Sara Bareilles and Jason Mraz Deliver a “Bad Idea”

By  | 

Many have been anticipating a collaboration between these two musicians for years now and they have finally delivered with the song “Bad Idea“. The track starts upbeat and fun; as the song progresses, Sara and Jason begin to unravel the contrast of the lyrics with the musicality. It is interesting to see a song with a meaning of infidelity portrayed in such a light and lively way. Songs of this topic are becoming more and more popular just take a listen to Charlie Puth‘s “I Won’t Tell A Soul” or Jason Derulo‘s “Love Like That” featuring K. Michelle. The difference between these two examples and “Bad Idea” is the vibe they have.It’s pleasant to see how Sara Bareilles and Jason Mraz combined their talent and sound to deliver this track. Mr. Mraz is known for his heartwarming and blissful music (“I’m Yours, “Lucky” and I Won’t Give Up”) while Sara delivered self empowerment and encouraged confidence with “Brave”. They took a situation which would usually be for a darker song and released a catchy tune. There’s no doubt this song is headed towards radio play as well as their other collaboration from Sara‘s new album ‘What’s Inside: Songs From Waitress‘. Take a listen to “You Matter To Me” which is absolutely breath taking and a softer tune!

Jason is the only feature on the album and with two tracks by these artists who can complain! Grab a copy of the album HERE! and listen to their other collaboration below!
