    David Minott’s current hit, is a fun dance track perfect for a night with the ladies, but don’t judge his whole body of work by that track.

     
    David added his sizzle to the sounds of summer with “Girl’s Night Out,” but his sounds is more socially conscious than that song suggests.
     
    If you want to find out what  he’s all about you need look no further than “Lest We Froget,” which begins with snippets from Martin Luther King Jr’s “I Have a Dream Speech.” The song was released in May of 2009, it is still in rotation Sirius XM Radio and Centric.


     
    Before working on his upcoming release, Here Comes Your Life, David’s work was more traditional Reggae and Dance Hall music than anything else. However, he wanted to give his music a slightly different flavor, which he knew he would only get to do as a solo artist.
     
    For example, “Lest We Forget” forget had been on the shelf for a long time before David laid it down as a track.

     
    “I wrote the song about 15 years ago when Mandela became president,” he admits. David told us that the song is about how Black people have to remember the struggles we’ve been through to achieve certain goals, and that our work is not done. “When Barack Obama became president of the United States, I felt the same sentiment everybody else felt. So, I kind of dusted off the song and really put it together.” 

     
    Both “Lest We Forget” and “Girls’ Night Out” will be featured on Here Comes Your Life, which hits stores later this year. While you’re waiting to get your hands on a copy of the album, check out the video for “Lest We Forget" below.
