Sing Along

Album: Wake Up Beautiful (2015)

Songfacts®:

  • The introduction for this Irish pop song is constructed as a laid-back jam session between friends. "That intro came from my phone, actually. I was writing that song in my backyard. I was with a group of friends having the best time ever," Cabrera told Pop Dust. "There's my One Direction reference right there. [laughs] We were just hanging out, and I had this idea. I was like 'let's all just sing along to it.' We did and I recorded it on my phone. That was just me and five friends singing in my backyard."
