On Friday, October 14, 2022, Jamaican singing trio Levy’s Heritage released what is being called the motivational song of the season ‘Champion’. Champion is the group’s third released single for 2022, the others being ‘Yes Man’ and ‘One Touch Remix’. According to the group “Champion is not just a song, it’s an affirmation; something to build confidence and restore hope.” This message was also echoed in the music video for Champion, which was released on Levy’s Heritage’s YouTube channel, along with the song on all digital platforms.
The group gave patrons a taste of Champion ahead of the official release date at the Sterling Gospel Awards on October 8 and was well received by those in attendance. Some would say that performing the song was prophetic, as the group walked away with the award for Group of the Year, this being their third time as recipients of the award in the category.
Many supporters and industry players have expressed congratulatory messages to Levy’s Heritage on social media for the quality of the composition and production of the song, as well as the cinematographic look of the visuals; many sharing the sentiment that they foresee its success on a global level.
Champion is coproduced by Levy’s Heritage Music, Ewan Simpson – principal of Red Carpet Music and Pinnacle Studios, as well as Brinton Haughton Productions. The song is mixed by Earl Smith Jr from Home Grown Studios and mastered by Jayvis McIntosh from Pioneer Music. Decorated Jamaican musicians Rhon Matthison and Kenroy Mullings also supported with instrumentation and all vocals recorded by Ovando, Oneil and Oshin Levy – Levy’s Heritage. Cinematography and editing were done by O’Raine Thomas and Nadia Roxburgh supported as Lighting Director.
