Dante Bowe trades polished perfection for relatable musings on “okay.". A reminder that profound breakthroughs can be found in the midst of mundane circumstances, the happy-go-lucky track inspires us to hold firm to our foundation during life’s changing seasons. The third single from Bowe’s new album circles, “okay.”’s handclapped rhythms, groovy bass and open, airy synths bring a sense of optimism that’s rooted in positivity.
Recorded entirely on an iPhone, the video for “okay.”, is a lighthearted compilation of at-home visuals featuring Bowe, musician and actor Trevor Jackson and producer LAEL as they navigate their way through quarantine. From building forts to playing video games, the trio find joy in the average, slowing down from the hustle to show that even in the same old cycles, hope can be found in keeping faith. It playfully alludes to the fact that it’s only in the quiet times that we’re able to hear the voice of God.
You may recognize Dante Bowe’s signature raspy vocals and raw penmanship from his stints on TV, or his eminence in the modern church music scene as a worship leader at Bethel Music and Maverick City. In all of those experiences, he’s come to one realization: it’s only in looking above that he’s been able to keep his head above the waters. Bowe’s message to everyone trying to get unstuck is simple: with patience and positivity, things will get better.
