Review: “Let Me Go” - Nikki White
If you are anything like me, you have at some point in your life experienced the aching feelings of anxiety and depression. Usually, I tend to gravitate towards music that could potentially send me into a downward spiral, hoping that all of the negative energy will drain out of me at once so I can get on with my day. However, sometimes a song will come along that will make me feel empowered and worthy. “Let Me Go” is the latest single by singer and songwriter, Nikki White, and it has honestly changed a lot of my views on what kind of music I listen to and when. This song and the message behind it are so immensely special. White wrote “Let Me Go” to act as a sort of anthem to uplift, empower, and inspire anyone who may be struggling with self-doubt, toxicity, anxiety, depression… you name it!
It’s been a while since I have heard a song that has resonated so well with me. There are a few upbeat moments in the song that really helped to break up some of the deeper lyrics. However, I feel the real star of the show was White’s voice. From the second she sang the first word, I was drawn into the beauty of White’s vocals. She has a slight rasp to her voice, and it really helped me to interpret all of the emotions in her words. I have not heard a voice quite like Nikki White’s in quite a while. It’s unique, and it’s going to take her very far.
Nikki White, a Canadian-based singer and songwriter, has been creating her own music since 2021. She only has three songs released so far, but each of them is incredibly powerful in its sounds and messages. Her debut, “Under My Skin,” paved the way for the future of her career. White’s music all has a similar overarching theme: combining a dark message with upbeat pop beats. With each song she releases, White hopes that, as she conquers her demons through her art, she can help others tame theirs as well. Nikki White is new to the scene, but it doesn’t take a genius to figure out that she is going to go really far in this industry. I personally cannot WAIT to hear what she releases next.
