Catt McCreary’s ‘Got Me Good’ is our new favorite song– Hands down. If you haven’t heard of the Atlanta-based, independent recording artist, we urge you to check her out, and we fully support you starting with this hit! Because that’s exactly what ‘Got Me Good’ is– A hit. Here’s why we believe so!
We Hear Top Pop Influences
Reflected in her previous work, Catt McCreary is an artist who blends pop, hip-hop, and soul, mixing the sounds of Justin Bieber, Doja Cat, Charlie Puth, Rico Nasty, Ariana Grande, and Lizzo. ‘Got Me Good’ opens with pizzicato heard in the strings over what sounds like the scratching of a record. Her voice then cuts in as the track shifts into a melody reminiscent of the Biebs off Purpose and Changes, dropping drippy beats and reverberating synthesizers.
When the chorus rolls around, the energy shifts delivering staccato vocals with the lines “You shoulda, coulda, woulda given me a chance/ If I hadn’t gone and stopped you in your tracks,” emulating the same hip-hop-Esque feel from Ariana Grande’s ‘7 Rings.’ The message of ‘Got Me Good’ which centers the hypocritical doings in her life and breaking free from them, reminds us of the commanding lyrics from Lizzo, and we so relate. She’s emotional yet strong, like a true queen! We just gave Catt McCreary her own throne!
Before the track dwindles to a close, it shifts again as the rest of the instrumentals drop out, except for the echoing synthesizer, showcasing Catt’s powerful and raw vocal abilities. Her voice also a warmth to it, we might add, that washes over us. We’re not surprised her command to flawlessly reach to a higher range, but we’re still in awe!
We’re Putting This One On Repeat
Overall, ‘Got Me Good’ is robust that offers interesting sounds that interweave between several sections through the track. Though Catt demonstrates her ability to mix in all her influences, she still achieves the ability to make her own sound and a fresh look into the direction of pop music! Her voice alone is a force, and we love it!
We honestly can’t wait to hear more from her. After hearing ‘Got Me Good,’ we can understand why her last single ‘Hardball’ brought her success, reaching over 40k streams! We can clearly see this trajectory continuing with this new singe! Don’t mind us; we’re just going to keep our headphones on and put this one on repeat, belting out those lyrics with her!
