“Mental Breakdown,” is one of the most well-spoken and meaningful pieces of visual art you’ve more than likely seen in a while. The vibe is multi-faceted and, as the title hints at, brings attention back on the topic of mental health. The musical journey here is doused in a dance-pop soundscape which features the vocal work and writing of Krysta Youngs.
Speaking of writing, this is easily one of Youngs’ strongest skills, she co-wrote BTS’s single “On,” which featured Sia. The track reached #4 on the Billboard charts and is one of the biggest highlights of her career. She’s also written for Twice, Marshmello, Disco Fries, and so many others, obviously highly-in demand and in inner-circles of some of the greatest talents of our time.
Focusing back on “Mental Breakdown,” there is a blend between dance and usual behavior directed by an inner angst. The story at hand is one of dwelling on a relationship that took unexpected turns. Youngs’ comes to terms with it in real-time as a back and forth come about physically while the song gives more insight as to what happened.
“Mental Breakdown,” leaves the listener with a feeling that you’re not the only one who’s felt this way or put in a place like this.
