Emerging Jamaican-born reggae artist Minna LaFortune is set to make waves with her latest single, “Shine di Light.”

“The song is a bold and unflinching anthem that casts a spotlight on social injustice, greed, and the struggle of the less fortunate, delivered with a potent blend of raw emotion and lyrical prowess,” LaFortune, a Brooklyn resident, told Caribbean Life on Wednesday.

“’Shine di Light’ is a rallying cry for truth and economic justice, urging listeners to expose and confront the wickedness and jealousy that permeate society,” she added. “With its infectious rhythm and compelling message, the track resonates deeply, capturing the essence of the fight for economic justice and equity.”

LaFortune said verse 1 dives into the harsh realities of life on the streets, where the struggle is ongoing and survival is paramount.

LaFortune said the lyrics emphasize the need to shine a light on these struggles, making the plight of the oppressed visible to all.

She said verse 2 highlights the constant suffering of the poor, “juxtaposed with the indifference and blame-shifting of those in power.

“It’s a stark reminder of the systemic issues that perpetuate poverty and injustice,” she said.

She said verse 3 calls out the “inequity workers – the backbiters and evildoers – who thrive on deceit and exploitation.”

LaFortune’s powerful words encourage the audience to expose these wrongdoers and stand firm against their misdeeds.

She said the song’s chorus serves as a repeated plea for enlightenment and awareness, urging everyone to shine a light on the darkness within society.

“The bridge speaks to the importance of teaching the youth to love and lead by example, fostering a new generation that values truth and integrity,” said LaFortune, stating that “Shine di Light” is “more than just a song; it’s a movement.

“It’s a call to action for all who listen, encouraging them to stand up against injustice and to be the change they want to see in the world,” she added.

With its vibrant reggae beats and profound lyrics, “Shine di Light” is poised to become an anthem for social change and a beacon of hope for many.
