ONE LOVE FROM SINGER I-OCTANE
“Bredda me love you ; sister me love you; Mama me love you …” reggae singer I-Octane croons in his latest single which speaks, not just to his love for family and friends, but in true I-Octane style, also embraces his “enemies”.
Entitled One Love, the single is set to become I-Octane’s theme song to carry him through to the rest of this year and into 2011 and seems a natural sequel to the lessons learnt from his monster hit, Lose A Friend. Whereas Lose A Friend laments the death of someone closedear, One Love declares the importance of telling the person ‘I love you’ because” mi nuh know when Pharisees a go dun dem”.
According to the singer, he felt compelled to write these lyrics and the lyrics just poured out. “Love is an awesome feeling and if you believe in word, sound and power, you will understand the importance of saying the words ‘I love you’ out aloud,” I-Octane says of the single One Love.
“Love is something we can never get too much of or get tired of hearing … as long as there is sincerity to the words,” he added.
Although just released, the single has been added to the play-list of various stations and I-Octane is on a mission to spread the message of One Love. He will be incorporating the song into his repertoire as of now and cherishes the hope that this love will really become infectious.
“We Rastafarians have always lived a life of ‘one love’. The great Bob Marley has a song called One Love and it is for us to see to it that the one love message remains true and strong. Tell somebody you love them today,” he urged. “But don’t say it if you don’t mean it,” he added.
The song was produced by Chad Williamson for Suncycle Records
