Yeza continues to make headlines with the release of her recent trending single “Tek Chat.” It’s not a surprise that the “youth uprising” has been surging across global regions for a decade. The voice of the youth spoken, who generally have “low expectations that the government, corporations, and other institutions will prioritize them or consider their needs. The younger generation is connected to social justice and climate change; these all resonate with Yeza.
YEZA’s latest release, “Tek Chat” (produced by Sinky Beats & Yeza Music), is a Third World/Steel Pulse-esque reincarnation exemplifying meaningful narrations of the youth crying out and effecting social change.
In her own words and citing her inspiration for the track, “It is about time that we acknowledge that the bedrock of Jamaican culture and the fascinating assets that we put on display to sell to foreigners comes from the ‘ghetto minds.’ The ghetto birthed our precious musical genres, the reggae, the dancehall, which all have adopted.”
In tune with her powerful introduction to the track “Keep the vibes up high, and we never gonna let you down!!! Yeza cites many impactful achievements of Jamaicans, such as those sportspersons, fashion, and creatives, amongst others, that have risen from impoverished communities to global notoriety despite their humble beginnings.
These expressions create the solid cultural threads of the island, birthing genres and new sounds of music to top athletes. Yet, these residents are decimated the most by political intervention and lack of opportunities. Yet, Yeza, through her powerful lyricism, may be perceived as calling out the government on these matters. However, it serves as a reminder that the youth, most of all, are holding their leaders accountable for their mandates, which include sustainability and social change for the next generation.
This social commentary, “Tek Chat,” amplified by classic and modern instruments reminiscent of the greats like King Jammy and the significant dub era, is out worldwide (to include the official music video) on Friday, 18th November 2022.
