Canadian artist APHROSE releases empowering new single 'Move On'
Following her debut single 'The Middle' which garnered much praise and support from media and fans around the world, Aphrose is excited to release her soulful new single 'Move On', produced by Scott McCannell. Move On is an empowering love song that breaks barriers and free us from our own limitations. Her distinctive, silky smooth voice takes us on a journey towards self-love, leaving us wanting more. She adds 'It is not your average love song about relationships between two people, but rather about the love a person finds when they realize their own self-worth. Move On is that feeling you get when you finally become aware that you've had enough of barriers like hate and fear and you're not going to let those walls hold you back anymore.’
APHROSE a.k.a Joanna Mohammed is an Indie-Soul artist from Toronto, Canada. Raised in the culturally diverse neighbourhoods of Scarborough, Aphrose's musical tastes were shaped by all the various genres present in her Trinidadian household. Soul and gospel are obvious influences, while she’s also inspired by traditional styles such as Soca, Calypso, Reggae but also Bollywood soundtracks and even Country.
A thought-provoking visual, directed by Michael Tobin, will be unveiled on February 19th. Proud of living in a time where women are standing up for themselves, they came up with the idea of filming an army of strong women walking, in a single take, to emphasize the symbolic value of the song. 'The concept of having 20+ strong, brave, women of different ethnicities & backgrounds walk in solidarity, past the oppression, past the racism, past the hatred, past the bigotry, past the weight of the patriarchy and rise above it, was powerful. Hopefully Move On resonates with a lot of people.’ Aphrose’s new single is now available on all digital platforms.
