Kay Soul - "Gotta Go"

Review by Victoria Scott & Staff

"Gotta Go," is an inspiring R & B song by Kay Soul. Synthesized electronic vocals and a hip-hop backbeat introduce the first verse. The booming sub-bass and the subtle rap cadence are enhanced by Kay's soulful, dynamic and electrifying vocals. Her lyrics highlight her inspiring message about being the best you can be. The production by Erik "Mr. Doublebeats" Ficklin emphasizes Kay's inspirational message by focusing on the soulful harmonies in the vocals.

Move forward and don’t listen to the haters and the naysayers. “Gotta Go” is about letting your light shine and hustling until you achieve your goal. Her message is about not caring about what others say; you have to let your light shine because no one can’t stop you from expressing your greatness. You’ve worked hard to get where you are, and no one can’t take that from you. As Kay sings the chorus:

“I been grindin to the top. I gotta go, I’m leaving now, I gotta go. Move forward now, and you can’t stop my flow. Can’t stop my vibe Can’t stop my shine It’s just my time. No, you can’t stop my flow. Can’t stop my vibe. Can’t stop my shine. It’s just my time.”

Kay Soul is an excellent songwriter and her performance is heartfelt and insightful. Her style is dynamic and unique with vocals that draw you in and keep you hooked. She is a driven and passionate artist, and her lyrics resonate deeply. “Gotta Go” is upbeat and unconventional, with its hip-hop beats, R & B instrumentation, and Kay’s bold vocals and uplifting message. In "Gotta Go", there's only one direction that Kay Soul is going and that is to the top of her goals.
