“i got a boy” by Hendri is an alt-pop banger that should be added to your “new music” playlists and even your “summertime” playlists. “i got a boy” is the ideal song to put you in the mood to dance at a party, and even for celebrating a relationship with someone.
This catchy track starts off with a funky bassline that was actually played by Hendri’s “boy,” Michael. The sound of a clap alongside the bass throughout the song will get your head banging and foot tapping. Hendri’s voice is also very strong and sultry. I really enjoyed listening to her voice on the bridge of this track because of how heavenly her head voice / falsetto is. Something else I enjoyed was hearing the bass play the same melody as the vocal line in the verses.
“i got a boy” features the topic of being happy in a relationship. It’s refreshing to listen to a song that celebrates love. With lyrics for example, “I got a boy / Real smart one / Knows what I enjoy,” Hendri is sharing that her partner knows her well.
Lauren Gerrish also known as “Hendri” is a singer/songwriter from Boston, but now living in Los Angeles. Besides “i got a boy,” Hendri has other songs in her discography including, “Drunk With My Friends,” and “Wasting My Time.” When Hendri isn’t writing and singing, she is also modeling and acting.
