Review: "I Got You" - Devon Cole

Ring in the summer season with an energetic ode to best friends. Devon Cole’s latest single, “I Got You”, is a sweet song about the joys of having a wholesome friendship and always being there for your friends. However, Cole admits this song is more aspirational than reflective. She has a history of not being the most responsive or present friend, wishing she could be the girl in her song. She recognizes that her friends deserve better— someone who will always be there to listen. Throughout the track, introspective lyrics take listeners on a journey of unconditional friendships. From holding their hands and giving them a shoulder to cry on, to taking them out to drink and blasting music out the car, the girl in the song gives her friends an insight of who she hopes to be. And Cole admits that “I Got You” opened her eyes and pushed her to work on being better. She shares that her amazing friends are all “hilarious, intelligent, and iconic.” She cherishes them wholeheartedly, and as a result, she has crafted a song that resonates with close friends everywhere.

Cole consistently releases captivating and infectious tracks that stick with listeners. Alongside the meaningful lyrics, “I Got You” contains an upbeat soundscape that effortlessly boosts the audience's mood. The song upholds Cole's signature style, blending pop, alt-indie, funk, and country to create this distinctive sound. The track kicks off immediately with her stunning vocals, quickly met by the bouncy instrumentation that guides the listener through the cheerful lyrics. The acoustic guitar strum style is reminiscent of reggae, providing a beachy element to the production. This enhances the imagery of friends blasting the song while driving along the coast in the summertime. Paired with Cole's sweet and compelling voice, listeners cannot help but be in a cheerful, happy mindset while they sing along to the song. From production to lyrics, "I Got You" contains all the right ingredients to become the next big hit of the summer season.
