Overall, “16” is a beautiful song with gorgeous melodies throughout— BAYLI delivers a breathtaking vocal performance and showcases her skilled songwriting skills as she bares her soul on a song dedicated to her late mother, who inspired her to be the strong woman she is today.
“’16’ tells the story of my mom, whom my family and I recently lost unexpectedly. Born an orphan in the UK, my mom immigrated to NYC from London at age 16. This song is a fast-forward through the hardships she faced in the years of her travels and the things she taught us from her experiences. It’s my first ever attempt at some type of memoir-esque writing. ’16’ is about how strong, epic and beautiful my mother is; she is the reason I know how to be a strong woman today” — BAYLI.
