Proklaim – “REASON 2 BELIEVE”


An eerie synth backdrop compels alongside a hypnotic hip-hop flow on “REASON 2 BELIEVE,” a new track from Namibia-based artist Proklaim. Lyrics compel in emphasizing to seize the day, driving into the “money talks,’ chorus — punctuated by glistening piano-laden haunts. A more fast-paced vocal prowess unveils in the following verses, emphasizing the track’s gripping versatility — from the laid-back, haunting central hook to the more dexterous, intense verses.

“You can fly to the stars now,” the vocals further amidst the spacey piano effects, with references to AI exploring shifts within society — and how one’s hopes/dreams can intertwine with technological tools for something new and challenging. The ghostly production consumes alongside an ethos to follow one’s intuition, enabling a greater access to one’s purpose. This is another strong showing from Proklaim, featured previously with the tracks “SOMEBODY” and “all eyez.”

This and other tracks featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of September 2023’ Spotify playlist.

We discovered this release via MusoSoup, as part of the artist’s promotional campaign.
