Dakota, a former American Idol contestant, has released her new single, “So What” featuring Gareth.T. Similar to her previous single, “So What” is a lively pop song with catchy rhythms and hooky chorus that are easy to sing along to.
“So What is not caring about the crazy world we live in and focusing all attention on the person you love. In long distance relationships, people don’t get to see each other that often, so spending as much time with them as possible, even if that means missing your flight, is totally worth it. Taking risks is the fun part of a relationship and makes it even more special.” – Dakota
