Review: "Winners" - Estella Dawn
Estella Dawn’s inspiring confidence shines bright in her latest single, “Winners”. The energetic track is about embracing the parts of you that make you unique. In Dawn’s own words, she says that “this is a put your oxygen mask on before helping others” song. She admits that sometimes, to be successful, you have to believe in yourself, even if that means putting yourself above others. She emphasizes that self-preservation is an important aspect in becoming who you are meant to be. The fiery track is filled with uplifting lyrics that encourage listeners to have confidence in themselves. The hook is found in the bridge as she sings, “My momma didn’t raise no quitter, I’m a winner, baby.” This line highlights Dawn’s natural instinct to fight back against the negativity, and proudly proclaim that she was born to be great.
“Winners” is an infectious track that takes the soulful sounds of jazz and blends it with modern pop to create an unforgettable track. The song begins with a steady drum complimented by the guitar that introduces the unique production. The audience is already mesmerized, even before Dawn’s sultry vocals takes the beauty of the track to a whole new level. Her powerful voice perfectly matches the musical style, further emphasizing her phenomenal talent. Once the bridge begins, the production slows down and Dawn’s powerhouse vocals take the driver’s seat. She takes this moment to show off her extraordinary range and intense vocal control. With “Winners”, Dawn guarantees her spot in the next generation of multi-talented superstars.
