“With Valentine’s Day just passing February 14, this is the perfect song to digest.

“This is also the perfect timing to have HIV awareness, because so many people in the world is going into a period of love-making, which comes with Valentine and unprotected sex.

“If everyone was conscious and had fears about HIV, we would not have so many health issues in our lives.”

HIV can be spread by contact with infected blood and from illicit injected drug use of sharing needles. It can also spread from mother to child during pregnancy and breast feeding.

There are 38 million people worldwide living with HIV or AIDS. In the case of Jamaica, some 27,000 people are living with HIV.

“Don’t take chances, you might regret the day. Having irresponsible sex can also lead to another unplanned child.”

“I always wanted to do a HIV project which is linked to music. AZEE’ a record producer, told me about this (HIV project). I was interested because I knew the world was waiting for something like this.

“AZEE’ sent me a a demo of the song and the number of artistes on the project. All I had to do was to fit my part of the combination.

“For my part, it took about 30 minutes to write, recorded at Marvin studio on Red Hills Road.

“On hearing the complete song I knew it would be a chartbuster, if given full media support.

“I started sending the song to a lot of radio stations following the release.

“We have been getting great feedback and is considering a music video as this will cement the quality of the song.”
