Montreal-based Emi Jeen has just released a new personal single, ‘Other Side,’ taken from her EP of the same name.
This engaging new track, inspired by the artist’s personal experience, means to unite the world.
“I’ve experienced bullying and have let a lot of people control me in the past, which led me to struggle with building self confidence,” Emi Jeen reveals. “I wouldn’t argue with anyone, and do everything that people said I should do. I never knew how to stand up for myself or have an opinion. I felt like I had to shut up and look pretty all the time.”
“Enough is enough, it’s time to wake up. I can’t keep letting people tell me what to do with my life, it’s destroying me.”
“It doesn’t matter where you are from, what color you are, or what you believe in,” she says. “We are all warriors, and we will fight together. We will no longer stay inside the box and keep quiet.”
“This project is truly me and my past experiences – feelings and emotions that I have kept for so many years,” she adds. “I feel a bit naked in public to let these stories into the world, but at the same time I feel a huge sense of relief.”
