We Need a “First Aid Kit” After Hearing Maddie Poppe’s Killer New Single
On Friday, Maddie Poppe released her new single, “First Aid Kit.” It’s Maddie’s second single since her big American Idol win last May. And fans, including us, are loving the sound! Take a listen below.
“First Aid Kit”
Now that you love it as much as we do, let’s break it down. “First Aid Kit” shows off Maddie Poppe’s incredible range and soft, soothing tone. She hits some high notes that even had fans second guessing her! But don’t worry, she proved she can hit those notes on her Instagram story over the weekend. Vocally, it is easy listening. Her transition from chest voice to head voice is perfection. This song is peak Maddie Poppe.
But the lyrics of the song are really what make it sweet and meaningful. Maddie is singing to a loved one, saying that she likes the way that her “baby” can make her feel better and keep her together. These lyrics are especially sweet when you think about her relationship with fellow American Idol finalist Caleb Lee Hutchinson.
Fans online have been very vocal about their support for “First Aid Kit” too! Over the weekend, Maddie shared Instagram stories of people fangirling over her new single. The love is also all over Twitter and YouTube!
This so the most beautiful thing I have heard in my 11 year life. I love Maddie from just her personality and humor, and of course her voice. I was so happy to meet my idol last year and can’t wait to have another chance to meet her again. I relate to her so much from our sense of style and humor to our love of the office. I can’t wait to see what beautiful music she has yet to bring us throughout her journey. ❤️
When I saw the notification, I stopped my current video and moved to this. This is the best work you’ve ever done Maddie. I love your music so much!
You knew I had to throw in that last one, right? So cute to see how supportive Caleb has been of all Maddie’s music since the show! The two are definitely still going strong. And hey, if that’s what it takes to get this kind of music out of Maddie Poppe, we are here for it! Fingers crossed for a “First Aid Kit” music video coming soon.
If you want to listen on the go, Maddie’s new single “First Aid Kit” is available to download and stream on all the usual apps and services.
