“I Am Invincible” review

Three years after being crowned the season three winner of The Voice, Cassadee Pope is back with her new single “I Am Invincible.” Although her last single debuted at 37 on the Billboard Top 100, this newest release is less than worthy of a spot on the charts. With a girl-empowering theme, and background banjo, the one thing this song lacks is originality.

Big Machine Records

“[The single] is a power anthem reflecting resilience and strength,” said Rolling Stones magazine.

However, this “resilience and strength” is nothing we haven’t already heard from fellow Big Machine Records artists like Taylor Swift and Martina McBride or fellow Voice contestants like Raelynn and Danielle Bradbery.  

The formulaic sound gives “I Am Invincible” all the qualities of the typical pop/country hit; it features a calm, melodic intro and strong, forceful chorus. This means, unfortunately, it’s inevitably catchy tune will easily become engrained in your head after you hear it on the radio.

The accompany music video is just as basic as the song itself. Alternating between flashbacks of Pope’s childhood portrayal being bullied and rising above the cruel treatment and scenes of Pope herself in an empty home, thrashing/dancing to the strong chorus, it is an ode to every early 2000s girl pop-anthem video.

Overall, “I Am Invincible” is nothing special. But that being said, expect to hear the single on every Country and Today’s Hits Radio station in the coming months.

Parkway West Pathfinder gives “I Am Invincible” a 6.5/10.
