Check out this great new single from NY’s own Malachi Grant called “My Life”.
Why did you select this song as your current single?
“My Life” is a song I believe many people can relate to, the energy and message delivered is nostalgic and appreciative. Everyone goes through different experiences in life that make them who they are which makes the world go round.
How does this single relate to the rest of the Album, EP or Mix-tape?
This song serves as a starting point for the Album “Welcome 2 My World” and bridges as a turning point from the previously darker album “Just That ill.” You will be able to understand who I am better through the variety of songs on the album.
What was the writing process for the song?
For this album, I pulled from life experiences. In the studio, I selected different production that matched a feeling and it was easy to write from there.
What does this song’s lyric mean to you?
The lyrics mean a lot. “This is not a movie, this is my life”. Recognizing that you are blessed to come out of the situations that you came out of to be the person you are today. It can be surreal when you look at your humble beginnings, the adversity you had to face to make it to this point and knowing there is still more to do. But ultimately, being proud of your journey and your struggles because they are your own. Lyrics like, “living on the edge, man you should let your fear go,” only further echoes the courage to free yourself. You’d be surprise what people can obtain when fear is not a factor of their decisions.
What would it be like to see you in person performing this song?
To see me perform ‘My Life’ is to see me relive the experiences that make up the story of the song. Recapturing those moments to deliver energy and fans will feel themselves reliving their own similar moments.
Could your fans summarize who you are as an artist by this song?
I believe they can summarize who I am at my core. I am a determined individual from humble beginnings who is thankful for his blessings but focused on achieving more. A person who has overcome adversity at different levels. And dares to dream and willing to work to bring those dreams to fruition.
Is there a video planned and or completed and if so, what was the idea behind the video?
A video is in the works! Currently, I’m exploring a number of different concepts that may uniquely showcase the music and message visually. The idea is to show my fans a piece of me.
One last question, what is your motivation behind your music?
Everyday life. My music is created based on my experiences new and old. Meant to capture moments and emotions that are universal to all yet specific to my experiences.
