This Mother’s Day will be a unique one for the history books. It will be celebrated differently, as we all need to stay safe and will most likely be avoiding close contact in public spaces, for our health and well-being. This will cause many families to transfer the festivities to their home space. All in all, this probably doesn’t sound too bad, considering that home is indeed where the heart is. There’ll be home-cooked meals, conversation and energy, but the music definitely shouldn’t be forgotten. Here’s where we introduce a track for you to add to the playlist: “Adore” by $iZon.
This is a track that grew on me due to its catchy nature, simple beat and familiar melody. $izon has been pushing his sound for some time (notably in the Hip Hop and Dancehall genres) and this smooth guitar and finger-snapping ballad is exactly what was needed to add some variety to his offerings. The chorus is an ode to God’s greatest creation: (I just wanna let you know, mama/ Imma never let you go, mama/ If push come to shove, mama/ Imma give you my love, mama). These words are definitely some to reflect upon, and I’m sure that we can all spring forth with wonderful stories about the maternal figures in our lives.
Released earlier this week (May 4, 2020), the track has already garnered some serious attention from social media audiences. It has been featured on @thetropix, an online Caribbean entertainment hub, and $iZon is set to be interviewed by DJ Chin Movements tonight on his Instagram Live Stream (@djchinmovements). Great feedback from the public is recognizable as it defines a song’s quality and reach, and with enough effort this song is an easy hit that connects to all cultures and regions. I promise you that if your mother is a fan of music, she’ll be humming along to this one and learning the lyrics in no time.
According to Wikipedia, “The modern holiday of Mother’s Day was first celebrated in 1908, when Anna Jarvis held a memorial for her mother at St Andrew’s Methodist Church in Grafton, West Virginia. St Andrew’s Methodist Church now holds the International Mother’s Day Shrine. Her campaign to make Mother’s Day a recognized holiday in the United States began in 1905, the year her mother, Ann Reeves Jarvis, died. Ann Jarvis had been a peace activist who cared for wounded soldiers on both sides of the American Civil War, and created Mother’s Day Work Clubs to address public health issues. Anna Jarvis wanted to honor her mother by continuing the work she started and to set aside a day to honor all mothers because she believed a mother is “the person who has done more for you than anyone in the world”.
$iZon is an act to look out for. Feel free to follow his social media for more updates, and most importantly (if you can), be sure to spend some quality time with Mama this weekend. After all, as the saying goes: “charity begins in the home.”
