New Music: “Winning Streak”

OUT NOW!!!

My new single “Winning Streak” is out now to propel the Light Musick Movement one step further and continue to spread the Gospel.

A Light Bulb Went Off

The idea for the song came from playing NBA Live on my Android phone lol. I’d win like 7 or 8 games straight and after the second one I’d be saying “We on a winning streak.” I play with the Warriors by the way. S/O DubNation! That’s my all-time favorite NBA team. I’m a huge fan.

My Process

I began to ponder that saying as a topic for a song. I’m thinking it’s super relateable and I’ve never heard that phrase used as the focus or title of any song before. So I ran with it.

Next, I started beat shopping. Producers hit me up all the time on social media and I listen to everything. So I came across this track produced by Bulg Productions online and I immediately liked it. It was different; kinda old school cause it has a jazzy vibe to it with a mean piano melody and a groovy base line. A real traditional Hip Hop beat.

After that I played it on my monitors over and over again to let it soak in. And that’s when I started writing. I wrote the song in 25 minutes. I was led by the Holy Spirit to express this message to the masses. And I think it has a lot of potential.

After that I sat on it for about a month, but I knew then that this could be a game changer for the Light Musick Movement. Once I had the funds I bought the beat and layed down the track in my home studio. Because I’m working with limited resources I knew I would need to either get in a full scale studio or get the track mixed and mastered to improve the quality. So I went with Plan B because it was the only option in the tight budget lol.

This song was co-produced and engineered by super producer David E. Maxwell. I sent it to him and he squeezed in some time to enhance the track. He sent it back to me the next day after overcoming some challenges we were having with it. And his mix is night and day. Of course there are still opportunities, but I’m following my dear Mom’s advice of “Use what’s in front of you.”-Ann Moses And there you have it. A masterpiece was born.

The Message

I want to convey to listeners that if you have some basic things in life you’re winning. And when these things happen on a daily basis you’re on a “Winning Streak”.

Simple things like waking up, eating, having shoes, a phone, and a roof over your head should never be taken for granted. Because there are MANY people living without any of that. Somebody didn’t wake up this morning. Someone is starving, barefoot and homeless with no way to communicate.

Most importantly, if you have JESUS CHRIST you are definitely on a long eternal “Winning Streak” because HE only wants the absolute best for you here on earth and in Heaven, which is where you go when you die after you’ve accepted HIM as LORD and Saviour of your life.

So “Winning Streak” is the new Light Musick Anthem to celebrate your life and be content with what you do have right now. Because the best is yet to come. It truly gets greater later. This is a great song to bring in the New Year with. In 2017 keep winning. I’m super excited about this one!

The Cover

After the release of my debut album Word Exchange, which is free to download at LightMusick.com, Soundcloud, Noisetrade.com or Audiomack, I decided to go in a different creative direction. So I went with the approach to brand myself and my artistic style in the best way. The concept behind this cover was to put my name and face out there plus incorporate my David Gift Splatter Paint Wear into it.

Once I knew those things the next step was all about selection. Which piece of my splatter paint art would I use and in what way? Also, how would I want my face positioned and at what angle? Also how would my hair and facial hair be?

The holy Spirit led me to all those answers. And the finished product came out awesome. To GOD be the glory.

But I didn’t do it alone. I utilized my strongest contacts to make this happen. Stylist: Tracy @ Locs of Love in College Park, GA                                                         Graphic Designer and Photographer: Patrick Foley @huedproductions

The Release

“Winning Streak” is set to be distributed in the coming week to the following digital media stores:

iTunes, YouTube Art Tracks, Spotify, Amazon Music, Google Play, Deezer, Groove, Rhapsody, eMusic, Simfy Africa, iHeartRadio, MediaNet, VerveLife, Tidal, Gracenote, Shazam, 7Digital, Juke, Slacker, Guvera, KKBox, Akazoo, Anghami, Spinlet, Neurotic Media, Yandex, Target Music, ClaroMusica, Zvooq, Saavn, 8tracks, NMusic, Q.Sic, Cur, Musicload and Kuack

These stores all operate on different schedules so for an independent artist such as myself we’ll just have to wait until it arrives. But it’s in iTunes, Apple Music, Spotify, and Google Play NOW!

This will be my first song in these digital stores so this is a big deal people. With Chance the Rapper, another independent artist I’m a fan of, being nominated for 7 Grammy’s off his free mix tape Coloring Book the skies the limits. He certainly changed the game.

So…

Keep ya ears and eyes open like JESUS just came back cause “Winning Streak” is OUT NOW.  Get it here!

As always, be blessed, be safe and be happy.

Check back for more cool content. Thanks for stopping by.

Love,

David Gift
