“Woke up with this track in my head, I got the itch again/ I missed the bus ’cause I was bumpin’ this, I won’t pretend/ Been through a couple of my nine lives since we last met/ Here’s hoping Cole and Kendrick understand I gotta vent/ I got a pen, I got a head full of convoluted cloudy days, let it rain/ Let it sting the conscious of those who went on inflicting pain.” – Eternia
This. is. huge. Eternia just dropped her first music video in over two years for “Final Offering”, a tribute to Kendrick Lamar’s “HiiiPower”. The visuals, directed by Alex Narvaez, take us through Kensington Market as Eternia lets loose on the mic – and I mean lets loose. The Ottawa-raised emcee sounds as inspired as ever over J. Cole’s production, marking her return to music as she opens up on everything from self doubts to questions about the meaning of life. For more on Eternia, make sure to check out our interview with her. Check out the visuals to “Final Offering” and read the track breakdown below.
Unloading a hailstorm of questions pointed at herself, God, her family, her friends, and her very purpose, ‘Final Offering’ tackles the lows of life, a topic most people avoid with repression and distractions. Eternia dives in, unafraid to reveal her insecurities and self doubt while challenging the very tenets of faith and foundation of family that she was raised on. She is joined by pHoenix Pagliacci, a burgeoning triple-threat in the Canadian music scene, who soars on this track with a poignant reminder to Eternia, and anyone else who is experiencing similar lows, of what “HiiiPower” really is.
