Featuring melancholic flutes, upwinding piano chords and Bassey’s outstanding, soulful vocals, this could very well turn into the anthem for these unpredictable times.

Tastefully hitching on today’s (post)pandemic sentiments, the song is a sweet combination of energizing dance music and pop in its most melancholic guise.
When the record breaks down, you hear the hands clapping under Bassey, who enters full gospel mode, providing the song with an even larger dose of rapture
It’s a song that begs for a live audience, to enlighten the crowd with shots of feelgood vibes. John De Sohn and Inyang Bassey have articulated everyone’s thoughts and feelings with this song, surely the soundtrack of an era that we won’t forget years to come.
