Columbia Recording artist Mishon releases the visual to “Legal Tender”off his Valentine’s Day EP entitled “The Gift.” Exploring the journey into a girls’ life that eventually becomes troubled. Through time she gives up on love, family and goes into a haunting future that puts money over self worth. She goes through stages of domestic violence and prostitution for worldly and material possessions.
“Legal Tender” gives the audience a realistic depiction of what goes on in the lives of many young women. Although it exposes the dangers of prostitution as well as domestic violence, it also sheds light to a promising future where young girls can achieve success and true love if they veer away from a dangerous lifestyle.
Words From Mishon:
“I feel like this is what’s needed right now. I went through this situation with my ex so this song has always been special to me. After we separated she chose the fast life and lost who she was. I did this song a year ago and with the events taking place in Nigeria (#bringbackourgirls) and seeing some these young girls in U.S. choosing a fast life style; I decided to put a visual to the song. Hopefully, if at least one person sees this and it changes their life for the better, then I’ve done my job.”
