Entirely self-produced by Akroyd himself, the songcaptures completely what the title infers. Utter positivity. The songis fast tempo-ed and with nostalgic filled instrumentation, party-
inducing trap hip hop percussion, R&B influenced vocal harmonies andlyrics that are care-free but delivered with intention and purpose. Thelyrics are humorous coupled with bittersweet memories. Referential butpersonal at the same time. Akroyd provides yet another catchy track forlisteners.
“I came up with the song when I was in the car listening to one ofAllday’s tracks. For some reason, I was feeling really happy. Icompletely ignored the rapping and was just freestyling really loudlyover the top of the beat that was playing and I really liked what I wasable to do over such a groovy beat. I also kept laughing about all theseabsurd things I came up with that I felt like I could do that day. There theconcept was born.” – Liam Guinane, Akroyd Smart
“I wanted to create a beat that sounded exactly like what I was talkingabout and feeling” – Liam Guinane, Akroyd Smart
