R&B/Pop artist Kirrah Amosa releases new single and companion music video.
Undefeated was inspired by the strength it takes to keep going when it’s getting too hard. It is spoken from the perspective of someone in a relationship but can relate to anyone overcoming any struggle. Pretending to be strong and putting risk on your mental health shows far less strength than being humble enough to ask for help when you need it.
“Music is such a universal language, through it I can communicate with people of every background, and connect with people I’ve never met and may never meet. Music has also been an incredible healing tool for me so all I hope to do is create something that can connect and help as many people as I can.” – Kirrah Amosa

“While I wrote Undefeated I was battling with sudden, expected waves of anxiety and feeling quite isolated from those that could help combat those waves. I had never experienced feeling like this before so I didn’t know any coping strategies and I didn’t know how to ask for help. Because I had always been viewed as a strong, powerful human, I didn’t know how to express that I suddenly felt incredibly powerless and lonely for what seemed like no reason.
I managed to find little ways to incorporate more self-care activities, such as meditation and exercise, into my routine, which has heavily inspired the visual for Undefeated.
Looking back, I can see there were better ways for me to overcome these emotions, like reaching out to someone I trust and opening up about my struggle, but I did manage to push through just by being resilient and staying focused on things that are truly important to me. Although I wasn’t able to talk to anyone privately, I decided express myself through my music as an effort to reach out to those that can relate to my experience.”
