Hem­press Sa­tiva to ‘Fight For Your Rights’

Re­leases sin­gle to com­mem­o­rate 86th coro­na­tion of Haile Se­lassie I

Jamaica Gleaner - - ENTERTAINMENT -

AHEAD OF her Jan­uary 7, 2017 re­lease date of the long-awaited al­bum, Un­con­queREBEL, fe­male reg­gae artiste Hem­press Sa­tiva has de­cided to re­lease her lat­est sin­gle, Fight For Your Rights, to­day in com­mem­o­ra­tion of the 86th Coro­na­tion of H.I.M and H.I.H Haile Se­lassie I and Em­press Me­nen.

Pro­duced by Con­quer­ing Lion Records and Mixed by The Orig­i­nal Dub Mas­ter, ‘Sci­en­tist’, the sin­gle will be dig­i­tally dis­trib­uted by Zo­jak World­Wide and is avail­able for pur­chases on itunes https://itunes.ap­ple.com/sz/alb um/fight-for-your-rights-sin­gle/id1167015708 as well as 7” 45 RPM vinyl at www.buyreg­gae.com.

Sa­tiva takes time out to ‘edu­tain’ through her strong lyrics which speak to the rich black his­tory, her­itage and legacy that is many times dis­missed.

“In a time when few are coura­geous enough to speak out about the vary­ing in­jus­tices ex­pe­ri­enced by peo­ple of African de­scent around the world, it is truly an hon­our to in­tro­duce Fight for Your Rights – a stance, a chant for us to re­claim in­tegrity and pride, through self-knowl­edge and love that we may be proud of our skin and our royal her­itage,” ex­pressed Hem­press Sa­tiva.

Per­form­ing since age 13, Hem­press Sa­tiva has since been hon­ing her skills as a pro­lific artiste whose ver­sa­til­ity is ev­i­dent in her lyri­cal de­liv­ery, switch­ing styles from singer to Dj, with her fast-chat­ting rhymes. Her Rasta­fari up­bring­ing has in­flu­enced Hem­press Sa­tiva to re­main rooted in her cul­ture, as ex­pressed in songs like Judge­ment, Free­dom and Hea­thens Wage.
