The track, infused with Sahirah's signature blend of pop and hip-hop influences, pulsates with raw vulnerability, capturing the bittersweet essence of letting go for personal growth.

Sahirah, known for her music catering to "sad girls that wanna be bad girls and bad girls that wanna be sad girls," isn't afraid to delve into the messy realities of heartbreak. 'on your own' transcends the typical breakup ballad, instead exploring the quiet strength found in recognizing when moving on, despite the pain, is the path towards healing. The song oscillates between a melancholic undercurrent and a sense of liberation, echoing the bittersweet cocktail of emotions that arise when parting ways with someone you love.

The lyrics paint a vivid picture of this emotional tug-of-war.

The song's power lies not just in its relatable theme but also in Sahirah's raw and emotive delivery. Her voice effortlessly conveys the spectrum of emotions - the ache of loss, the tentative steps towards independence, and the underlying hope for what lies ahead.

We can expect the visuals to mirror the song's themes, capturing the beauty and pain of letting go, and the quiet strength found in embracing solitude.
