Remember that catchy tune, “Christmas With You,” that introduced us to the vibrant world of Kiesza? Well, get ready to be swept off your feet this time, because the Canadian pop powerhouse is back with a brand new anthem, “Heaven Ain’t Calling,” featuring Sugar Jesus. Released on February 2, this infectious dance-pop track is more than just a party starter; it’s a powerful exploration of self-expression and embracing the moment, all wrapped in a dazzling sonic and visual experience. Let’s get on the floor and sway to this incredible music, ‘Heaven ain’t calling’ now!

The song opens with a confessional vulnerability that sets the tone for the entire journey. “I’ve been down this road before, and I don’t know what to do,” Kiesza sings, a touch of weariness lacing her voice. But there’s also a hint of defiance, a refusal to let past mistakes hold her back. This sentiment is echoed in the following lines: “I’ve made my same mistakes, and lord, I can’t help myself; it’s true.”

Kiesza’s vocals throughout the song are powerful and emotive, perfectly capturing the push and pull between self-awareness and the irresistible allure of letting loose. Sugar Jesus adds another layer of depth with her supporting verses, creating a dynamic and complementary partnership. Their voices blend seamlessly, especially in the catchy chorus, where they declare, “Heaven ain’t calling me.” This is not a rejection of faith, but rather a declaration of living in the present moment, finding solace and liberation in the rhythm and the company on the dance floor. With each lyric, they invite us to let go of our inhibitions and lose ourselves in the music.

The accompanying music video, described as a “futuristic spaghetti western film noir,” adds another layer of intrigue to the song’s narrative. The opening scene, where Kiesza picks cards from a strange being and experiences flashbacks, hints at a deeper story waiting to unfold. This visual element serves as a metaphor for the choices we make and the paths we take in life, further emphasizing the song’s theme of self-discovery and breaking free from societal constraints. One thing that blew me away about the video was Kiesza’s presence; she was confident and true to herself. That is an aspect of her life she shouldn’t lose; it will take her far.

Now, the production of “Heaven Ain’t Calling” is electrifying. It is a moment of pure euphoria, with a pulsating rhythm that beckons even the most reluctant dancers to the floor. The drop hits with precision, unleashing a cascade of energy that propels the song into a realm of infectious joy. The instrumentation is perfectly balanced, leaving enough space for Kiesza and Sugar Jesus’ vocals to shine while still maintaining a driving, energetic feel.

Overall, “Heaven Ain’t Calling” is not just a song; it’s an invitation. An invitation to embrace our imperfections, let loose, and connect with ourselves and others on a deeper level. With its captivating melody, powerful vocals, and thought-provoking visuals, Kiesza has delivered a dance anthem that is both deeply personal and universally resonant. So, don’t sit relaxed, turn up the volume, hit the dance floor, and let Kiesza’s message of self-acceptance guide you on a journey toward personal liberation.
