Taste Victory’ is Nesbeth’s first recording for the UK based Entertainment Soul imprint, it’s a song full of optimism for the future, whilst reflecting on the reality of not such good times in the past. The video stylishly portrays this by depicting the reggae star as a boxer, who is staged in the ring to battle with his negative past self. Of course, the star is victorious and the sweet refrain is sung over & again, “..now I can taste victory..”
As with many great songs, it’s literal interpretation could go many ways. Nesbeth himself chose to use this visual angle to give encouragement to those that live with self doubt, that personal achievement is often only held back by this negative internal struggle and that it must be overcome to fully flourish. It is certainly possible for all and if you’re ever finding it hard just remember – “the hotter the battle, the sweeter the victory!”.
