Mississuga, ON-based hip-hop artist, Vivek Mehmi has unveiled his new single, “Love Myself”.
Serving as a self-reminder to accept his position during hard healing moments, Vivek looks to instill a forgiving message into his listeners. Asking listeners to surrender, and not be overly critical of the challenges people face daily, Vivek hopes to push self-reflection and awareness onto his growing fanbase. “Loving ourselves sounds cliché, or like a catchphrase used in the spiritual community,” he says. “But it’s really important, and not something someone else can do for us.
“Sometimes we have layers of trauma that need to be healed before we can get to this point.”
“‘Love Myself’ explores a new genre for me in indie-pop; all my other music is Hip-Hop… This song is the first time I fully sing on a track… I wanted to be vulnerable.”
Vulnerability is the key influence in Vivek’s newest single, “Love Myself.”
“Growing as an artist in my craft, as well as a person is very important to me: To learn from lessons — to not replicate but to evolve,” he continues. “Loving myself is a process, and the growth hasn’t always been linear. But I stay persevering and trust I am on the right path, having positive intentions.”
