​Review: I’m Choosing Me by Yazzy

Words by: Chloe Burrows-Bryan

The fierce, passionate and outstanding half Lioness, half songbird from Devon, Yazzy has entered the music industry and has notably gained a distinguished reception. With amazing achievements such as being featured on BBC1 Spotlight, BBC Introducing, Capital FM and Heart FM South West already under her belt, she’s just getting started and WHISPER are extremely excited to see what happens next.

With her new single, ​‘I’m Choosing Me’​, Yazzy has established a liberating powerful break up ballad that invites you to overcome the intimidating fear of letting someone go and immerses you completely to bring yourself at the forefront of your decisions.

This sensational song fiercely emerges with a dominant powerful pop chord structure which is beautifully presented in the piano. This chord structure is breathtakingly married by her astounding vigorous vocal melody with the deliverance of independence and empowerment at the forefront of her meaning within the song. The remarkable string accompaniment enters dominantly into the track during the first chorus and elevates the texture of the song, with significant use of word painting to connote the idea that she has chosen herself and has risen above the painful situation that has once entered her life.

The fabulous layer of vocal harmonies are stunningly sugared throughout the song and aid the vocal melody gracefully. The lyric that sounds out in this song: “’I’ll think ’bout me, you think ’bout you…go find a girl who’ll do all the things you want her to. That’s just not me and I’m not for you’,” this is bold, confident and influential. Every element of this outstanding song is polished and intertwined with one another and is carved to exhibit such an elegant narrative.

Throughout her defining career as an independent artist, Yazzy has truly found her powerful and captivating sound, performing to impressingly deliver, captivate and encourage her audience to become an empowering entity that she fully reflects as an artist. She expresses:

“It’s very relatable for me, It’s a liberating track to give you the motivation to put yourself first.”

With many festival appearances such as Glastonbury’s Pyramid Stage and Boardmasters, as well as supporting industry greats: Paloma Faith and Tom O’Dell. We hope once the pandemic is over to see Yazzy gracefully enter the stage once again as she was due to tour with Three Degrees later on in the year. Someone truly to keep an eye on.

‘I’m Choosing Me’​ is a stunning staple of a pop song the industry is in need of and is available on all streaming platforms now.
