Above her vocal melody, you are hit with her rich singing vocals. The bouncing vocals draw you further into the single and sneak into your brain where they sit for a long time. The lyrics are catchy and you will find yourself singing along. The upbeat vibe of the track is infectious and you can’t help but get into it whether bouncing your head to the beat or singing along.
