“It’s about a man that goes to a party and meets his first love,” Davis said. 

This song is a high-energy melody that inspires people to get up and dance. The lyrics are mainly French and Haitian Creole with a little bit of English. The line “get on up” is repeated multiple times throughout the whole song further inviting the listener to start dancing.

“I relate to this song because I’m single and I want to be in a relationship,” Davis said. “I would also recommend the song ‘Last Friday Night’ by Katy Perry.”
