JOVA NEW RELEASE HEARTFELT
Right out of DFW, Jova is one with a story. His song “Heartfelt,” is exactly as it sounds, loaded with the full range of emotions. Upon listening to his newest (and only) release, we knew his music meant a lot to him. We needed to know everything ASAP.
THE HONEY: WHAT IS THE STORY/MESSAGE WITH YOUR SONG? WHAT WAS THE INSPIRATION?
JOVA: “The message behind this song is me going through a hard time in life being really depressed feeling like my life was going to end. Having people switch up on me and being fake towards me. Having a girl I was in love with just ghost me, who didn’t wanna push for the love I was giving her. Telling my dad that I never forgot about him and I’m always gonna be there for him no matter what has happened and wanting to help him get out of the horrible place he lives in. I also had people talking down on my name and I had to show them I wasn’t gonna let that stop me from what I was doing; I wasn’t giving in or giving up on myself or my family or my close friends. Telling them they are gonna see my worth and telling my mom and grandma that they have some blessings coming their way. Me being a religious person and growing up in a church with my grandma, she always told me to pray to God for everything. There were times he answered my prayers and helped me move to Texas. Now I’m here pursuing what I love, which is music… The inspiration behind this song is wanting my mom dad, grandma, brothers, sisters, nieces and nephews to have a better life and not struggle ever.
THE HONEY: WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE LYRIC OF THE SONG? BREAK IT DOWN FOR US!
JOVA: “‘I conquered all of my lessons, So I can’t live in depression. Depression had me in the mud, where I can’t see all my treasures.’ The lyrics I chose mean a lot to me. ( I conquered all of my lessons, so I cant live in depression) by me conquering all of my lessons is me taking advice from people telling me ‘you have to do something with your life and not be like your father.’ So, I moved here to Texas from Mississippi because music was my only way out of there.”
THE HONEY: IS THERE ANYTHING ELSE YOU WANT TO SHARE ABOUT THIS SONG?
JOVA: “This is my first and only song on Spotify so far and it means a lot because it’s a meaningful song of how I was feeling and everything came out of me at one time.”
