When it comes to Jamaican Reggae artist Etana, she can never go wrong for me. Every song has a message; something deep and enervating. This woman has talent for days and I implore you to give her a listen if you’ve never granted your soul the opportunity.
The singer has returned with yet another influential single titled Trigger. Lyrically, the song explores the story of an individual struggling to cope with a plunging economy, as well as fighting the temptation to fall into a life of crime to make ends meet. It’s hard for him to never go back there, but when the world is weighing down on his shoulders, he falters under pressure.
What I like about the song is how realistic it is. It might not be the reality of some, but it is quite the truth for many. Trigger is definitely a tearjerker, yet you can’t help but listen to it over and over. This is only another incredible creation by a woman of pure, honest music, and I love how she keeps them coming.
