Following on from the success of ‘My Way’, Manchester’s meanest spitter OneDa is back with ‘Power’, a triumphant song of dignity and female finesse. Throughout the song, Oneda’s over-arching sentiment hits home, delivering her self-assurance, self-respect and self-esteem. A statement of how OneDa needs the approval of no-one and assistance of no one to realize her internal value.
Describing the track, OneDa breaks it down…
“Power is all about the strength that comes from having full belief in yourself and your abilities. Trusting and knowing who you truly are and the lack of need for justification by society.”
The production fuses a contemporary trap beat with elements of vintage dub-reggae. The old and the new sit so comfortably together that OneDa’s confident flow patterns weave in and out of the beat with ease.
A song like Power isn’t one that blends in with trends, as OneDa proudly goes against the superficial grain.
“They need justification, all I need is self-affirmations /
They forgot who they are it’s frustrating, Living in fear, creates new complications”
Lyrics like this should come as a breath of fresh air to the younger generations who are finding their own identity in life. Those who may have been under the illusion that validation comes from social media likes or which brands we feel are a necessity to fit in.
