Fresh off directing photography on the Spotify Free Forever Campaign starring Chicago rapper Vic Mensa, Atsuson Jr has dropped a new single titled “Quiet Thunder.”
The song was released on July 29 and is his first single of 2022. The 25-year-old singer had been off the music scene for a year traveling across Africa and filming documentaries.
Endowed with celestial vocals, the singer details the beauty and struggle in a distance affair on heavy dance instrumental. With a deep connection to soulful music and a gift for storytelling, he tells the story of an adventurer on a quest to bring something to his people. However, his perspective and that of his loved ones would differ.
“I wrote this song to embody the emotions involved from both parties,” Atsuson Jr said about the song. With “Quiet Thunder,” he hopes to inspire people to love with enormous patience and go after their convictions. “Quiet Thunder” was produced by Sadi Beats Day, a student of the University of Ghana.
