Drake Drops 'Scorpion': The Official Album of the Summer
After being introduced to the works of AV by hearing some powerful acoustic covers via SoundCloud, as well as getting clips of covers and originals in the works via Instagram, I was already hooked. With the release of her latest single, “Just Us,” you can truly feel how heavily AV poured her heart and soul into her work.
I’ve been following AV on Instagram for about a year or so, give or take, and beyond the undeniable raw talent she has, she’s someone who seems so genuine and real. She’s honest, open and up front with her followers, friends and fans. That’s rare and that’s special.
That type and mentality goes beyond just the screen of a phone, but bleeds directly into her music. The story in “Just Us” is overwhelmingly compelling, capturing a sense of familiarity and relevance by being so gut wrenching relatable. The lyrics to the song, and its aching but empowering tone in general really resonates with me. I think it’s a song which in its entirety can be understood by and relatable to many.

We’ve all been heartbroken. We’ve all had to deal with that pain in our own way. It’s clear AV used the depth of her pain and turned it into passion. She fought through it and made magic. I can feel her sense of authenticity. She’s a fierce combination of vulnerability and strength wrapped into a beautiful creation of expression.
I’ve previewed the music video that isn’t out just yet! To me, it collectively brought the song together adding another layer to the storyline. It really gave the song another level of life. Listening to the single, you can feel the pain. But, listening to the single while watching the music video, you can see her pain. You can see how she uses it to heal, strengthen and empower not only herself but others who are here to listen.
I’m listening and I want more. If you haven’t heard the song yet, do yourself a favor and listen below, and keep your eyes open for the video to come!
