Profit Revelation reveals “Cheaters”
After a long inning on the musical field, reggae dancehall artiste Profit Revelation is aiming for the boundary.
The Spanish Town upcoming artiste says he has the right tune, a song titled, “Cheaters,” to make his century.
“Every artiste thinks every single song he or she records is the big tune. This is just the way it goes. But, the truth is that the listeners are the ones who determine if you have hit a four or six in your musical innings. They can either endorse your song or ignore it. So, in the end, just hope your song will be given the green light to go and get the opportunity of becoming a hit song”.
The quality of a song depends on the theme, the production which involves mixing and harmonizing, and, most of all, the marketing strategies.
Some songs may not have the best theme, but get a lot of airplay and social media promotion. Others, do not have that dual support but garner much attention from sound systems which can make that song popular overnight. And then one must also take into consideration the associated music video.
Lt. Stitchie, for example, secured wide viewership based on a hilarious music video attached to his hit song, “Wear Yu Size.”
Profit Revelation believes Cheaters, his latest product, has the potential to break the drought in his music career.
“Almost everyone cheats, even if they don’t admit it is cheating. This is one topic which will never disappear from our lives.”
“So many relationships have been screwed because of cheating, so too are businesses and family structures with children being affected.”
“The song involves a triangular love affair between a man and two women, his wife, and a sweetheart. He claims unconditional love for his wife, but is continually caught with the next woman who is the best for males who believe they can make the same mistake all the time, and expect to be in the driver’s seat.”
A few lines of the song are:
Baby, I’m sorry for treating you this way
Baby, I’m sorry, I’m down on bending knees.
Will you accept my apology
Mi sorry seh mi cheat
Mi sorry seh mi lie
Mi sorry seh mi break you heart
And mek you cry
Mi sorry fi accuse you seh
You got another guy…”
The making of the song came from the innovative mind of Profit Revelation, who has done songs like “Eat What We Grow… Grow What We Eat,” “World Peace,” “Mother Ban You Belly,” and “Woman and Rum.”
“Credit must be given to Lloyd “Jah Lloyd” Shaw based in the US. I have recorded two songs for him, so we have been communicating for some time.”
“He is the one who sent me the riddim over two months ago. This is the same riddim that accommodates Gregory Isaacs hit song “Tune In.””
“Cheaters” was recorded at Backyard Studio, and then mixed and mastered at Anchor Recording Studio. It’s expected to be released on the Issachar Muzik label, before the end of June. It will be distributed by Tuff Gong International and a music video is in the making.
