Monet’s single “Hold On” has island vibes and sounds like a Caribbean song. The way Monet sings the songs along with the lyrics also gives the track an island, Reggae/Soul vibe that is filled with positivity, encouragement, and light.
“Don’t worry about your future/Keep your head up and be happy/I’m telling you to hold on, don’t give up.”
Monet is encouraging anyone with a dream to keep going- don’t worry about your future, just take steps forward and be happy while doing it.
