After releasing songs like ‘Mind Control” and “Alcapone” Dre JA releases his first video for this amazing uplifting song called “Keep Up” which is produced by ZJ Ice. Keep Up is a track that tells the story of dreams and hardships in the music business and how one motivates self to come out victorious.
Many Legends were born out of the music industry. They have brought the music to where it is today. Many have passed on and here we are, we have listened and have also chosen music as a career. They became mentors and for some their Idols. These great artists wish for their legacy to be in good hands. They are expecting us to rise to the occasion and even be better than they were, although in this music life, it can be hard to survive; It is not a rivalry. The question this song is now asking is: “Can you keep up, keep up, keep up.? Can you keep up? – DRE JA
