This new one from Jimmie Allen and Noah Cyrus considers the transition that relationships demand from us. It compares the person that was to the individual that is created because of a newfound commitment to another. The past and the present versions are referred to in this track but what’s most important is who is responsible for that change. “This is Us” categorizes love for what it is. In order for romance to last, there must be an effort made as well as an open mind to grow at the same rate as the promise made to be together.
“All I really know is love ain’t simple” and “But it was just you and that was just me / Before we found love / Now this is us” are the two lyrics that stand out and act as the main points of this song.
Allen and Cyrus actually sound similar to Kane Brown and Lauren Alaina in “What Ifs”. The same approach is utilized whereas both artists join in on the chorus while the rest of the song is primarily designated for one. Though, Noah Cyrus has her own verse while Alaina gives her voice to background vocals. It’s powerful when the female is given a piece to perform alone and the melody softens. Brantley Gilbert and Lindsey Ell execute this technique in “What Happens in a Small Town” as well. In each song, the melody picks up again directly after and both voices blend for another chorus.
“This is Us” is everything you need in a song and, perhaps, everything you need to hear about your love life.
