Jennifer Nettles is still searching for that first big hit as a solo artist. I don’t know what it is about leaving a group or duo in the music industry and struggling to find success as solo artists. It’s not easy. Maybe it’s difficult for fans to see someone as a solo artist when they’re so well known from a group. Or maybe the dynamic of being a group leads to better music.
I don’t know, but I’m rooting for Jennifer. She’s one of the unique characters and voices in country. She has a new single ready for release so let’s check it out.
Hey Heartbreak – Jennifer Nettles
This is a pretty unique way to look at love and the act of breaking up with someone. I think the narrator is looking at the ex in the situation as heartbreak. So the narrator is breaking up with heartbreak. They’re looking at all the reasons the other person was breaking their heart.
Have you ever been in a situation like that? The other person is really all wrong for you. They do things that done fit with your personality and the way you want to live life. Were you able to get away from that situation? It’s not easy.
This is a different song, but it still sounds familiar from Jennifer. She’s always been experimental with her music and there are definitely some “out there” kind of things in this song. I’m curious to see how fans react to this one. It’s always a guessing game. My guess is maybe another hit that kind of tops out around #20 on the chart.
What do you think?
Chart Estimate: #20
