Chronixx shares music video for ‘Same Prayer’ ft. Kabaka Pyramid, a mantra of positivity & strength
16 June 2020
Chronixx has shared the accompanying music video for his new single “Same Prayer” ft. Kabaka Pyramid. The music video is directed by Ivor McCray and was filmed in Jamaica.
Chronixx’s “Same Prayer” provides a pillar of strength and hope on a benediction that carries a universal message throughout life's ups and downs. Fellow Jamaican lyricist Kabaka Pyramid complements the song with a verse echoing his sentiment. Following “Dela Move”, “Same Prayer” is the second reveal from Chronixx’s upcoming second studio album Dela Splash, which is slated for release later this year. The Zion I Kings produced track is out now via Soul Circle Music.
The song rings true with today's tumultuous times, "There’s so much good in the world and still evil a lurk. In the darkness a night, Jah protect I and I from the ones who nuh care about the fact that we share the same air and the blood that we bleed is alike," Chronixx laments in the third verse. The powerful message follows in the chorus, "and when I troddin in the streets today, please Jah Jah never leave my side. And everyday the same prayer I say and I’m saying it one more time. Trodding in the streets I pray Jah Jah beg yuh please, never lef I an I, oh never leave I an I."
Chronixx explains, “Same Prayer is, in part, a prayer for the younger generation to reflect on internally. It’s also a reminder that there is a greater power directing things in the physical space. Instead of looking for solutions in our material lives, we can both reach out to this higher power and look deep within ourselves.”
