LAETITIA SAM – “My Turn” – A Nod to the Classics with a Modern Twist

Man, let me tell you, it’s been a hot minute since I’ve heard something that really took me back and pushed me forward all at once. But LAETITIA SAM, with her latest track “My Turn,” did just that. It’s like she’s channeling the spirit of the greats – think Stevie Nicks‘ raw authenticity – and melding it with the zest of today’s country pop scene. And let me tell you, it’s a breath of fresh air.

Right from the get-go, with that slick guitar slide leading into a groove that just won’t quit, you know you’re in for a ride. The guitar riff that follows? Pure rock ‘n’ roll, but with a twist that’s all LAETITIA. It’s got that power country pop rock vibe, but there’s something undeniably classic about it, like a nod to the legends who paved the way.

And then there’s LAETITIA’s voice. Oh, man, her voice. It’s got that power and punch that you might find in Reba McEntire’s belt or Dolly Parton’s twang, but there’s a soulful quality to it that’s all her own. It’s passionate, sure, but there’s an ease to it that makes you feel like you’re just sitting back and listening to stories from an old friend.

The track itself is a rollercoaster, man. It hits hard, with a beat that makes you wanna nod along, and then there’s that cowbell cutting through the mix, adding a bit of edge that’s just killer. And when LAETITIA hits that vocal break in the chorus, you can’t help but feel it in your bones. It’s like she’s declaring it’s her time, and the band’s right there with her, making sure you hear it loud and clear.

But what really got me was the fiddle. Yeah, you heard me, an epically aggressive fiddle in a track that’s already bursting at the seams with rock and country vibes. It weaves through the song like it’s dancing, celebrating right there with LAETITIA. And when it takes center stage halfway through the track, man, it’s like a moment of pure magic.

The lyrics, too, they’re something else. They speak to that fight, that drive to chase every dream, no matter the odds. It’s a story of resilience, of not letting anyone dim your light, and it’s told with such conviction that you can’t help but believe it.

LAETITIA SAM‘s bringing something special to the table, man. She’s mixing the old with the new, paying homage to the legends while carving out her own spot in the modern music scene. And “My Turn”? It’s more than just a song. It’s a statement. It’s LAETITIA SAM standing up and saying, “Hey, it’s my time now.” And if this track is any indication, we’d all do well to listen up. Because if she’s bringing this kind of heat, I can’t wait to see what’s next.
