When Drake said “no one’s coming out of my end” in his mega-hit “One Dance” in 2016, he may not have envisioned the emergence of artists like Mackenta. The singer and songwriter from Toronto, Canada is one of the hottest emerging artists in the R&B scene right now. If you want proof, check out the music video for her latest single “Hypersensitive” below.
Mackenta has been in the game for just over two years and has dropped several singles. His 2018 hit “No Finesse” is the most popular track to date. However, she is making a comeback with her 2019 single “Hypersensitive” which explains just how normal it is to feel emotional, show emotions, and be vulnerable.
Writing to Justrandomthings, Mackenta explained the meaning of his new song;
“I can’t be superficial in my relationships. If you want to get close to me, you have to be prepared to be vulnerable.
Feeling trapped inside a generation where it’s considered “cool” not to get emotional, I’m the exact opposite. “
In the song’s lyrics, Mackenta sings about how it’s okay to express feelings. Often times being vulnerable is seen as weak in this world. But this is not the case. She sings that she’s “rough around the edges” for protection, but she’s delicate on the inside.

The song is written and performed by Mackenta herself, with the production of the music video.
“And so I think I’m acting accordingly
It’s like a double-edged sword to me
Put on a shield, watch my back at night
Keep a wall against these pests
But sometimes they cut through “
Mackenta appears to be an alien, even multidimensional creature (as she states in her Instagram profile). She is seen tormented by human emotions and eventually collapses.
The take-home message from “Hypersensitive” is to always have self-confidence. Don’t let the world or negative emotions impact you. If you are a hypersensitive being, be it. There is nothing that someone can do to you when you are wearing your emotions like your armor. Make your weaknesses your armor and no one can use them against you.
Considering how the authenticity of “popular” music degrades at a rapid rate in modern music, songs like these are rare gems. We look forward to more raw lyrics and music from these artists this year.
Let us know what you think of this new Mackenta single and music video. Join us in wishing him a happy new year 2019.
