KDVSGOLIATH / PLAY YOUR PART.

AT 22 YEARS OF AGE, LONDON’S OWN KDVSGOLIATH IS ONE OF THE MOST EXHILARATING YOUNG ARTISTS EMERGING ON THE INTERNATIONAL STAGE. IN FACT, JUST LAST NIGHT KD SWOOPED THE #16 SPOT ON SPOTIFY’S NEW MUSIC FRIDAY. IF YOU’VE HEARD HIS NAME BEFORE, YOU ARE PROBABLY WELL ACQUAINTED WITH HIS ASSERTIVE STYLE OF RAP AND POP-PUNK INFLUENCE IN HIS MORE ALTERNATIVE RECORDS. IF YOU ARE NOT YET FAMILIAR WITH THIS RISING PHENOM, IT’S TIME TO GO TREAT YOURSELF TO HIS NEWEST SINGLE, “PLAY YOUR PART.”! 

BACK IN HIS GENRE-DEFYING BAG, “PLAY YOUR PART.” IS AN ALT-POP BANGER THAT FLIRTS WITH ELEMENTS OF RAP AND HYPER-POP, PUTTING KD’S CREATIVE RANGE ON FULL DISPLAY. A HEART-WRENCHINGLY HONEST EXPRESSION OF PAIN AND PERSONAL GROWTH, THE TRACK WAS MADE DIRECTLY AFTER KD WENT THROUGH A BREAKUP WITH A GIRLFRIEND THAT HE HAD ENVISIONED LIVING THE REST OF HIS LIFE WITH. IN THE SONG, DAWIT (KD) REFLECTS ON THE STRUGGLES OF THIS RELATIONSHIP AND THE GAP THAT DEVELOPED BETWEEN HIM AND HIS EX, SINGING, 

“DON’T KNOW WHY YOU DIDN’T PLAY YOUR PART. I CAN TELL THAT LOVING ME WAS HARD. THAT’S THE PART: I CAN’T BE EVERYTHING… EVERYTHING… EVERYTHING… TO ME.” 

PRODUCED BY KD, JACK CAMPBELL, AND KEANU LUCA, THE TRIO OF FREINDS TAG-TEAMED THIS SAD STORY TURNED INFECTIOUS ANTHEM INTO ONE OF THE MOST MEMORABLE KDVSGOLIATH RECORDS TO DATE. THE SONG CONCLUDES WITH A TRANSPARENT LOOK INTO KD’S FAITH AS HE PRAYS, “THANK YOU GOD FOR GUIDANCE. I DO NOT DESERVE A SINGLE SHRED OF YOUR GRACE, A SINGLE SHRED OF YOUR LOVE. BUT ALSO LORD, I CAN’T DO THIS WITHOUT YOU.” A TRULY REMARKABLE ARTIST WITH A UNIQUE PERSPECTIVE AND ABILITY TO CAPTURE EMOTION, I HAVE A FEELING THAT WE ARE JUST SCRATCHING THE SURFACE OF WHAT KDVSGOLIATH HAS TO OFFER THE WORLD. CHECK OUT “PLAY YOUR PART.” AND IT’S ACCOMPANYING VISUAL BELOW!
