“Be Happy” by Dixie D’Amelio
These days it is quite common for an artist who blows up in a non-musical field of entertainment – especially if said individual is a young lady – to also take a stab at the music industry. And such is the case with Dixie D’Amelio, whom considering her TikTok following at the time of the release of this track can easily lay claim to being one of the most-popular human beings on Earth.
Now this particular song can be said to be set against the backdrop of the singer living in a culture whereas even mild depression is viewed as some sort of taboo. And it is such an ideology she is actually speaking out against. Simply put, she is telling her friends and others that she being depressed for a day is not any cause for alarm. Indeed, she basically chalks it all up to age and recognizing occasional sadness as more or less a normal part of life. So despite other people’s good intentions, if you catch her in such a mood she would rather be left alone.
“But sometimes I don’t wanna be happy”
