Rising Dominican reggae artiste Aima Moses has released the first single from his upcoming studio album. The track ‘Make it One Day’ is a powerful and emotional tale which speaks about the struggles of the poor and the downtrodden.
In a release to the media, Moses outlined the story behind the autobiographical single.
‘The song is about the everyday struggle of poor people and it is meant as telling a story which will inspire people from the ghettos and the streets. I just want them to know that despite all that is happening, and through all the pain and disappointments, don’t give up, just keep pushing because we all gonna make it one day’, Moses explained.
Moses has experienced poverty first hand in the past hence the lyrics really hit home. He revealed that a lot of emotions went into the writing and recording of the song.
‘The kind of emotion that went into the writing and recording process, was an emotion of pain and still confidence’, Moses confided.
He hopes the song will serve as an empowerment to persons who see themselves in similar situations.
‘I want listeners to hear reality when they listen to the song. I want them to hear and feel what the poorer class faces every day and for those who find themselves in similar situations, to keep on striving’, Moses reaffirmed.
Make it One Day is the preview to Aima Moses’ forthcoming studio album which is still untitled. The set is being produced by Adrian ‘Donsome’ Hanson and Peter ‘Shady’ Harrison. It is expected to be released at the end of March, by Donsome Records.
‘People who have heard the song really love it because they can identify with the lyrics and it’s something they embrace as their own anthem’, Moses concluded.
If “Maket It One Day” is any indication of what is to come, I personally cannot wait to hear the rest of this album. Moses’ music is soothing to the soul while maintaining its roots reggae integrity. I love Aima Moses’ sound and hope to see him on some big stages in 2013. Shout out to Adrian over at Donsome Records. Luv Dat!
