In the wake of racial tension and protests for equality all around the world, there is a need for powerful voices to help bring awareness to the many injustices daily. Hailing from St. Croix, USVI, Recording Artiste Krueshef steps up to bring upliftment on his upcoming single, “We Rise Up”.
Produced by Jamaican Producer Dre Swade and released through Kohanim Records, Krueshef brings us motivational lyrics as he lets listeners know that we can do everything through The Most High if you put your trust in him, encourages listeners to pray and keep the faith as they are worth more than material things, and makes the statement that we will rise up even when there is opposition. Krueshef felt the need to take a stand in these trying times, and give the world some hope and words of affirmation. Accompanying the single, is a music video directed by Miami Film Kings that highlights the Black Lives Matter movement, and some of the events that lead up to the start of the movement.
Born Clarence Joseph in St. Croix, USVI, Krueshef had a love for music starting from his childhood days. Inspired by his upbringing and experiences he and others faced, he developed deejaying skills and paired it with his wisdom to uplift, motivate, and entertain listeners near and far. His delivery has oftentimes compared him to Jamaican Dancehall Icon Bounty Killa, and so far he has shared the stage with the likes of Jason Derulo, DMX, and Natty King, and has found success with singles like “Di Great I Am”, “Pray With Me”, and “No Response”.
Krueshef’s “We Rise Up” will be officially available on all digital music streaming platforms on October 10, which is an important day in St. Croix as it recognizes the work of Queen Mary, a leader of the 1878 “Fireburn” uprising. The single’s music video will be available for viewing on Krueshef’s official Youtube channel.
