Francis Davila’s newest track called “Good Times” brings the lyrics of the song to the forefront, with a message of positivity for the entire world to live by. This feel-good, radio-ready anthem redefines the popular acronym “YOLO” (You Only Live Once), morphing the informal definition from “living on the edge” to living a life of happiness. With lyrics including “I don’t want to fight no more” and “just want to live my life right”, “Good Times” emulates PLUR (Peace Love Unity Respect), the motto of the EDM world.
A few years ago, he released a track called “We Can Do Anything” that empowered his fans to be strong, so creating another song that can inspire and motivate fans to find happiness makes complete sense. The vocals are simple and clear as to not overpower any one element of the song, and the slower BPM gives this song a festival vibe with commercial appeal instead of a nightclub superhit.
After eighteen years in the music industry and counting, Francis Davila is a master at his craft and knows how to deliver what the masses want to hear. The EDM scene in Latin America was fairly new when he arrived, and his music has influenced the transformation of the genre over the years since.“Good Times” is the happy song you sing as loud as you can when it is played, and the song you put on when you need to remind yourself and your friends that happiness is easiest to come by when you are having fun.
