Inspired by a Shania Twain type of sass, “If I Wanted Your Opinion” is Michaela Anne‘s rallying cry to keep your opinions and judgements to yourself if they are critical of others. The song took shape when Michaela and her co-writer Mary Bragg started sharing experiences they’d both had of being talked down to, slights, exclusions, manipulations, expectations, etc.
“I believe one of our core desires as humans is to be seen for who we are,” explains Michaela. “This song, for me, is an attempt to share that experience with others. That feeling of being boxed in, misunderstood, exhausted by outside pressures and people telling you how to be, it is not specific to only one kind of gender, race, religion. It is a universal feeling.”
