Emmy award-winning actress Dove Cameron continues to prove her musical stronghold with her latest single “We Belong.” The 24-year old songstress previously teased her debut album with a slew of singles introducing her American sweetheart style with tracks “So Good,” “Out of Touch,” and “Remember Me (feat. Bia).” A year since her first solo release, it looks as though she’s finally found her footing (and it’s a sure force to be reckoned with).
“We Belong” pulses like a heartbeat as its lyrics explore the tumultuous ride of love, longing, and the ever so awkward “in-between” stages of a budding relationship. “We belong together, and you know it,” she declares confidently against a catchy jingle-like set of instrumentals. Produced by Jesse Shatkin, the duo manages to encapsulate the innocence of dating as a twenty-something and the indecisiveness that comes along with being young and in love. “Said I need space, but I don’t need space, I need you to come to me” the singer claims poignantly.
In a breathy delivery, Cameron reiterates her loyalty to her lover miles away that just does not seem to care. She’s made her love clear, but is there anyone listening on the other end? Growing from a simple set of melodic guitar plucking into an anthem-like declaration of passion by the song’s close, Cameron’s voice is both a soft yet dominant power emphasizing a very dynamic, yearning facet of affection.
Cameron, who initially rose to fame after starring and singing in Disney Channel’s TV series Liv and Maddie, is no stranger to translating music into the screen. Listeners of “We Belong” will also get the additional opportunity to watch the hit grow to fame as the featured track for the upcoming film After We Collided. Set to serve as the sequel to the 2019 romantic drama After, the film, which features Dylan Sprouse, Josephine Langford, and Hero Fiennes-Tiffin mimics the same sense of love-driven frustration. With all of this mustered up romantic tension, “We Belong” is sure to strum up a rouse in the best way possible, and Cameron is about to ignite its fire.
