Mr. SOS revives the important question, "what happened to peace," on this anti-war anthem, "Peace & Prosperity" produced by Maxamill. The reflective tune has a somber and nostalgic vibe that ties into the positive message being passed. Written for Ukraine and all victims of abuse, SOS delivers a laidback but concise rhyme scheme over the sublime production made up of hard bass grooves, hypnotic guitar melodies, and a sax loop that sounds like a classic hip hop version of Marvin Gaye's "What’s Going On". Mr. SOS starts the track with a tragic tale of domestic abuse, focusing on a character named Janie who confronts her abuser, and in the second verse, he serves positive and inspiring words dedicated to Ukraine and everyone around the world who shares solidarity with the Ukrainian people, as well as a message for all people and leaders.
"Peace & Prosperity" is now available on all DSPs here, with cover art by Ukrainian artist and graphic designer Mikhailo Polivanov.
