Twani Price wants to go ‘outside’
With stricter COVID-19 curfew measures implemented by the Jamaican Government almost two weeks ago, Twani Price felt it necessary to express the sentiment of the Jamaican people with his new single, Outside, that was released on Easter weekend.
The track expresses the frustration of the average Jamaican who is unable to make ends meet with the severe curfew hours and business closures.
Twani Price, who penned Outside after the new measures were announced and the first doses of the vaccine arrived in the island, said he saw the way the COVID-19 is affecting his Jamaican people and felt it was his responsibility as an artiste to give a voice to those who were not being heard.
"People are frustrated over the whole pandemic and don't believe the Government is looking out for the average Jamaican when enforcing these measures. As an artiste and influencer, I believe I have a voice and a responsibility to express how everyone is feeling. Me wha go outside!" he shared.
Outside was produced by Raynstorm Beatz from Africa and the video was directed by Bussweh Visuals and shows persons demonstrating against the measures and rejecting the vaccine. Twani Price is unconcerned with the possibility that the Government may not like his public disagreement with its policies.
"I'm doing my job, entertaining the people and talking about the issues that are affecting them. Plus, the people are showing crazy support to the song and that's my main concern, not how the Government feels," he added.
The artiste is also making final adjustments to his Phenomenal EP to be released before the start of summer.
