Ivy Mode isn’t your typical Belgian 21 year old. She is getting ready to take the music scene by storm. Mode involves herself in everything regarding her music, from developing the tracks to creating the artwork and even styling her performances. She is a one-of-a-kind artist. Mode’s unique sounds come from inspirations such as Banks, Nick Murphy and James Blake.
Back in 2013, Mode competed in Belgium’s version of a vocal competition show a la The Voice. Her talent launched her into the number 9 spot in national charts with her blind audition version of Ed Sheeran’s hit song “A*Team.” She was also within the Top 8 finalists in the competition. Fast forwarding three years to 2016, she has gained enormous support from Belgian National Radio MNM, and her cover of the Red Hot Chili Peppers’ song “Californication” went viral on Facebook.
Ivy Mode has now released a new single, “Money Can’t Buy,” which was produced by James Lowland. “The song is about putting your career first, sacrificing a serious relationship for it and then later regretting it,” Mode said. “Your regret comes too late after you realize you’ve blown your chance. Now you’re left with a feeling of emptiness because you’d rather share your success with the one you love.”
We here at PopWrapped are thrilled to hear Ivy Mode’s new single. Mode’s clear message resonates throughout the song, and her voice is strengthened by the arrangement of the track. It’s obvious that she has a passion and devotion to music, and “Money Can’t Buy” takes that that passion to the next level.
