Lyrics of the song are catchy and meaningful.

I was born to run, I was born for this
Whip, whip
Run me like a race horse
Hold me like a rip cord
Break me down and build me up

Dan Reynolds of Imagine Dragons talks about being driven to be where they are today. Whatever the challenges they faced, they conquered, they may have broken them up, but they rebuilt-stronger.

Whatever it takes
‘Cause I love the adrenaline in my veins
I do whatever it takes
‘Cause I love how it feels when I break the chains

The chorus o the song speaks about doing whatever it takes to be free from the shackles of this world. Now they have achieved glory, the world seems limitless. It seems freeing.

Always had a fear of being typical
Looking at my body feeling miserable
Always hanging on to the visual
I wanna be invisible

The singer says one of his biggest fears was being normal-fitting in. He wanted to step upstream. May be this is the influence we see in his music, which is so different and fresh from all other bands out there.

In conclusion, we think “Whatever It Takes” is an amazing song and a good single to spice up the hype for the release of the album.
