I hope you’re buckled in because Bad Ass Beauty is back with another single. She most definitely will blow you away with this one. The singer plus songwriter has several singles under her belt, clearly, this isn’t her first rodeo. She knows how to get her audience’s heart. Blast Off comes in swooping, combining the raw energy of rock with the sultry grooves of R&B.
The track begins with a bang. The electric guitar jumps into existence and harps the beginning of the track. It also sets the stage for Bad Ass Beauty perfectly. LaQuinta Prince (a.k.a. Bad Ass Beauty) has a beautifully interesting voice, there is a gruffness to it but you can hear her R&B texture as well. The electrifying track burns with passion and intensity. Right from the start, the guitar riff in Blast Off catches your attention and refuses to let go. Bad Ass Beauty’s voice seems to penetrate through the instrumental, showing us she’s just as powerful as your electric guitars and your drums. With the cohesive and seamless fusion of rock’s gritty power chords and R&B’s flowy transition, she ignites a fire that burns with a passion.
Only a lead that is literally on fire can carry this song and that is Nicholas Cage. Ghost Rider feels like a film that has a big enough engine that’s powerful enough to carry Blast Off in it. The song is built like a beast, there is no way you can ignore this sonic genius. Everything about the song is unforgettable, from the vocal to the thunderous instrumentals and incredible production. So if it’s all this, you should have hit the play button by now.
