Lukas Graham and his band have been dominating the music charts with his self-titled album. On officialcharts.com, the album is listed as the #2 on the “Official Album Charts Top 100.”
One of the songs off of his album is “7 Years.” He wanted to write a ballad about his reaction to his father’s death. According to Billboard Records, “The soul-pop group this week bows at No. 1 with their self-titled third album and its international hit “7 Years” (Warner) notches up an eighth week at the top of Australia’s singles survey, establishing a new record in doing so.”
Graham commented on genius.com about what the song meant. His family didn’t grow up with a lot of money but they had enough to live off of. He also said that it was “ok.”
One of my favorite songs on the album is “Don’t Worry ‘bout Me.” This song has a bit “livelier” tone to it. He is trying to tell others he was in a rough patch in his life when his father died, but no one should worry about him because it is time to move on. I really enjoy this song because of the lyrics and its upbeat tempo (compared to the other songs).
I really enjoyed listening to this album. The only downside of the album is that it has slower and dreary songs. I would rate it a 8.5 out of 10.
