While talking about the song Vasudha says, “The song ‘Happy This Way’ speaks about the importance of staying innocent throughout life and keeping the inner child alive, owning the uncertainty of life instead of feeling guilty about it.

People in their teens, twenties, and anyone full of youthful zest”. The song has a sweet aftertaste after delivering and listening to her peaceful vocal performance.
