Music that speaks on relevant issues is, in my opinion, the truest form of music. Why? Because it has the power to educate, uplift and energise people into challenging and changing their lives and perspectives. And Davina, by Baby Soul and Knucky, is a powerful ode for young women, and men, to tune into!
Knucky and Baby Soul interplay seamlessly to tell the story of a young women stuck in a toxic situation and their balance of direct and compassionate advice blend to create an insightful critique of what love and commitment should really be about. Over half of young women aged 18–21 experience domestic violence at some point and raising awareness of this is fundamental to making it stop. Davina boldly confronts the uncomfortable reality of dysfunctional young relationships whilst showing that loving support is always so close for young people to confide in; Baby Soul’s heartfelt encouragement for her girl is a direct message to all watching that a problem can be better solved with the sincere help of a good companion.
This track is just the tip of the iceberg of what Baby Soul has to offer; her earthy soulfulness makes listening to her story easy and with intelligent lyrics to boot, she’s the whole package. And Knucky’s mellow flow contains a wealth of gems that’ll make listeners have to listen again and again take on the scale of this young rappers’ talents. Society of Alumni are a force to be reckoned with and stay locked for much more from these dudes soon.
