The Story

Who wrote the song, who produced the song, what was the inspiration, what is Balance?

  • The beat came from a producer out of Ghana named Moniebeats. The song itself was produced by myself and my in-house team.
  • Song was written by: Myself, Steadley Reid, Fernandez Griffiths and Stonebwoy
  • The track itself gives me a lot of movement and inspired us to create a dancers anthem that hopefully will infect the world, so that all the dancers from the Caribbean, UK, and Africa can step up in unison and rock out.
  • Balance itself is a controlled way of expressing the movements when on the dance floor. Its an internal fight when the music hits and you wanna let go in wild abandonment, but must fight to maintain some sort of decorum while still enjoying the vibes.

K’coneil why did you chose to venture in Afrobeat and why Stonebwoy?

Stonebwoy and I met at a show at the Gramercy Theatre in NYC in 2017. I liked his energy and what he has built with the fusion of the African music scene and Jamaican Dancehall. Me being “Mr. Genrefuild” and my vision to improve the fluidity between the genres, makes the collaboration just natural and unforced. He’s really a dope artist who’s versatility goes beyond just one genre. Afrobeat in my opinion is one of the biggest growing global urban music genres and the world has no choice but to recognize its infection. It reminds me of how Reggae/Dancehall chartered its own rhythmic and soulful course on the world scene as an art form. Its fun, its hip, and is a massive wave right now that is here to stay.
