Cmagic5 kicks off 2021 with “The One” that completes her debut album. “The One'', perfectly summarizes Cmagic5’s sound into one track as it splices together emotional elements with effervescence and confidence. It is the perfect blend of serious and fun that brings nuance to the pop music scene. Although this track conveys bittersweet feelings of nostalgia and love, its sentiment is uplifted by a powerful dance beat that makes you feel empowered. Musically, the track begins by establishing a nostalgic atmosphere through stratospheric waves and a deep modern synth bass, followed by a haunting deal breaker arpeggio that further develops the moody ambiance. Cmagic5’s powerful vocals and heartfelt lyrics make it seem like the rest of
the track will continue to carry a darker tone, but the contemporary synth line and feature of electric guitar unexpectedly leads up to an upbeat, catchy chorus that urges you to sing along.
This break-up dance-pop anthem, paradoxically, gets you in your feels yet makes you want to dance at the same time. Cmagic5 musically demonstrates how to build and release tension in a
playful and tasteful way. The chorus is supported by lively strings and a snappy walking bassline that adds a flavour of groovy, 80’s style disco-pop. Lyrically, Cmagic5 sings about an emotional wreckage in a relationship, that emphasizes how her lover only regrets leaving
because she has moved on. The repetition of the lyrics ``You don’t get to…” signify a message of self-empowerment and the importance of self-respect. The refreshing transformative nature of the song is the perfect soundtrack for feel-good times and having a dance party, which is the best medicine for the current times we are living in.
