It’s quick and fun to listen to, and more than that, it has a good message. Despite numerous stories of wretched breakups or unrelenting heartbreaks, this song respects the relationship and its ending. It is accepting, moving on, and making good music of a real experience. Much like Kayla Rae’s past songs, it carries the power of her voice and opinion to a harmonious melody and rhythm.
This song holds more than just love. It has hindsight, reflection, emotion, and recovery. The song starts off with a unique sound to set the beat and then her first line sets it up.
I used to think I was just crazy ‘bout ya,
turns out I was just crazy.
Her relationship hurt her and she knows she was wronged. Yet, she acknowledges that she is not losing sleep and still living her best life. She sings of her pain and growth in a beautiful way. Her voice is deep and feminine. Her music is exciting and mellifluous, and more, catchy. The chorus is the catchiest, and arguably, best part. With an clear tone, she exclaims atop the pulsing music:
It’s all love,
on this side, this side, this side.
I hope you get the cash flow
and everything you asked for.
And it repeats. And I wanted it to. The bass grows stronger in the second verse and so does Rae. She wishes this other person well, but focuses more on how she thrives on her own now, how she keeps busy. There is no anger – just genuine good vibes. Her peaceful voice repeats the title intertwining with ooh’s and ahh’s. Then, the song climaxes in a loud and lovely repetition of the chorus, carrying the song to its conclusion. It’s all love from her to her ex, and from me to this song. Check it out.
