Some voices are so raw and powerful they overwhelm the senses with their sheer force. Maiday has that type of voice. With “Wish You’d Met Me First,” the UK singer delivers a searingly emotional song about competing with another woman for a man’s affection. The song is a massive pop ode about lost love and the insecurity that arises from not being able to measure up to someone else.
From the beginning of the track, Maiday showcases her sharp tongue with the blunt line, “I wish she was a bitch.” The best part of “Wish You’d Met Me First” is the juxtaposition between Maiday’s beautiful voice and the vulgar words coming out of it. It makes for a perfect song for anyone dealing with jealousy issues after spending one too many cold nights alone. Make sure to check the track out below.
