Rock band Linkin Park recently teamed up with popstar Kiiara on ‘Heavy’, the lead single taken from forthcoming album ‘One More Light’.
In a bold move towards chart music territory, ‘Heavy’ bravely shows raw emotion from the band. Sell out? Or smart move? Adding Kiiara, for a new twist, brings new fans to a genre in desperate need for revival.
‘Heavy’ is co-written by Justin Tranter and Julia Michaels, who’ve generated hits for artists like Justin Bieber and Gwen Stefani. Linkin Park are shamelessly headed for the charts.
IMO, rock bands can’t churn out the same album five times over. ‘Heavy’ is also the perfect song to break Kiiara, who is a credible emerging artist.
