Written by Ben Samama, Charlie Snyder, and Madison Watkins, while it was produced by Charlie Snyder, “Find You” is a beautiful pop ballad that really showcases this incredible singer-songwriter in the best light possible. The song starts off with subtle piano chords as Madison Watkins impresses with a strong, honest, and authentic vocal that is sure to hit every listener with chills and make sure they are listening to every word. As the backing track progresses, so do her vocals, adding emotional runs that make the listener believe her lyrics – we will find that person when we least expect it. The track stays subtle throughout, allowing Madison Watkins to shine. The lyrics delve into her belief in finding the one when she loves herself – self-love really is so important and we’re all learning to love ourselves more every day – and when she does she’ll find her one. Her powerful vocals send that same belief into the listeners, and very few artists in this world can do that, yet Madison Watkins has this skill and proves it with this awesome single “Find You”.
“I wrote this song because all of my girlfriends are waiting on our future husbands,” explains Watkins. “I did it because I wanted to give us all hope, along with the rest of the world who may be looking for their future person.”
