Sarah Potenza – “I Work for Me”

“‘I Work for Me’ is about more than just bossing up and doing for yourself. It’s saying, ‘Hey, I work for me, as in, my body, my spirit, my personality, who I am…It all works for me. ‘I Work for Me’ is my dedication to those who told me I wasn’t good enough. What I have come to know, is that what they really meant to say was, ‘How dare you believe that you can, when I don’t dare believe that I can.’ Because confidence scares people. It puts them in the awkward position of facing their own fear of success.” – Sarah Potenza communicated this evergreen message via Rolling Stone

‘I Work for Me’ contains an inspirational storyline and bold vocals. Also, the song possesses swaggering instrumentation flavored with pop, contemporary blues, and retro-soul elements.
