Her vocal delivery is outstanding and the accuracy of the lyrics also imparts brightness and glitter to the song with a feeling that invites listeners to be calm and get captivated by the song’s atmosphere. With the modest production that makes “It’s Okay” incredibly ear pleasant, the song portrays the narrative of self-frustration, like allowing oneself to be content with the way life appears to be.

This song is a very pleasurable experience. Especially with her sweet voice and the emotions and passion she has poured into her fluid and accurate performance. Featuring The Cologne Chamber Orchestra, “Greener On The Other Side,” creates a peaceful environment with the beat and presents a tale about considering changes and highlighting the worries that accompany the change. It also raises the question of whether what we envisage on the other side of change is indeed the case.
