Hi Our Basement,
My new single “For The Love of Life” ft. Teon Gibbs paints the picture of how women of colour are mistreated in society. Women are the vital backbone of the family unit. They are the givers of life… when we disrespect them, we disrespect life.
A significant lyric is teach them to say your name the right way. When I was young, no one even tried to say my name properly. With so much history and heritage attached to these names, one shouldn’t have to beg for that common courtesy.
This song can be seen as a lesson, to be learned while at home, in the car, at work, or wherever one might find the space and time to reflect.
Thanks for listening!
