‘Exhale’ is the feeling of being pulled in every direction by the people in your life. You have your family telling you to be more like them, your girl saying be like what she wants, and the pressure you’re putting on yourself to follow your dreams. Sometimes you just have to take a step back and breathe.
Kemba is back with a new track leading up to his upcoming project. The lead single, “Exhale,” features Smino. The pair leverage introspection to explore the tenuous situations brought on by complex dynamics formed by one’s relationships and goals.
The Bronx Native described the meaning of the track as the need to find alignment amidst the pressures of life.
His next album serves as a followup to Negus, which dropped in 2016.
