Vira returns to her more jazz self, compared to her previous two releases “Mejikuhibiniu” and “Samba Di Kota” when she begins the song romantically accompanied by piano and jazz guitar melodies. The song continues with the atmosphere and narration as if we can finally meet our loved ones after a long and tiring day.
With Vira’s soft vocals that sound familiar, making it seem as if she is returning to her old self when she released her first EP, expressing love not through complicated narratives, but by creating a space to make us feel what it feels like to fall in love in our own world.
“Like It Was Meant To Be” becomes a song about a long-awaited love that has finally arrived. We’ve all had a bumpy ride in a love relationship. Through this song, Vira wants to show how it feels to get certainty from loved ones. Feelings of comfort, happiness, and satisfaction because we have someone we know will always accompany us.
