(+LYRICS+MEANING+TRANSLATION) MUSIC REVIEW: CHILLS BY ASHER ANGEL “IS THIS A SWITCH?”

IG @ogefashblog.

Asher Angel is an American who has been acting since age 6 but he loves to sing as well. In essence, he is known in the acting world than in the music world. He is 18 years old and recently dropped this new music “Chills” which is currently making waves all over the world. I am however wondering if he is switching permanently into the music industry or intends to do the two. What y’all think?

ABOUT THE SONG CHILLS BY ASHER

The song “Chills” is no doubt a love song. In the song, Asher talks about the existing feelings he still has for his ex-girlfriend. These feelings are so strong that it is driving him crazy. Even though he has been trying to subdue these feelings that grip him; the thought of her still sends chills all over his body. He doesn’t know if these are signs of “letting go” or “needing back” his girlfriend.

He says the only recollection he has of his ex-girlfriend is a picture of her which he has refused to burn. This he revealed in the verse 1, view below

“It’s a last memory, a photograph. Can’t let it burn, oh, no oh, yeah”

 

 

However, at some point in the song, Asher makes us realize that he is hurting and he regrets ever letting her go.

MEANING OF CHILLS

“Chills” in the context of this song may refer to has goosebumps. In essence, emotions grip him as small bumps appear on his body whenever he thinks of her.

I love Asher’s modulation at the 2 minutes 34 seconds of the song; it was awesome and he didn’t go screechy. The song has two verses, the chorus was taken four times. The major instruments used include keyboard, guitar and the drums. The lyrics are well written and are well organised.

Take a gander at the lyrics below.

LYRICS TO CHILLS BY ASHER

VERSE 1

Maybe I’ll get over you
Should’ve known, I never learn, oh, no oh
It’s a last memory, a photograph
Can’t let it burn, oh, no oh, yeah

PRE CHORUS

Am I losing my mind?
Or is this a goodbye?
Even though that I try
I still get chills
If my heart could rewind
Then I’d look at the sign
When I knew you were mine

CHORUS

I still get chills
Over me, over you
We were one, now we two
I can’t lie, it’s the truth
I still get chills
What we did, how we do
Hell and back, we went through
I can’t lie, it’s the truth
I still get chills

VERSE 2

Knew it was a big mistake to let you go
And now it hurts, yeah, oh, no oh
Hard to know if I’m too late
To make it right, to make it worse, no oh, oh oh oh

PRE CHORUS
Am I losing my mind?
Or is this a goodbye?
Even though that I try
I still get chills
If my heart could rewind
Then I’d look at the sign
When I knew you were mine

CHORUS (2x)

I still get chills
Over me, over you
We were one, now we two
I can’t lie, it’s the truth
I still get chills
What we did, how we do
Hell and back, we went through
I can’t lie, it’s the truth
I still get chills, yeah yeah yeah

Oh no

Yeah yeah yeah
