Liam Payne, ‘Bedroom Floor’ | Track Review
Liam Payne returns with “Bedroom Floor,” his second official single as a solo artist. “Bedroom Floor” proves that falsetto can be powerful.
After making a splash with “Strip That Down,” Liam Payne returns with his second official single as a solo artist, “Bedroom Floor.” “Bedroom Floor” features urban-electro-pop production. The record makes compels with the use of a four-on-the-floor beat, while a steel drum (synth) adds a tropical touch. Liam Payne delivers clear vocals throughout. He employs his middle register throughout the verse and most of the pre-chorus.
Speaking of the pre-chorus, it serves as a fine lead-in to the chorus.
“You be saying real, real nice, real nice things / When I’m touching you / You be getting real, real, real, real, real jealous / When it wasn’t you, oh / And every now when my iPhone, iPhone rings / I be telling you / I told you, I told you, I told you.”
Payne is best when he nails the falsetto on the chorus section. Naturally, the chorus is catchy, filled with repetition.
“You said it was over / You said it was over / But your clothes say different on my bedroom floor / You said it was over / You said it was over / But your clothes say different on my bedroom floor / You said it was over, you said it was over / But your clothes say different on my bedroom floor…”
A brief bridge serves as a solid lead-in to the final chorus. The bridge brings things back down before a falsetto-driven line brings things back up once again.
All in all, “Bedroom Floor,” the second single attributed to Liam Payne as a lead artist, works out well. It’s enjoyable, well-produced, and well-performed. The best attribute of “Bedroom Floor” is clearly the falsetto.
