Karma describes how manipulating others can backfire and leave you more lonely than the people you tried to hurt. Cam M. wrote this song after finding out about a false rumor that had caused her to lose a lot of her friends. She wanted to send a message to anyone who might be considering doing something like that: “Don’t do it, it’s not worth it.”
Manipulating others can have some pretty major consequences. For one, it can actually leave you lonelier than the people you tried to hurt. When you try to control or deceive someone, you’re essentially shutting yourself off from them. You’re no longer able to have an honest, open relationship with them—instead, you have to maintain this false persona. It’s a lot of work, and it’s really tiring. Plus, it’s hard to keep track of all the lies you’ve told. All of this secrecy and deception can really take a toll on your mental health, leaving you feeling isolated and alone.
Cam’s endearing honesty and vulnerability stay intact in Karma; it also features polished production that sounds amazing on both speakers and headphones alike. If you were feeling discouraged, or if there’s something happening in your life that doesn’t seem fair, this song will help remind you that what goes around comes around, and sooner or later everyone gets what they ask for!
