Chart-Topping and Multi-Award Winning Group, AFTER 7 Releases Lead Single, “BITTERSWEET” From the Forthcoming Album, “UNFINISHED BUSINESS”, scheduled for release on May 14th, via the SRG ILS Group/RoseWorks label imprint
“BITTERSWEET” was written by Tradessa Willis and Trevon Trapper from the duo Shakespeare and produced by JCash Beatz. “Bittersweet is a song that delves into our favorite subject of Love, Life and Relationships,” shares Kevon. “I am fairly certain that if you live life long enough you will learn that you can’t have the sunshine without the rain,” he adds. “That is exactly what “Bittersweet” explores in most if not every relationship, the pain and pleasure that works hand and glove with people who love. This is where we get excited about delivering a song such as this because it allows us to put our storytelling skills to work,” mentions the group.
“To be honest, four years had already passed since we had a new project in the marketplace and with the advent of the pandemic, it felt like it was perfect time to dig in and get busy creatively,” said Kevon Edmonds. “Unfinished Business simply speaks to the fact we felt that there was still more in us musically to explore and share with our fans that have known us and even the ones that don’t.”
