Representing for the “Other Side Of Toronto” (O.S.O.T.), Mississauga-native Fame Holiday dropped a special record to kick off an important Black History Month.
The new single “Take Me Away”, which is accompanied by the incredible TreyTimeless music video above, is about the struggle and pain that generations of communities have felt. Fame writes not only for them, but also for those who have witnessed the struggle and have felt powerless.
After struggling with these emotions for some time, Holiday decided to express himself through music. Now, more than ever, Holiday believes that artists and people of popularity should use their influence, following and platforms to lead by example, and advocate for humanitarian movements.
“I’m really trying to do my part in terms of trying to spread a positive message and bringing awareness to something that’s bigger than me”, Fame explained. He goes on to share, “The song calls out for change and coming together to stop the violence, discrimination, and systematic racism, along with showing that it is okay to support causes and movements that may be outside of their race or comfort zones.”
“Take Me Away” is the most vulnerable we’ve heard Fame, and you can tell in his voice how important it was for him to do this.
The beautiful music video showcases the unity, love, peace, and passion that encompass efforts that support black-owned and other minority-owned local businesses.
The video is a depiction of the youth coming together and working to stop the hate – a hope that many of us believe can be reality soon.
