There’s a quote that says, “mistakes have the power to turn you into something better than you were before.” My mom is a frequent painter. When she starts a painting, she is nervous about how it will turn out. In the end, she is satisfied with her work. The same logic can be applied to our mistakes. They may seem daunting in the moment. However, when you look back on them later, all you will be able to see is the lessons you learned and how they’ve helped shape you as a person. Cooper Phillip writes about creating a “masterpiece” from the setbacks in her life.
I loved the jazzy guitar in this song. This instrumentation gives off a chill vibe. At the same time, it makes you want to get up and dance, especially on the chorus. Moreover, Phillip’s velvety voice fit the sound perfectly. Her harmonies on the chorus definitely made the song memorable. I also enjoyed her numerous Ariana Grande style runs. My favorite lyrics were, “my true colors will never fade.” Even if you make mistakes, do not lose yourself in the process. Get right back up and keep on going.
If you liked “Masterpiece,” you should check out Phillip’s equally as empowering song called “Perfectly Original.” The only instrumentation used is the piano and Phillip’s vocals. This means that you get to hear even more of the depth in her voice. My favorite lyrics in this song were, “If you doubt you’re good enough, know that you’re a diamond in the rough.” Embrace your true self! Don’t let anyone tell you different!
