Latoya Jane is one of those amazing artists who do more than just create a song, they send a message. She’s done it countless times before with her previous hits, and most recently, with her latest hit single “Empty”.
With “Empty”, Latoya Jane sends out a poignant message about life, which is what makes it just such a beautiful, relatable song. “Empty” has a deep, raw sound that reaches deep into the heart of the listener and pulls something out. It pulls on the heartstrings, yet also manages to empower the listener, which is what makes it a truly great piece of music. Listening to “Empty”, you find yourself thinking about some things you don’t want to think about, maybe even some things you didn’t know were in there, inside of you. It helps, in a way that’s cathartic and liberating like no other song we’ve heard this year, and it’s for that reason that we think you should drop whatever you’re doing and go listen to Latoya Jane right now.
Much can be said about exactly where “Empty” comes from, and yet, we won’t do that, because that’s where the best part of the song lies. It’s up to you to figure it out, and possibly to tie it to your own experiences. Your love, your life, your suffering.
All through her career, Latoya Jane has acted as a marvellous inspiration and role-model, particularly reaching out to youths at risk with her music. Having come up in the rough neighborhood of Jane&Finch in Toronto, she’s seen a few things. And now, she’s using her music and her unique, mesmerizing voice, to help others going through the same difficulties. Her music touches you and gives you strength, when you thought strength was no longer coming. And for that reason alone, you should listen to “Empty” right now.
