Reflection Music Group artist Deraj drops a bold, inspirational rap on his new single “Sometimes” featuring Adrian Stresow available on iTunes today. The song premieres on HipHopDX.
“Sometimes” is about turning to your faith during tough times. The introspective song produced by OneBeatMusic and Halo Hitz captures feelings of insecurity and victory. The pop vocal chorus addresses the fears over sparse chords and light handclaps as Stresow sings, “I can’t do this on my own, I can’t do it all alone.”
But Deraj’s confidence is restored during the song’s verses. The music turns triumphant with aggressive, sharp and moody synths, plus knocking drum patterns. Here the Orlando-based artist acknowledges his answered prayers, rapping, “Maybe I’m being dramatic / ‘Cause you help me carry on / You help me carry on without all of my baggage.”
Deraj explains his motivation for writing the song. “We pretend that we have it all together, but the reality is that sometimes we’re afraid,” he says. “Our past and present mistakes make us uncertain about the future. ‘Sometimes’ reminds listeners that with God, we can overcome everything.”
In June, Deraj released the single “Know That’s Me” featuring K¥NG. Earlier this year, he put out the album For the People with B. Cooper. He made his debut in 2014 with Mirrors & Medicine – EP.
