‘Believe’ is not only the first single of the upcoming EP that Foresta and Royal Blu are working on, it is also the first release to be dropped on Foresta’s new Label Foresta Music, marking the start of a constant output of songs with a variety of artists that he is working with worldwide.
‘Believe’ is the result of an inspirational encounter of music producer Foresta and singer Royal Blu in Kingston Jamaica this year.
‘It was our first time working together face to face and definitely an amazing experience all together. One of my favourite and most memorable studio sessions I've had.’ Royal Blu
The track was recorded at Quik Keyz Studio in Mona, Kingston. Royal Blu got the upcoming singer Lila Ike to sing the chorus, adding vibrancy to the song and supporting the “love-song” feeling that it carries in its lyrics.
‘I'm singing about faith as if it's a person and how I find it hard to keep that person around - because of all the negative we're surrounded by - and how I'm losing that person. So it can almost sound like a break up or love song to listeners.’ Royal Blu
During Foresta’s time in Kingston they shot a music video and set up a live session for ‘Believe’ both directed by South African/German director Thandi Sebe and filmed by Foresta. The live session was recorded at the event location Nanook with the support of the upcoming musicians Makiri Whyte, Nicolas Groskopf, Almando El Capo, Kawain Allure and Quik Keyz as engineer.
‘Believe’ is dropping on 26th of August 2016 on all digital platforms. Also watch out for the music video being released the same day and the live session soon after. A second single is also going to be released this year before the EP is dropped in spring 2017.
