Review: "Sugar" - Chris James

If you’re hoping to add a sweet song to your playlist, “Sugar” by Chris James is the one for you. His new energetic tune will lift your spirits and put you in a cheerful mood that lasts all day. “Sugar” is about the relief you feel after getting through a tough time and feeling grateful that you're in a better place than you were before. Chris got over his rough patch and gave us a cheery song to show for it. If you're going through a tough time, "Sugar" is a reminder that better days are ahead, and you might feel a stronger appreciation for the good after living through the bad. The song expresses a positive outlook on life, looking at the bright side of things to keep an optimistic perspective. The positivity radiating throughout “Sugar” is so genuine and infectious that it could excite your sweet tooth.

“Sugar” is the kind of song you expect to hear on the radio because of its clean production and exciting melody. There is no beginning instrumental, so the song captures your attention instantly. Chris James immediately jumps onto the track, raw vocals and all. He eagerly spreads his infectious energy as he sings with a charming attitude that you cannot help but love. The bouncy beat creates a feel-good atmosphere that you want to stay in. The funky uptempo mix pulls you out of your funk and invites you onto the metaphorical dance floor. The guitar captures the essence of happiness and fun. Chris gets vulnerable on the bridge and removes the fun guitar, toning down the playfulness embedded into the track. It is as if the party has slowed down, and you’re connecting with the people around you on a deeper level. The party may have dwindled, but the good vibes never end cause once you click replay, the party starts again.
