This is Me brings an old-school R&B pop tune to the 2020s, paired with soothing vocals and well-thought heartfelt lyrics. The song becomes catchy but also explores not needing external validation to love who you are. The feel-good track is about going for you and your dreams, self-improvement, and never giving up on yourself despite the thoughtful yet opposing opinions that relatives and friends may have about fiery topics that most of us may relate to, like our “unconventional” career choices. Positivity is shared across Prema’s music to have a deeper emotional connection with his listeners, incorporating positive mindfulness (Prema refers to this as,“a good food for thought”). His belief in inspiring and empowering people and their mindsets led Prema Smith to establish Self Appreciation Day. A day to focus on loving and appreciating who you are while advocating for awareness of mental health amongst communities. Prema Smith releases

This is Me on April 28th on Spotify, Apple Music, YouTube Music, and all other music streaming services.
