Moving on to his latest release, “Say Yes or Say No” is a dynamic EDM track that showcases Topps’ skills as a versatile artist. The song’s infectious beat and catchy melody draw comparisons to British musician Mnek’s style but Topps’ vocals and lyrics are uniquely his own.
Lyrically “Say Yes or Say No” is a song that deals with themes of uncertainty and the struggle to make a decision in a relationship. The song’s lyrics revolve around a protagonist who has been waiting for their partner to make a choice, but is constantly played with and left in a state of confusion.
The opening lines of the song, “I’ve been waiting from the start, through the ups and the downs, you played with my heart,” set the tone for the rest of the track. The protagonist has been waiting patiently for their partner to make up their mind but has been hurt by their indecisiveness. The song’s chorus repeats the phrase “Say yes or say no” over and over again, emphasizing the protagonist’s need for clarity and closure. The chorus read, “Say yes or say no, it’s time that your mind was made up.”
The verses of the song continue to explore the protagonist’s frustration with their partner’s indecision. Lines like “It’s time you make a choice, l’m calling your bluff” and “I’m trying to figure you out” demonstrate the protagonist’s determination to get to the bottom of the situation and move on from the uncertainty. The electronic elements of the production provide a sense of momentum and urgency that underscores the protagonist’s need for clarity and closure.
