im so happy – [Monica Riskey]

It’s only been a month since I last wrote up Brooklyn-based singer, songwriter Monica Riskey. When I found out she was releasing new music, I was excited, to say the least.

Her latest offering, “im so happy,” is a reflective ballad discussing the ups and downs of moving forward after a breakup.

With moving and relatable lyrics such as, “I’m so happy, yet so sad. All of these emotions, I don’t understand. Think I’m good, then go bad. Sent you a text, but never got one back,” Monica makes it easy for her listeners to understand where she’s coming from. We’ve all gone through a breakup, thought we had our lives figured out, and than saw a picture of our ex sending us into an emotional vortex.

Monica was able to articulate those feelings in a short, sweet 2:38 single produced by Ryini Beats. Self-engineered in her bedroom, the recent Binghamton University has seen a tremendous amount of success with her music over the last few months, and continues to have her foot on the gas.
