Los Angeles recording artist Samantha Leah releases soulful new single expectations, it features Algerian singer/songwriter Djouher. Their vocals go with the music. The song has dynamic guitar riffs, unique percussion, and a guest appearance from a most regal grand piano and saxophone. Expressive, yet calm. Pretty catchy tho.
The message in the song can best be described with Samantha and Djouher’s own lyrics performed in the hook: “I can’t live up to your expectations, simply because I don’t want to.” This is a testament to responding to pain and sorrow with strength and coming to terms with the fact that it is impossible to live up to others’ expectations… and that’s OK.
Listen to expectations below. It’s just different. Perfect for a Sunday!
