While White has spent his entire career restricting himself with … More »
“Let You Down” begins with plaintive minor-key piano chords and a trembling vocal run through that omnipresent chipmunk effect, the wildly popular pitched-up modulation that makes the human voice sound slightly alien.

Camila Cabello stuck the landing so emphatically that it’s easy to forget she leapt in the first place.
