Untamed 1 salutes mothers | Entertainment
Recording artiste Untamed 1 has a tribute for mothers in his track, Mama.
“One year when people were talking about buying stuff for Mother’s Day, I decided to write this song for my mother for her Mother’s Day gift. I called the song Mama to make her have an idea of the way I felt about everything that she had been doing for us,” the artiste explained.
“I hope this song will be well received, primarily by all mothers out there raising their family alone. I want my fans and supporters to use this song as a tribute to their mothers, too. I am a hard worker, so with this and any other project I have done, I try to put my all into it and hope for the best outcome,” he said.
The accompanying music video was released on April 30. It was filmed in several locations across Kingston, including Port Royal and his mother’s own fruit stand.
“The concept is telling the story of a child raised by his widowed/single mother after his father passed away at age six. He promised that he would ensure that his mother was provided for because of her daily sacrifices to raise him and all his siblings. The story also pays respect to mothers around the world who have gone through the same struggles of raising their children alone or in a double-parent household. A mother is a special and selfless person,” the artiste explained.
With music as a part of his life for the past 15 years, the Portmore-based artiste has been in the game professionally for the past two years. His first official single, Don’t Know, was released last November.
“As an artiste, I try to be versatile with my style of music, and write songs with meaning that others can relate to. I would say I am a dancehall singjay artiste with most of my songs I have recorded to date. I am looking forward to releasing reggae and Afrobeat songs in the future,” he said.
