Mary Lambert’s “Heart On My Sleeve” Review

Singer-songwriter Mary Lambert rose to fame after her collaboration with Macklemore and Ryan Lewis on their song “Same Love.” Due to its rise as an anthem for LGBT rights, this song became a hit, Lambert became a star in her own right.

Lambert’s most recent song, titled “Secrets”, was popular this summer, hitting number 66 on the Billboard Hot 100, and played on the radio in heavy rotation. “Secrets” empowers girls to love who they are and disregard those who put them down. Lambert is known for her songs’ messages of self-confidence and love, as shown by “Same Love” and “Secrets.”

I instantly fell in love with “Secrets” the first time I heard it on the radio, and played it on repeat for the next week. The tune is so catchy, and the lyrics are fun to sing along to. I also really loved the message Lambert undertones her song with, saying everyone should be proud of who they are.

Lambert’s debut album, “Heart On My Sleeve”, was released on October 14th. It features fourteen songs, including “Secrets.” Like “Same Love” and “Secrets”, Lambert puts personal stories of self-appreciation within the entire CD. An interesting song on the album is “Dear One,” which is spoken poetry by Lambert with music playing in the background. My favorites on this album include “So Far Away”, “Heart on my Sleeve”, and “Sum of Our Parts”.

“Heart On My Sleeve” is available now, and can be purchased at digital retailers such as iTunes and Amazon.
