"A comfortable summer tune that combines Amanda's soulful and transparent singing voice with a tropical house-like catchy sound. Amanda's lyrics, "I met a loved one, and I want to be with you every day," are straightforwardly spelled out in a lyric, and AmPm-like chill pop with a tropical feel is a refreshing song under the summer sun. It's a song that you'll definitely want to listen to."
"Listed as one of the HOT 100 Unsigned LIVE performers of 2017 ".
