I just watched BTS footage of Worlasi’s process crafting his new song One Life which features songstress Sena Dagadu, has Qube on the boards and Six Strings for additional, well you guessed it, strings.
The track and it’s visuals officially drop tomorrow and all I can say is, anticipate!
Worlasi is real. His music is a raw expression of his feelings and that IMO, is how music should be. More importantly however, it’s challenging and insightful. It forces you to question your circumstances and leaves you wondering how you didn’t think of it before.
The biggest takeaway for me from the footage is One Life’s message to atheists; make heaven on earth; and theists, if heaven is your ultimate goal, how about a practice run on earth while you can and also leaving a slice of heaven behind for your descendants.
I think most people with heaven as their end goal tend to detach from present realities to the point where they care very little or not at all about the world (think the Crusaders and Jihadists) and Worlasi beautifully conveys this.
There’s also the message about making the best out of our lives, taking risks, making our time alive worth it. We do after all, have just one life to make things happen. Your choice.
I haven’t yet heard the song but I imagine it’s gonna be overflowing with even more wisdom and introspection Worlasi seems to cough out easily each time.
UPDATE: I originally wrote that the song and video would premiere yesterday, April 15. Turns out it will on Monday instead. Friday was just a physical screening
