Coming from the tragedy of an abusive relationship, Gibraltarian Kerria releases her new single “No More”. Hidden in the lyrics and the upbeat tempo are recounts of some of the abuse. Domestic violence is often seen as a topic still taboo to openly discuss in the world. Kerria sings about the feeling of having had enough and that there will be “no more”. This song has such an energy in it that it puts out a feeling of empowerment and makes the listener want to take action. With a somber topic like abuse, this song could have easily gone into ballad territory, yet the choice to go into a more upbeat and strong direction put power and energy into the music that is contagious.
The power in the song seeks to help other people who have been in abusive relationships by filling them with energy and a sense of inner strength. Listeners are encouraged to look within and find that inner strength to leave those abusive relationships and tell their abusers they will not be taking more of it. This song is meant to help those who feel they have no voice find theirs, and then in turn speak out and finally say “no more” to the person or thing that is holding them down. There should not be any shame in standing up for themselves and fighting for their freedom.
The accompanying music video sees a group of ninety Tik Tok influencers lending their personalities to help create something spectacular and meaningful. By using influencers in this video, Kerria will be able to get out this powerful and important message to a large number of people. The hope is that it will reach someone who needs the strength and push to be able to speak up.
