It's fun, calm, soothing, groovy, and quite catchy - his influences of John Mayer and The Beatles shine brightly here and it does not disappoint.

A major highlight in the video and song is when the main guitar solo kicks in and in the video show Sooraj standing up to management and becoming more than just another role to play and moving on to being someone he wants to be.
“I walk on the Hollywood Walk of Fame every day and all I
step on are pink stars on the boulevard. I thought to myself, is this the pinnacle of
fame – to have a star on the boulevard and have people walk over you? That was what
sparked the writing of this song.” - Sooraj
