Over the last few months, Renee Blair has released singles, alternative acoustic tracks, a collaboration with RVSHVD and a debut EP The Ones to Slow Dance To, which seemingly widened the spotlight under this upcoming female country artist. Though, “Girlfriend”, her July 2019 single release, initially launched a career for Blair in the music industry by being her first song to reach one million streams.
Now, Blair has released a new single “Soon As I’m Happy”, which suggests one’s journey to happiness, however, after listening to the song, the lyrics refer to the emotion as being just that; an emotion. Happiness is much more complicated and intricate than simply opening its doors. The tricky thing is that the door has a loose doorknob that lets other emotions inside its walls. Sadness, loneliness, anxiety, helplessness, and it can seep into experiences and people from your past.
“I’m out there on the town having the time of my life / Walking taller, feeling higher than I have in awhile / You gotta rain down on my parade now / As soon as I, soon as I, soon as I, soon as I / Go and find somebody that I actually like / No, I don’t ever think about you, boy that’s when you decide / You wanna hold me, you gotta have me / As soon as I soon as I, soon as I, soon as I’m happy”
“Soon as I’m Happy” is, at its core, a break-up song. Still, at the same time, there is a happy overtone with a clear dynamic of moving on and, finally, being happy again. There are three, arguably four, personalities present whereas each accomplishes a different emotion. Past figures and experiences generally inflict heartache, while current times release a freeing, bright recovery.
In November, Blair was titled one of the CMT ‘Next Women of Country’, which has only fueled the fiery heart and drive that Blair possesses. And, “Soon As I’m Happy” is one of the many projects fans will hear from the singer-songwriter that showcases that artistry.
