Read on to know more about the track.
Better Day sounds to be an orthodox-, well crafted pop piece spilling polite/eloquent harmonies, establishing a character that invites into the mind quite a few comfortable connotations. A mixture of Motown day Jacko - Jacksons 5 - and the early Elton John vibes are prominent throughout the single, though needless to say, Junior is wise enough not to attempt to siege the naturally ultra-high vocal register of the kid-variant Michael Jackson - he instead delivers in a stable, soulful pop demeanor, courted in tasty/trusty manner by the backing presence of guest artist Jess Wood. The best solution is to check the track out for yourself at the artist's official YouTube channel.
