“We Got to Love” is a solid new pop song with a lot of heart! It’s a song that encourages you to choose to love again and again, no matter what could go wrong or already has.

The Brooklyn-based singer and actress Cydney McQuillan-Grace delivers a superb vocal performance on “We Got to Love.” She balances just the right amounts of sensitivity, soulfulness and enthusiasm in her voice to make the lyrics stand out. And stand out they do, like with this, my favorite verse – ‘If we knew how it would go / When we said our first hello / Would we have done it anyway or would we stray.’ There is so much emotion in those meaningful lyrics. I got teary just typing it. And Cydney McQuillan-Grace makes those words just flow with poetic ease, all while projecting an optimistic sparkle.

I will definitely be adding “We Got to Love” to my new songs of 2021 playlist! Give it a listen and see what you think.
