"Blue Vibes" is a song by Polish singer Margaret. It was recorded to promote the Polish-language version of the 2017 animated feature film, Smurfs: The Lost Village.[1] The song was also included on Margaret's third studio album Monkey Business (2017).[2] The single was released on 17 March 2017, only in Poland.[3] It was written by Joakim Buddee, Ingrid Hägglund, Margaret and Dimitri Stassos, and produced by Stassos and Buddee.[4][5]

Music video[edit]

A music video for "Blue Vibes", released on 17 March 2017, was directed by Konrad Aksinowicz. The video features scenes filmed in a studio with Margaret and a person dressed as Smurfette dancing on a baby pink background, as well as scenes from Smurfs: The Lost Village.[6]

Critical reception[edit]

Wiwibloggs' Chris Halpin wrote that the song "doesn't really stray too far out of Margaret's latest offerings. It's perhaps a little more chilled compared to "Elephant, with less of the aggressive drums and a more summery feel to the beat. ... The song also doesn't tie itself in to the Smurfs at all: this isn't a theme song, merely a riff. We're thinking "Can't Stop the Feeling!" here, y'all. It's a grown up track that suits Margaret's vocal and doesn't sacrifice to fit a PR campaign, but is merely enhanced by it."[7] Mike Wass of Idolator believed that "this ridiculous euro-pop anthem is even catchier" than "I'm a Lady" by Meghan Trainor, a track also recorded for Smurfs: The Lost Village.[8]
