RIVER – “HAPPY FOR YOU” music video
“Listen, babe, it’s been a while since you left me high and dry. Should have known better than letting you f*** with my mind. Yet you keep me up all night wondering where the hell am I. Don’t you worry about how I spend my time? I see that you found you another, but that b*tch ain’t me. She don’t look like I do and I bet she don’t make you happy. You thought that things would get better, I’m happy for you. So quit texting my phone saying can I come home. Hell no!” – lyrics
‘HAPPY FOR YOU’ tells a heartfelt tale about a young woman who finds out that her significant other has obtained a brand new lover. Apparently, she’s hurt by the bad news, and heartbroken, but she should have known better than letting her partner manipulate her mind into thinking she was the only one. After a while, she realizes that she’s better off on her own and it feels good not having to put up with her ex’s lies anymore. Out of the blue, she finds out that her former partner wants to come back home after realizing that the grass isn’t always greener on the other side. In a nice way, she tells her sorry ex, “Whenever you’re in town, don’t bother coming around. I got one million things that I would rather do than getting with you.”
‘HAPPY FOR YOU’ contains a relationship-based narrative and ear-pleasing soul vocals that will resonate well with music lovers who are into relationship drama. The emotional tune possesses groovy bass and thudding drum-laden instrumentation flavored with retro soul and contemporary R&B elements. Furthermore, “HAPPY FOR YOU” follows mildly on the heels of RIVER’s previously released single, entitled, “WE’LL BE TOGETHER.”
“You thought that things would get better, I’m happy for you.”
“‘HAPPY FOR YOU’ is an uplifting song about going through pain in a relationship and female empowerment.” – RIVER stated
RIVER grew up listening to Billie Holiday, Etta James, and Elvis Presley. She has never been one to settle for the conventional when it comes to her creativity and lifestyle. From globetrotting Asia to San Francisco to Mexico, the Stockholm native has been leading a nomadic life. For a while, she has been busking and performing in various cities while honing her own craft.
