“Fu*k it, I’m taking my seat at the table, trust me I know that I’m more than able, do it myself and I don’t need a label…”
– quote from “Seat at the Table”
Upcoming United Kingdom artist Aries drops his first single, “Seat at the Table.” In just a month that it was uploaded by Link Up TV, the music video has amassed over 9,000 views on YouTube.
“Seat at the Table” has Aries dropping some sharp bars in tune with the fast tempo, drill, and trap-style rap track. The song is a revelation of his life’s story and his efforts to create a niche for himself in the music industry. In life, you don’t have to wait for things to be handed to you. You have to take what is rightfully yours. His rise to the limelight was achieved by him, and he declares that he doesn’t need a label or to depend on anyone else. He’s not out to play but rather to win.
The visuals aptly complement the track. There are scenes of Aries playing chess and card games with some opponents. He is calculative, confident, smart, and fast, beating his competitors hands down. He is confident in his skills and is not afraid to put in the grit to get to the top.
