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, 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 said.
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.
Early response to Make it One Day has been overwhelming, the artiste said.
“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.
