Driven by percussive breaths, energetic 808’s and a massive chorus, “Mama Said” brings a fresh perspective on today’s Pop/R&B genre and empowerment messages. The no-BS energy of the lyric proclaimed by Dellaria’s powerful vocal chanting, “Never let em knock you down!” demands listeners attention. The core of it? A passionate declaration to keep rising above the craziness that life – and sometimes society – can present us.
The fiery song, written solely by Dellaria, was ignited by a deep frustration:
“I was so tired of defending my happiness and identity. Tired of fighting off stereotypes and expectations. It evolved into anger that grew with each news headline or daily encounter that a friend would experience and share. Whether across the world or at school – the fight to simply be and exist in the face of hatred and negativity became undeniable. So I wrote about it. The foundation of “Mama Said” is a simple vow to maintain happiness. Maybe it’s a friend who’s jealous and coming for your crown, or maybe it’s something bigger. Regardless – the vow remains the same: “Never Let em Knock You Down”.
The “no-excuses only swagger” single is the third release off of Dellaria’s upcoming debut EP.
