Born and raised in Houston, Texas, Mawa Keita is a talented multi-faceted singer-songwriter and producer of African (Guinea) origins. She beautifully mixes Pop, Afrobeats, and R&B to create a sonic atmosphere that delicately takes its listeners on a journey through her mind, and its myriad of complex emotions. Motion starts with synths, and when the guitar and drums kick in, they grab the listener's attention immediately. Though instrumental is catchy and happy, the song contains very powerful meaning: here Mawa talks about the unrequited love. The lyrics is full of pain of lost love, especially these lines: - It is impossible, to mend this by distance It is impossible, we wont fix this by silence And I guess, the only reason why I'm still in this Wishful thinking, hoping maybe, you haven't forgotten
Many people, who passed through the breakup with the person you love, can relate to this song. Mawa’s powerful vocals and unique style make listeners pay attention to the song’s meaning. The song gives listeners over 4 minutes of enjoyment because of the whole mood of the track and carefully written lyrics, that makes this track a perfect example of a great pop track.
To sum up, Motion is an amazingly catchy song that will stay on repeat for a long time.
