Pop Artist CAPPA Drops Electric New Bop "I Do"
CAPPA makes bops. There’s no way around it, no fancy way of saying it — it’s just true. Song after song, over the past few years, the Los Angeles singer-songwriter continues to deliver the kind of high-volume, dance-inducing, hook-heavy anthems meant for the repeat button.
Her latest effort, “I Do,” accomplishes just what we love about CAPPA — it’s electric, vibrant, and it bursts with color, but it wanders into more tender territory than we’ve gotten previously from CAPPA.
“‘I Do’ is a slight departure from my previous singles because it is a little more emotional and raw lyrically,” CAPPA explains. “I wrote it after going through a pretty bad breakup. It’s about knowing that you shouldn’t take someone back and [knowing that] you should be able to walk away from it but for some reason you can’t.”
“I Do” thrums with a rapid-fire synth base, like it’s powered by an electrical current, propelled forward by its own sheer force. CAPPA’s sweet voice comes in quick, floating softly like she’s letting us in on a secret — confirmed when she whispers “Don’t say a thing” and continues to deliver her most sincere lyrics yet, a confession of the heart, “I don’t want to love you anymore.” The subject matter hurts — it’s relatable, it’s real, it’s raw — but it’s embedded in such a fizzy electro-pop composition that we hear the light and the dark of “I Do.” The song is cathartic in both its truth and its mirth. An eruption of sugary pop beats, it’s one of CAPPA’s most heart-hugging anthems yet.
