Eloise Viola‘s first single of 2022, “Begging” arrived on February 11. A couple of days ago, the London-based singer-songwriter did share the song’s acoustic version. Accompanying “Begging (Stripped)” is a nice-looking, live-in-studio video.
Altogether, “Begging” is a powerful ballad. Speaking about it, Eloise said: “‘Begging’ is a song that addresses the ‘what if’ situation about women in positions of power, a comment on how women are treated particularly as referenced in male-led, ‘Bond’-esque films. The lyric ‘All nice guys go to heaven’ underpins the meaning of the song, that men seem to get away with bad behaviour but outspoken women are called out and criticised.”
