WAFIA has really created a lot of buzz for herself over the past 12 months. Her singles ‘Bodies’ and ‘Only Love’ catapulted her into the spotlight before being featured on Louis The Child’s infectious and experimental track ‘Better Not’ which is undisputedly one of the best songs of 2018. After her massive set at Splendour In The Grass the Australian singer-songwriter is ready to unleash her first solo single of the year. ‘I’m Good’ is a groovy pop song that hears her heading towards a more playful sound compared to her previous moody EP. She still holds onto her roots with her emotional vocals that instantly transport you to another world but her delivery is a lot funkier and hears her adding in a lot more ad-libs. The post break-up track looks at her realising while she was a little upset that it ended that she is actually okay and can move on happily. “I’m by myself and that’s better for my health. You know you put me through hell. But whatever, I’m good”. The euphoric dance moment is a little sassy but is ultimately empowering and encourages people to look at a negative situation with a positive outlook. We all grow from bad experiences and break-ups are a perfect catalyst for this. This song is an anthem in it’s own right and you are going to be dancing and singing along to this for months to come. It’s very…. Good. (Yeah, that was a bad pun).
