Song of the Day: Island Gyal

I am from the islands, croons Camille Safiya on Island Gyal. I can’t tell you how much I love this song. There is some music that you just instantly connect with. Lyrics that you feel on a deeper level. Island Gyal reminds me of the Fiji Islands; of my heritage. It makes me want to groove, but also makes me intensely proud of that Fijian heritage and culture. I long to be back on that island with my family when I hear it.

Representation is so important and to have a song like this with lyrics like I am from the island… she fancy/around the street everybody knows… she fancy, she classic. It represents all those little girls from the islands. Hold your head high Island Gyals, you are magnificent.
