Catapulted into the spotlight by her guest turn on Macklemore & Ryan Lewis's Same Love, Mary Lambert is now trying to parlay that renown into solo stardom—and she may just succeed, judging by the catchiness of Capitol Records debut single Secrets. Here, Benny Cassette's simple, yet effective bubblegum-pop production accompanies the Seattle singer as she levels with listeners regarding everything from her sexual orientation and struggles with bipolar disorder to her unfortunate tendency to rock “mom jeans.” B.o.B lends a hand on this newly-released version of the record, acknowledging his awkward adolescence in an engaging, relatable closing verse.
