Song Review: “Love Myself” by Hailee Steinfeld

UPDATE: I know the real meaning of the song now, so everybody can stop sending me all those masturbating comments now!

I’ve been hearing this song a lot lately, but I didn’t think I’d hear it THIS much!

I’ve only listened to it under 10 times since it came out. I have an excuse, it’s not a great one but it’s one I always use. Just the title alone kept me away. These words “love myself” can be about a breakup or just a general loving yourself to the fullest. Message songs don’t always work for certain listeners, something that I’ve always seen with these types of songs where they’re trying to pull you into liking yourself for who you are, people don’t seem to want to pay attention to the words. They’ll just sing it without fully understanding the content and especially it’s got a nice party beat behind it, the real message of the track gets lost. I find it so sad when this happens, but the bad part is that I’m no better because even I’ve done this. I’m really trying to pay more attention to these types of songs whenever I’m learning the words. I want to feel the emotion. I want to use it to remember a memory and then I’ll use both examples, when this happens I genuinely grow to love it and want to sing it loud.

After finally hearing the first time, I actually loved this song. It makes me want to “get up” and dance. I’m actually a little bit addicted to it. It’s not overwhelming, it’s not a pop song that after like 20 listens you’re going to be over it. It starts out with these little bells and Hailee’s soft vocals. She kind of sounds like Bea Miller in a way, but both girls totally unique voices. Thank god! It’s easy going through the verses until the chorus starts then it becomes more upbeat in the tempo, but it’s still going with that smooth feeling to the end. It’s very catchy, you’ll learn the melody very easily. I haven’t listened to it enough to learn all of the words, but I will.

What do you think of this song?

  1. I’ve had this song stuck in my head all day long, so I had to see what you thought of in when I saw this post come up as I was scrolling through your blog. I don’t think the song is a work of art or anything, but it’s a good, catchy pop song with a positive message.


    1. No, you’re right it’s not a work of art. I mean, it’s just another message song that will be replayed for months at a time and then say after a month or two nobody’ll remember it.
