Have you ever been in a dysfunctional relationship? The kind that sends your emotions into a tailspin that you don’t want to end? Then you can relate to Lil Lotus’ latest single, “When Life Gives You Lemons.” Featuring Toronto-based pop singer Sophie Powers, the track tells both sides of the story in this kind of romance. 

Produced by Matt Malpass, known for his work with Machine Gun Kelly and Blink-182, “When Life Gives You Lemons” blends catchy vocal melodies, trap beats, and brightly strummed guitars that pair well with Lil Lotus’ blunt lyrics. After asking his partner why she has to waste his time, Sophie Powers takes on the second verse, addressing the emo-rapper’s accusations with spunk and sarcasm. While the duet is dripping with attitude, it remains sincere, reminiscent of pop-punk duets like “Vicious Love” by New Found Glory. Yet, the song has a modern edge that reveals just where the new wave of the genre is headed.

Leaning into his alternative roots since his 2021 debut album, ERRØR BØY, “When Life Gives You Lemons” gives fans a taste of what to expect next from the emo-rapper. Listen to the track here and let us know what you think!
