LYRIC-BY-LYRIC: Taylor Sanders’ New Country-Pop Bop “Firecracker”

If you haven't heard your empowerment party anthem of 2022 yet, look no further. Up-and-coming singer Taylor Sanders just released her debut “Firecracker” on October 7th and the country-pop tune is insanely clever and captivating!

Listen to “Firecracker” on all streaming services here and check out a lyric-by-lyric review below.


Hangin' out at that backyard party

I was doing my thang

Guys be lookin' like "ooo now darlin', you're as hot as a flame"

Now I'm not easy to catch

My wild heart ain't so easy to tame

So anybody who gon' be with me better be bringin' that bang

Mmm… boda boom boda bang


From the first line, Sanders sets a scene we can all relate to in some capacity. Sanders knows what she’s got and she’s ready to flaunt it at a backyard party, where she catches some deserved attention. Her charisma and confidence ooze through the first verse with the singer’s sultry vocals and accompanying upbeat acoustic guitar.


I light it up big bold and loud just like the 4th of July

I'll getcha so sweaty like Kentucky on a hot summer night

I'm a heartbreakin' baby cause I'm so hard to catch

I'm a firecracker baby, could you be the match

Let's light it up

(Oh oh oh oh, light it up)

Let's light it up

(Oh oh oh oh, light it up)

Let's light it uuuup, yea

I'm a firecracker baby, could you be the match


The unforgettable hook and chorus are undeniably tight and amp up the track’s energy to 10. The subtle nod to Sanders’ home state of Kentucky is a thoughtful touch and leads into the repetitive chorus that introduces trap elements and beats to the track.


You could say I'm a real showstopper, stop you dead in your tracks

Like a spicy and red sriracha

Burn ya baby like that

Yea, I got a short fuse

I'm a baddie two-shoes

Knock 'em out of their boots

Yea, yea, yea, yea

The second verse only enhances what’s coming next. The boot-stomping tempo increases and Sanders truly transforms into an explosive voice as she compares herself (red hair and all) to spicy sriracha and a lit firecracker. Both metaphors drive home that the singer has everything it takes to catch your attention.


Big, bold, and loud just like the 4th of July

I'll getcha so sweaty like Kentucky on a hot summer night

I'm a heartbreakin' baby cause I'm so hard to catch

I'm a firecracker baby, could you be the match


With classic American pride, Sanders’ hook includes the mention of the 4th of July, which American listeners will appreciate. This section also highlights Sanders’ higher register and incredibly polished tone.


Let's light it up

(Oh oh oh, light it up) x3

I'm a firecracker baby

I'm a firecracker, fire

(Oh oh oh,)

Light it up, light it up

(Oh oh oh) x2

The chorus is back, and it’s hard to imagine a crowd sitting still listening to the insanely full-bodied country-trap melody. The addition of background vocals complements Sanders’ lead vocals perfectly and ensures listeners know which part they should sing (or scream!)


I'm a firecracker baby, could you be the match

I'mma light it up, I'mma do my thang

I'm a firecracker, it's my middle name

I'mma light it up, boda boom boda bang

I'm a firecracker, could you be the match

Let's light it up

(Oh oh oh, light it up) x3

I'm a firecracker baby, could you be the match


The wildly fun ride that Taylor Sanders takes us on in “Firecracker” promises that the singer isn’t going anywhere. With such an intriguing debut, the country world is sure to hear the fiery redhead’s voice.
