We couldn’t have seen this coming…

From the editors of InStyle US Words by Jonathan Borge

Did you know that Hollywood movie star Blake Lively is actually a singer? Us neither but it’s true - the former Gossip Girl actress and proud mum’s talents extend far beyond TV and movie sets.

If you don’t believe us just listen to her two songs from the soundtrack of her new film.

In her new film, All I See Is You, Lively portrays a once-blind woman who regains her sight and then learns that her husband is kind of terrible. But that’s not what we're here to discuss right now.

Lively buckled down and hit the recording studio to lend her vocals to the film’s soundtrack. She sings on ‘Double Dutch’ and ‘In Our Dreams,’ and the results are making us question whether she’s considering a debut as a solo artist.

First up? ‘Double Dutch,’ a sort of happy-go-lucky jam in which she sings about playing tennis, picking flowers, and yes, Double Dutch. It also features a younger girl’s voice too.

On ‘In Our Dreams’ Lively takes a moodier approach and sings about counting stars and holding onto her lover.

Listen to both clips above and prepare to be very surprised.

We certainly were - and we wouldn’t be surprised if Blake ventured into the music industry soon.
