It’s not easy to move from one country to another , leaving our family behind in order to get a better future. In this track Young Max approached this subject in a very educational and motivational way.

On the other hand Blessings music video starts with a message :

Sorry I spent the budget on this video for some more important shit like travelling and enjoying myself so I had to cut off some corners by directing and editing on my own. But guess what ? As long as I have females dancing on my video nobody will care or notice. So hopefully you will join the 95% of the people that don’t give a damn about lyrics.

The artist highlighted the way the industry are more focused on the image and beauty standards instead of appreciating the real content of the music.
