Review: "Drama Queen" - Sophia DeLeo

In what seems to be a note-to-self, ‘Drama Queen’ by Sophia DeLeo sings to an angsty 17-year-old to remind them that someone loves them. Lyrics highlighting personal details such as after-school routines and a romantic relationship imply that DeLeo is wishing someone would’ve given her this advice at that age. Regardless, the single provides comfort and solace to anyone at any age experiencing self-doubt.

Folky instrumentals give ‘Drama Queen’ a different sound than most new pop heard nowadays. The song has simple production which allows for Sophia DeLeo’s ethereal vocals to stand out. Though it has a wistful sound, the lyrics are hopeful and encouraging making the single an easy-listening, feel-good tune.

DC native Sophia DeLeo began her ambitions towards a career in performing from a very young age. Her childhood consisted of self-taught guitar sessions, dance classes, and vocal lessons all while attending school. After receiving her BFA in Musical Theater, she moved to New York where she’s been busy working in various plays while writing, recording, and releasing her own music. The contemporary pop artist has steadily released a slew of singles to stream and is currently putting out her second EP.
