NEW MUSIC | ROYAL (@itsroyalsworld) ‘POWER’


Roy­al is embark­ing on a new chapter of his music­al career with the release of his latest video for ‘Power’.

Upbeat rhythms are jux­ta­posed with soft synths and ambi­ent vocal samples, which in turn are con­tras­ted with Roy­al’s own deep bari­tone vocals.

The gen­er­al theme in the lyr­ics to ‘Power’ is that once you real­ise that you have the power to change the world around you, not tomor­row but right now, the world becomes your oyster. The theme is remin­is­cent of Roy­al’s pre­vi­ous single ‘Bring Me Down’, which also focused on self empower­ment and reflect­ing on a past where things were not exactly going his way.

Roy­al has exper­i­enced his fair share of highs and lows, hav­ing enjoyed suc­cess with his former group Kings of the City who col­lab­or­ated with Klash­nekoff, toured with Mav­er­ick Sabre, and were inter­viewed by the likes of Charlie Sloth and Zane Lowe.

Although the band came to a tra­gic end in 2013, fol­low­ing the passing of their lead vocal­ist, Roy­al’s solo effort is a test­a­ment to the fact that what does­n’t kill you can indeed make you stronger.

With its uplift­ing mes­sage and ener­get­ic vibes, ‘Power’ is being released at a time when it is much needed in a music industry where the poor men­tal health of musi­cians all over the world has been put in focus.

“This song means a lot to me. It encap­su­lates everything I’ve been through and everything I have become, yet still high­light­ing the improve­ments that need to be made in my life. I came out of a depress­ive state to feel­ing power­ful. #Power ”

The fol­low­ing two tabs change con­tent below.
