DSP Reveals Creative Process for ‘Promise’ His New Hit Song [Exclusive Interview]

                                                                                   

                                                                      
  Two days ago, the young-creative DSP, opened up to C-LiberiaClearly about the emotions that led to his sensual melody, ‘Promise’.   DSP is letting fans in on the creative process behind his No. 1 hit, the most emotional song he’s ever written.

 C-LiberiaClearly:   Obviously, Promise is a love song.  Was this song written based on actual experience?

 DSP:    Yes.   In 2005, I was a young high school student in Ghana, who was in love.  I had all the dreams and fantasies of being in love forever.  She was my lover and best friend.  Unfortunately, she had to travel to the States.  When she was leaving, we promised each other that we would keep in touch and reunite someday.  Well, as time went by, we grew apart and she moved on.  The break up took me for a spin.  I thought I would’ve never recover but I did and eventually moved back to Liberia.    I recently made a trip to Ghana and that woke up some old emotions in me, which led to this song. 

When I was working on the script for the video, I wanted to evoke those same emotions.  I wanted my fans to feel the same sadness and loneliness I felt when she left.  I knew the woods would have been a great place to give a sense of loneliness and a feeling of being lost.  Where is the best woods to use than the beautiful scenario of Firestone rubber plantation?

So, there you have it, that is the story behind ‘Promise.’ Love, hard work and pure creativity.  There isn’t any photocopy here.  Oops, my bad, he sang the song with a Ghanaian accent but based on the history of the song, we can understand why.

Lyrics to 'Promise'.
 
(1st verse)
No be the games that we use to play…ah ah
I swear I no lie we for make a change…ah ah
Maybe you know…maybe you don’t
Where we dey go…e no be the way
Girl I dey try to make you understand…ah ah ah

Lay thing you dey do, I don’t understand
Girl I know, I ll be leaving you
I know you telling me
 (Chorus)
I know you love me oh

Talking bout the promises
Forgetting the promises way you give to me
You said you never let go
Baby ah, baby ah….remember promises -- 2 x
 
(2nd Verse)
Looking in your eyes telling me it’s ok
But girl I believe it was mine mistake
Baby you know, baby I know
Look on your face, it shouldn’t erase
Girl I dey try to make you understand
Ordoryewu Oh me peh wah sem
Lay thing you dey do, I don’t understand
Girl I know, I ll be leaving you

Babe I, don’t know
I love you so much
And I, do know
Oh oh
Ordoryewu Oh me peh wah sem
Lay thing you dey do, I don’t understand

(Rap)
I be your mocking bed
I swear I never sweat
Babe am stocked to you like glue stocked on jean
You know I be your breathe
Everything you inhaled
 
(back to chorus)
