vibrant visualization of a cloudless sunny day, sprawling out with feet grazing on the grass. In other words, it’s the ideal spring anthem.  

Hope Tala notes that the process for "Party Sickness" came on with a humorous note, inspired by a horoscope meme that represents the sign elements at any given party. She comments, “The concept of 'Party Sickness' is all about having fun and being a bit messy. A big part of my inspiration for the song was an astrology meme that categorised the different elements into their behavioural roles at parties; it said water signs were the best leading actors in a drama (I'm a Scorpio.) I wanted it to be an anthem for people who consider themselves to be the life and soul of the party.”
