Elliven overcomes ‘challenges’ to release new album

August 11, 2021

Recording artiste Elliven has poured a series of life experiences into his latest project, titled Challenges.

"This album is about life on a whole. It focuses on the ups and down, day-to-day struggles, life's journey and the obstacles we face along the way," the artiste explained. The 18-track album encompasses a reggae-dancehall sound with twists of afrobeat, pop and R&B. While some of the tracks were released before the pandemic and others completed throughout 2020, the process wasn't always smooth but in the end was definitely worthwhile.

"I had several challenges during the making of this album but that only makes me deeper, stronger and wiser," the artiste stated. With titles such as Morning Glory, Champion Lover and Live Like We Never Lived, the album covers topics such as love, life, happiness and struggles.

"This album is a feel-good album despite some of the problems in life. It brings a positive vibration where needed and restores hope and peace in the mindset of many," Elliven said. "Life is a journey and despite its challenges, we have to remember to take care of ourselves and each other mentally, physically and emotionally and always remember to put God above all things."

Elliven said that he wants the album to get more exposure and to be able to connect with people.

Challenges is Elliven's second studio album, which follows his 2015 release Lyric.
