Quinashai Chelette heats things up for story time in her 2nd single and official music video, "The Wind Blows"
[New Orleans, LA, July 11, 2021] "She told me to write her a poem that would help her put into words how exactly to feel. So I embodied her pain, a pain that I have yet to experience & I iced her broken heart 💔 on my words to preserve it while she healed. Then I made it into a song. Thank you my dangerously beautiful muse who will remain a beautiful mystery 💋
I hope this helps you like it did her #GetWellSoon
Enjoy this mixtape styled poetic rap piece DROPPING Summer 2021"
Quinashai Chelette posted a sneak peak of her new single, "The Wind Blows" this past April and interestingly enough, the story being told wasn't even hers. "I didn't know how to feel or how to be there for my friend, so I wrote her a poem that I hoped would help her healing process". As of to date, with the exception of R3Marley, all muses and inspiration used in Q. Chelette's projects are cloaked in mystery to preserve their privacy. "If we take time to stop and process life, I think we can learn from each other's life experiences; but how can you teach something that you struggle with learning yourself? So I decided to tell her story, but paraphrased from my own perspective, hoping that there would be a lesson to learn for all of us by the end of the song." Q. Chelette explains.
The official music video for "The Wind Blows" was inspired by the art of confession. Q. Chelette confesses to a broken heart caused by an emotionally unstable lover who may be too far gone to save. Now she is left stuck between a rock and a hard place; having to choose between giving unconditional love or offering something she had been neglecting herself of; selflove. After soaking in a karmic infused bubble bath, Q. Chelette decides not to engage in the toxic game of "get back", but instead she gracefully bows out to offer space for forgiveness, healing, and growth to all who are willing to receive. "I believe that there are battles in life, that were intended for no one to win, but everyone involved to learn from; it's just unfortunate when people refuse to learn or understand the part/role they played".
