You may have noticed that, in July, Jacqueline Loor joined the IMC Family thanks to her 5th feature. And it looks like nothing can stop Jackie anymore.

It's her sixth feature with this brand-new single, which, let's be honest, is an absolute banger. From the first listen... big crush. From my 20 years in the radio industry, I've learned one important thing: If a catchy chorus comes in before the 40-sec mark, it's won, the song has all the potential to become a hit. This is the case with "I Can Fly".

Jackie got us used to very cinematic songs, so it's no surprise to have such power and emotion in this new single, but the novelty is the brightness. The artist was until then in a rather dark universe, where the lyrics were imbued with nostalgia and bad memories. 

For me, "I Can Fly" is the rebirth song for Jacqueline Loor. Like a new chapter that opens. Filled with optimism, the artist recalls the chain of relationships that did not help her move forward, and she is now savoring newfound freedom. I have always loved women empowerment songs and I have to admit that she's an expert in it.

With some electronic elements, but less present than in her previous releases, "I Can Fly" benefits from a more organic orchestration, with magnificent piano chords, and a beautiful accompaniment on the acoustic guitar. The vocal harmonies are once again very successful, and the whole inevitably triggers the thrill.

Sometimes I love to let myself think of someone who would discover Jacqueline Loor for the first time. This may be your case. And I imagine the reaction of wonder one can have when one hears such a jewel of creativity. Because if this is the first time that you hear Jackie, you will see that she has a gift that many artists do not have: she is able to reproduce this "wow" effect with each song. And each time a little stronger.

As she says in the chorus, "Nothing's gonna stop me". We understood that well. And that suits us perfectly. Let this magnificent bird fly away and admire its flight.

Lyrics

Ah, here we go again

Same mess, different men.

Why you gotta paint everything black

When the world's got our back?

Why do I play this game?

Feeling a bit insane

Neva neva gonna make you change

But I can change my ways

Losing sleep not anymore

Feeling stronger than before

Seeing things clearly

No on eis gona hold me down, watch me soar

I can fly on my own

I can fly

I can fly

Nothing's gonna stop me

Nothing's gonna stop me

I can fly on my own

Now I know, live and learn

Dead ends, twisted turns

I can see now what I'm really worth

Nothing's gonna stop this girl

Losing sleep not anymore

Feeling stronger than before

Seeing things clearly

No on eis gona hold me down, watch me soar

I can fly on my own

I can fly

I can fly

Nothing's gonna stop me

Nothing's gonna stop me

I can fly on my own

Watch me, watch me

I'm free

I can fly on my own

I can fly

I can fly

Nothing's gonna stop me

Nothing's gonna stop me

I can fly on my own (I can fly, I can fly)

I can fly on my own
