This is the story of a man who knows he’s not destined for just monotonous things. This is the story of a man who wants to ascend to his highest point. British-Jamaican singer REGALJASON’s “Ascend” is a powerful anthem for those who want to be more than just average. This is what he had to say about the song:
As an independent artist, I face many obstacles in my journey to let my voice be heard. When releasing my debut EP Megafauna, besides writing, producing, directing, and more, I also had to monitor the data, a task I found to be in opposition to my artistic process. Constantly checking figures such as likes, streams, and views, among other things, took a toll on my creativity. I also found it hard to find my footing in the digital arena especially with my sound being heralded as genre-less and inventive. “ASCEND” is my response to the emotions I felt during this time. I had to make a choice to own my individuality and promise myself that I will continue the climb regardless of the “figures” that might tell me otherwise.
