Songland Season 2 Episode 2 Recap:
In episode 2, we meet four new aspiring songwriters. First up is Dyson from Plymouth, United Kingdom — who performs to her creation ‘Conditions’. Seated on the judging panel are Ryan Tedder, Shane McAnally, and Ester Dean, alongside guest judge Luis Fonsi. Lauren Martinez, a native of Alberquerque, delivers her number, ‘I Don’t Want To Know’. Corri, from New Jersey, performs to her song titled ‘What If’ while Pipobeats delivers a stunning performance to ‘Sway’.
Corri is evicted in the first round itself. While Ryan mentors PipoBeats, Shane guides Dyson, and Ester works with Lauren, to help them improvise on their songs — so that the numbers could suit the taste of Fonsi. Finally, Lauren, Dyson, and PipoBeats move to the top three. But ultimately, PipoBeats’s song is the one that’s able to impress Fonsi the most. The artist is from LA and he says that he thinks of himself as Jekyll and Hyde.
The judges ask Luis Fonsi why he chose that particular song to which he replies: “I’m looking for that connection, and when I heard ‘Sway’ day 1 and day now when reworked, I feel reconnected.” And Fonsi is so taken by his performance that he calls it “musical caffeine”. The number oscillates between Spanish and English and is remarkable in terms of verses and lyrics. Hence, the guest star has no doubts when he picks ‘Sway’ as his next hit single. He also adds that the song does need a little bit of polishing but still, there can be no denying the fact that PipoBeats is the deserving winner for this week’s episode.
