LA-based artist and songwriter Makena’s new single, Wish I Was Her, reflects the sounds of the early 2000s. I like the way the guitar melody blends with the solid beat. Rich vocals and brilliant lyrics will have you in awe. Besides being catchy, the hook is also anthemic.
The song talks about dating in today’s world– the guy says he’s not ready to “commit” to a relationship, but in the end gets into a serious relationship with another girl. Instead of shying away from her honest feelings, Makena gets real about her jealousy, wondering why she wasn’t the one he wanted.
Makena draws inspiration from artists such as Christina Aguilera, and adds her own signature style to the mix to build a distinctive sound. Check out Wish I Was Her below!
