The recording artist’s third single ‘Dream Big’ flickers positivity, inspiring all to pursue their originality
Brooklyn, New York — October 20th, 2022- An up-and-coming artist, Minna LaFortune, festers promise through the motivational subject matter in her music most. Her new unrelenting single, ‘Dream Big,’ rolls out notions of positivity to a newfound magnitude and places itself within the uniqueness of a select few fresh releases. Self-empowerment and bristling optimism coupled with her versatile voice collide into an impeccable artistic direction and knowing the success of this, LaFortune strategically pushes it to the full in this track.
‘Dream Big’ sounds unique and flowy from start to end. The verses and the chorus intertwine perfectly with the Ska production in the background, delivering an experience unlike any other. There is an uplifting hymn of confidence in her voice that transitions into positive Ska tunes and allows for the listener to truly ‘Dream Big.’
Ska is a musical genre that was created in the 1960s in Jamaica that Minna LaFortune thinks is still viable and relevant to carry her motivational message to her fans and make “Dream Big” a memorable song.
LaFortune’s lyrical prowess resides in her songwriting ability and allows her to write this entire song with only one collaborator. The gifted song writer has a free hand with which she writes these melodic verses and while the artist is continuing to prove her artistic groove to the world with each release, it seems her motivational message will always be carried forward.
