Kwesi Arthur draws deep from his past and presents to share his emotional stress with the world in a new single ‘Pain Interlude’.
The song which comes after a few weeks of collaboration with Kofi Mole is more introspective. The self-examining nature of the lyrics is not surprising as it is a characteristic of songs written by Kwesi Arthur.
The pain of betrayal, of lost friendship, of disbelieving by those who were supposed to see his dream and help him achieve it, is channelled into this artful song.
Kwesi pulls off one of his trademarks in ‘Pain Interlude.’ That is his effortless ability to motivate through his songs.
Underneath this smooth but earnest tune is the motivation to live without letting the past and other hurtful experiences bog us down.
Make I talk about the steps
on thema necks
Make I talk about the vex me I no be pressed
If I talk about the stress e no go make it less
My big homies turned to bitch homies what be next
I no fit dwell on regrets, fuck a rewind
Lately I no fit dey sleep been trapping all the time
Toss and turn, toss and turn like all the time
I dey strike them dey feel say I be number 9
Make I talk about the pain
No pain, no gain
We go never be the same
