Dixie D’Amelio’s “One Whole Day” is a Lyrical Masterpiece
Dixie D’Amelio and sister Charli D’Amelio face hate every single day for being themselves. Charli rose to fame in just a few months and is now one of the biggest influencers out there, at just 17. Her older sister, Dixie, decided to tag along and move out to LA to start a career of her own.
Dixie released her first single under HITCO in 2020, and received backlash from day one. “Be Happy” became an international meme, and it only got worse from there. Her second single “One Whole Day” featuring Wiz Khalifa received backlash for the lyrics. Despite being a catchy song, people were quick to point out the repetitive and childish lyrics, and a lot of hate was geared towards Dixie, even though she didn’t write the song.
I’ll give you a chance to listen to the song and view the lyrics before reading further.
So the song is about a past relationship where one person wasn’t putting in the same effort as the other. People have speculated that the song is about Dixie’s ex, Griffin Johnson, who was accused of cheating back in 2020. Reading in to the lyrics, Dixie seems pretty sad about the situation and explains how she was “really, really, really, really, sad” for one day.
I can see why the lyrics seem childish on the surface, but when you really start to think about the situation and realize the sarcasm behind the whole song, you’ll be able to recognize its genius. The whole song is a mockery of an ex and Dixie is singing about how she was only sad for one day, but now she’s over it. She only shed one tear while throwing your shit in the fireplace. A completely ironic storyline like this is rare in pop music, and unfortunately listeners overlooked the pure genius of “One Whole Day”.
Dixie could’ve made it more obvious that the whole song was sarcastic. Take Taylor Swift’s “This Is Why We Can’t Have Nice Things” for example. In the bridge of the song, she makes a sarcastic comment, but follows it up with a laugh and says, “hahah I can’t even say it with a straight face”, indicating to listeners that the line was ironic. Dixie could’ve added some elements that highlighted the irony of the song, and the lack of said elements made listeners misunderstand the storyline.
Is it possible I am looking way too far into things and am completely off? Yes. Maybe Dixie was “really, really, really, really, sad” for one day and just had to break out in song and unleash her emotions.
I still stand with my statement that “One Whole Day” is a lyrical masterpiece. It isn’t a song about heartbreak, but rather empowerment.
