Nesbeth - Taste Victory (Official Music Video)

Written by Admin   
Music video by Nesbeth performing "Taste Victory" off the album 'Victory EP'. Video directed by RD Studios, video produced by Entertainment Soul.

'Taste Victory' is Nesbeth's first recording for the UK based Entertainment Soul imprint, it's a song full of optimism for the future, whilst reflecting on the reality of not such good times in the past. The video stylishly portrays this by depicting the reggae star as a boxer, who is staged in the ring to battle with his negative past self. Of course, the star is victorious and the sweet refrain is sung over & again, "..now I can taste victory.."

As with many great songs, it's literal interpretation could go many ways. Nesbeth himself chose to use this visual angle to give encouragement to those that live with self doubt, that personal achievement is often only held back by this negative internal struggle and that it must be overcome to fully flourish. It is certainly possible for all and if you’re ever finding it hard just remember - "the hotter the battle, the sweeter the victory!".

Nesbeth - Taste Victory (Lyrics Snippet)

I'm close to the end of my broke days
Now I can taste victory
Been through the worst of my worst days
Now I can taste victory
Many bad Christmas, wul' heap a bad birthdays
Now I can taste victory
Mi stay focus, mi never did go both ways
Now I can taste victory

Mi know how hungry feel and what poverty taste like
From the day mi born mi dreaming of a great life
Hustle nine-to-five and still a hustle late night
Sometime a just likke Sunday Monday safe life
Still mi give thanks to the man weh create life
Through the hardship learn fi appreciate life
Mama use to tell mi son don't pace life
Thats why mi work hard to survive
