On the new single and video, MALACHI notes:“‘Soul is mine is about my first break up. Ending a long relationship was hard for me and it brought me to a dark place emotionally. But I wouldn’t be me if it wasn’t for the lesson I learned from that whole experience. I hope you can relate to it and know that after the heartbreak and loss, is healing and growth.”
Filmed in black and white, the Michael Garcia directed video sees MALACHI sitting at the piano singing his expressively emotive lyrics while a single dancer en pointe moves in tune with the melody. Produced by Shiri Fauer and Bruno Breil (Hidden Pictures LLC/21 Entertainment Group Inc.), the video perfectly captures the tone of the powerful new track.

“Soul Is Mine” arrives as the first taste of new music from the rising young artist since his latest single, “Son of a Gun” released at the end of last year. 2019 also saw the release of MALACHI’s debut mixtape, Bread Winner, and a number of stand out singles including, “We Don’t Mind”, “I Got You”, “San Fernando Wine”, and his major label debut single, “Right Now”.
Growing up on the outskirts of Toronto, 22-year-old rising artist MALACHI, spent his childhood surrounded by music of all genres. From his Trinidadian-born father’s reggae career to his mother’s favourite R&B singers like Mary J. Blige, Aaliyah and Destiny’s Child, music was always part of his environment. MALACHI began actively participating in music when his grandmother had him join her church’s gospel choir at the age of 4. Over the last three years the emerging artist has been in the studio bringing his songwriting to life. Now, he’s ready to release the outpouring of creativity and share it with the world.
