HA Jamz Two-week Wrap-up

Lauv - Mean It

By Shereen Masoud-Jointe, Senior Account Executive (Europe)

It’s been a while since we last convened on the blog over our mutual love of jamz, but that just means that we have even more to listen to this week. It has become apparent from these selections that we have a few Lauv fans in our midst.


119.   Memories — Maroon 5

120.   The Lion Sleeps Tonight — The Tokens

121.   Rather Be — Clean Bandit, Jess Glynne

122.   Symphony No.9 in E Minor — Antonín Dvořák, New York Philharmonic, Alan Gilbert

123.   I Will Never Forget You — Sakurako Ohara

124.   Never Not — Lauv

125.   Mean It — Lauv

126.   Galactic Repairman — Dear Jane

127.   Fireflies — Owl City


HA-Singapore Digital Manager Vanessa Lee told us why she personally has a penchant for the Latvian-American singer, songwriter and record producer, having chosen the track “Mean It.”

While you might look at the lyrics and think, “Van, isn’t this a sad love song?”, the beauty of music is its ability to take you back to a certain place and time. Memories of my Europe trip back in 2019 play on repeat as I listen to this song, going back to the time I explored the streets of Budapest, Copenhagen, Krakow, Warsaw and more.

Because I loved the song so much and it was the ‘theme song’ for the whole of my Europe trip, I used it to create my first ever travel video.

As we all long for the day when we can start travelling and have our next great adventure again, I hope this brings back a little nostalgia for you. Let’s all hang in there!

As always, you can follow along on our Spotify playlist.
