Kingston, Jamaica (Powerhouse Global Media) Dancehall artiste Versi is speaking about the realities of life in his recently released single, “Sacrifice.” The track was produced by Darshan Records and Cawvinz Ent.
“The inspiration for this song came from the things I’ve experienced in my life and obviously this pandemic has forced anyone who wants to have a better tomorrow to make sacrifices,” he stated, “if you know me, you’ll know that I don’t usually tackle topics like the average artiste, it has to be out of the box as well as lyrical, witty and melodic.”
The official music video dropped on April 3 and was directed by Caviir Creative and D.R.Y. Shot in extreme cold weather in New York City, the scenes were captured in Roosevelt Island, Queens and Bronx. The artiste showcases his acting skills to tell a compelling story about the positive outcomes of, quite fittingly, making sacrifices. With over 100,000 views and counting, the track has set the standard for the artiste’s future projects.
“The feedback has been great so far, the internet has been going crazy over the video and people are anticipating my upcoming album. I don’t really have any specific expectations, I just work knowing that there is no limit to my music,” he said.
Currently based in New York, Versi has become a staple in the music scene for the past few years, with an impressive discography that includes songs such as “One Dream”, “Winning Streak”, “Party Yah Nice” and “My Choice.”
“I’ve seen a lot of growth in my music based on the approach I’m taking, growth in my vocals and also my understanding of the business. In terms of my materials; I think I’ve been putting good music over the years, I just wasn’t taking the best approaches or maybe some just didn’t work as fast enough but I’ve learnt from them all; they built me into the person I am now,” he expressed.
“Sacrifice” serves as the lead track on the artiste’s forthcoming EP, which is slated to drop later in the year, along with other soon to be announced projects.
“Sacrifice” is available for purchase and streaming on major digital platforms online.
