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. With seasons changing Lorine reminds listeners to hold on to your proper Queenhood or Kingship by strategizing and internally allow the current change to grow you and not wither your status. Remember you hold your status in life and  dictate future. Make sure you stream the video below as Ms. Lorraine Chia brings us to a place of germination….Appreciate the Art| Admire the Craft

Of course you will be after embracing the art. For the video is spoken in the Germanic language. Visually you can see the heart of New York through graffiti work. Wearing the aesthic urban clothing of the 90’s era, Ace Tee and those she connects with, can all unargumentally be seen dancing and invoking the times that we have already left behind, but still are continually inspired by.

From music, clothing, visual mediums, and language, early hip hop birthed the way for African Americans to be front and center stage in impacting not only those in America but the others around the World. Give Ace Tee a listening ear….
