On “Star,” God Jani talks about some of the things that can keep us down while also discussing ways to elevate and reach our highest potential. It kind of reminds me a more-conscious Weeknd track, as it’s dark and minimalistic from a production standpoint. However, instead of focusing on the latest drugs and sexcapades, Jani tries to elevate the focus of his song while telling them not to give up their light. Even though the hook is catchy and the song has that “haunted stripper music” vibe Weeknd is known for, this one is about creating something positive out of negative situations.
Jani asks if his subject can let everything go to become their best selves. It’s a question we all come into contact with when climbing in our respective crafts. Some become stagnant and don’t evolve, some throw the wrong things away. It’s a hard journey, but one that is necessary. Check out “Star” below and remember to support dope music in all its forms.
