We were so eager to grow up and then we did and now, even though we have highlights, there are times where we just can’t help the wave of despair that hits you when you’re at your lowest.
Being a young person in GH can be tough and even though people say it’s the best parts of your life, sometimes it’s the absolute gutter.
And this emotion is what Freddie Gambini, a final year UPSA student has channeled into his song “What If”
The song is the perfect “I’m going through it so I need songs about ‘going through it’ to make my ‘going through it’ bearable”
You get what we are saying… right?
The mellow song which Gambini describes as trap soul, connected with him the first time he heard the beat from the producer Joshua 3dem. The connection was so strong he was willing to pour his heart out in a genre he wasn’t too familiar with.
A song that hits you immediately with the artiste’s raw emotions the second it starts playing.
What If was recorded at a time in Freddie Gambini’s life where he was at his lowest point. He lost friends, questioned his decisions and wondered if he was on the right path.
This was a period where he was in despair, lost and felt alone even though there were people around him and he admits that when recording the song, he did she’d a few tears and had to leave the studio, get it together and return later when there were less people around.
It’s exciting finding a song where the artiste bares it all and speaks their honest truth. It’s even more exciting that he’s a young artiste who chose to put his emotions out for others to connect with.
This is a song we know lots of you will relate to. For some of you it’d definitely take you back to a time where you felt alone (could even be now) and inasmuch as we don’t know exactly how you felt or might be feeling, we can assure you that you won’t always feel like this and there are definitely good days to be had.
