Several years ago I wrote #TRY in the kitchen/living room of my cozy rental apartment.
VERY Shortly after that my landlord gave me notice 🤦🏾♀️😂
I can smile now… but if you were on my IG Live on Friday you would have heard one of our team members tell you how crazy this was. One day she’s working from my home and I’m writing this song talking about ‘rent and being out of luck’… then it happened.
Anyway, I started to perform TRY live both in Jamaica and overseas on tour to “test” it out – I wanted to see how the audiences would responded to it. 👍🏾
Around that time Patrick Lindsay ( my manager) decided that it was TIME to make the album. So we reached out to the legendary Dean Fraser to help us with this production for this version.
The song was recorded, mixed and sat on one of my hard drives ‘unreleased’ for a long time ….
Now 8 years later, after much prayer for clarity and direction I was instructed to release 3 songs. This is #2 and NOW is it’s TIME.
So this is me moving in faith into the next chapter of musical unknowns BUT I completely TRUST God with this one.
And like the song says gotta #TRY#TRY #TRY can’t give up the fight.
Long as the world keep spinning
I’m still standing
The sun must rise again
Everyday’s a new beginning
This race called living
One day we’ve got to win
#TRY would not have been possible without these incredibly talented people who helped us bring this to life
