“Only he who gives up is defeated/ The defeated are those who never fail / You don’t take the opportunity to lose / You don’t get the opportunity to win.”
Accomplished rapper JSWISS passionately proclaims those words over the horn and string-driven climax of “Defeat”, the single from he and Grammy-winning, producer, composer and trumpeter Michael Leonhart. This follow-up to their first two acclaimed singles, “BLACKOUT” and “On The Money” , “Defeat” is a hard-hitting, spirited and inspiring reminder that the true champions in life don’t run from failure, but overcome it. JSWISS and Leonhart with this track and the others have consistently crafted a trademark sound that is hip hop with a cinematic sheen that brandishes top shelf lyricism, performance and musicianship. “Defeat” is also one of three songs inspired by themes from award-winning author Paulo Coelho’s book “Manuscript Found In Accra”, all of which appear on the duos’ upcoming 5-song release, “The Alchemy EP”, which drops in January 2021.
