Ghanaian-Australian artist BLESSED addresses the social and environmental challenges that continue to be felt across the world in his latest indie hip-hop anthem “No Changes.” The single comes with a video that was shot in BLESSED’s hometown of Western Sydney where we get to see clips of social justice marches and environmental destructions.
BLESSED commented on the single, ”‘No Changes’ is an anthemic commentary on what seems like an endless battle to be seen, heard and treated equally. A battle that all of us universally share in both communal and unique ways. The ‘No Changes’ video visually represents the everyday person and struggles within this reality. The documentary style gives the viewer an intimate glimpse into our world, filled with an arrayed with raw emotion but also with a hint of hope and optimism.”
The track is the follow up of his latest project LOCKDOWN TAPES VOL. 1, which was entirely created and released during NSW lockdown. Beyond his own work, BLESSED is also a producer who has credits and sessions with some renowned artists and producers including The Kid LAROI, COL3TRANE, J.LBS/Jason Pounds (Anderson Paak, Kendrick Lamar, Jorja Smith), Manu Crooks, Maina Doe, Anfa Rose, B Wise, JOY., Matt Black, Milan Ring and many more.
