In this lesson we look at the song Starving from Hailee Steinfeld.
“Starving” by American singer Hailee Steinfeld and American duo Grey, featuring Russian-German producer Zedd. The song was written by Grey members Michael Trewartha and Kyle Trewartha, Robert McCurdy, Christopher Petrosino, and Asia Whiteacre. It was released on July 15, 2016, through Republic Records and Universal Music Group. “Starving” is included on the deluxe edition of Steinfeld’s debut extended play, Haiz (2015). It serves as the record’s third and final single.
Katherine Barner of Idolator called the song “a dreamy, teen romance anthem.” Teen Vogue‘s Isis Briones said that the song “has a soft guitar start and builds up to a mellow dance tune, perfect for a low-key summer night with your best friends. Thanks to the catchy lyrics and Zedd’s smooth transitions, you’ll instantly pick up on all the words to the song after just listening to it a few times. There’s no doubt this single will soon top the charts, so get on it early and add it to your playlist ASAP.”
