Aidonia drops Occupied Mind
Dancehall star Aidonia is gearing up to release a special “project” today, December 1 – a 23 track effort which is a body of work dubbed Occupied Mind, which was compiled in the aftermath of the passing of his late son Khalif Lawrence.
Khalif died almost a year ago after a protracted battle with cancer.
“This is not an album; the official album a forward next year. This is just a project, not a mixtape, more like a compilation of some songs we recorded this year. You know what we were going through, so we just occupied our minds with music. It’s basically that; we are just releasing some songs,” Aidonia said in a release to the media.
The project will finally arrive after months of teasing the hashtag “#occupiedmind”.
The 4th Genna honcho announced that he will be taking a hiatus from recording music following the release of the Occupied Mind project, he will be taking a hiatus from music for a few months to focus on family and the birth of his forthcoming child.
“I will be taking a break from recording music over the next couple of months. I just want to give the people something they can vibe to because the birth of my son is approaching, and I am going to take some time to focus on that and my family,” Aidonia added.
The Frsh Drop hitmaker hopes that this compilation will serve as something to keep the fans’ insatiable appetite for new music filled.
Executively produced on the Banger House Music Group imprint, the 23-track set features a single collaboration with campmate Govana on the single Sorry 1, while production credits come courtesy of Banger House Music Group, Haunted House, Emudio, Darshan, Cashflow Big Project, and Mill Beatz.
Upon release, Occupied Mind will become available on all major digital and streaming platforms.
