Only One

Lorine chia is definitely embracing her Queenhood in her contemporary upbeat reggae blues track “Only One”. Emphasizing the loneliness that has came over time through the winter months forcing her to look toward her own solitude for some time to  introspect the entire situation. It is hard to dwell on the former memories and impact your significant other brought  to your life. Continually reminiscing and ruminating indefinitely freezes you in a season full of barren branches and/or life growth. For you cannot move on holding onto old what if’s, and maybe’s.

The two artist feed off each others energy, igniting a burst of energy to the listeners that resonates long after the song is over. The representation of the thriving culture in Africa is necessary for American’s to see, being blinded by media for years with false representation of the motherland. Forced to believe through saturated imagery that Africa was a place of poverty and famine, a desolate land that was uninhabitable. Now through the Internet we are able to see how rich the land is and how similar the people are to our culture. Understanding that we are in separate locations but our spirits are the same.
