Taj Annmarie releases a new song and visual for “Heng Up & Move”
Jamaican-American artist Taj AnnMarie releases a song and visual for “Heng Up & Move.” Produced by KatManDu Sounds (@katmandusounds) and Malcolm Mason (@malcdigital), the traphall lyrics and video highlight the love Taj has for her culture. Taj AnnMarie’s unique name derives from her mother’s middle name. Raised in North Carolina, the Jamaican-American artist now resides in New Jersey. Taj creates YouTube content including, but not limited to: music covers, Q&As, and vlogs. Her traphall sound is acquired from her love and appreciation for her culture.
The clear message in “Heng Up & Move” is that Taj AnnMarie has rights to claims and owns her culture just like everyone else. Taj has been criticized for claiming that she is Jamaican, though she was not born in Jamaica. Taj’s maternal side of the family is entirely from Jamaica which explains her Jamaican household when she is home. She is often questioned because her accent isn’t as strong as Jamaican natives.
The video produced by TJ Pye @empyer_films brings the lyrics to life with fashion and choreography rooted in Jamaican culture. Taj AnnMarie’s unapologetic love for her culture is illustrated in the “Heng Up & Move” visual.
