Kristian Bryant AKA Gemini Wired is an R&B recording artist out of Massachusetts. Growing up entertaining with dance, modeling and singing, it’s no surprise that she settled on recording music so her voice could be heard. And we’re happy she did. The track “What Now” is an encouraging anthem for all those affected by bullying and the depression and pain that goes along with it. The message behind the video is to let anyone listening know that they’re not alone.
Through her music and her anti bullying campaign, we believe she can reach those who may need this message the most. Gemini Wired is busy finishing up her debut EP and when she does, we’ll be sure to have an update.
“What Now” features a soft and slow sound at first that transfers into a pleasant and catchy chorus. It has an early 2000’s vibe to it that I really enjoy. It sounds a bit like early Jennifer Lopez with a dash of Rihanna and Nicki Minaj. If I had to nitpick anything, it would be that the filters on the song almost cloud her voice when it’s obvious there’s plenty of talent there just waiting to be heard. Towards the breakdown at the end of the song, you’re able to hear her more clearly and can fully embrace the message behind the song.
A video for the song was recently released that you can view below. Warning: The video does feature depictions of bullying which may be triggering to some.
Below is a quote from Gemini Wired about her goals and passion for the song.
“I go by the name Gemini Wired and I myself have been bullied in the past. I’ve always been an advocate even as a kid. Bullying hurts, and it can make you severely depressed. Nobody deserves to be made fun of, picked on, or beat up because of who they are. I know exactly how much more it can hurt mentally than it can physically at times. I believe it’s crucial to report it whenever we see it occur before it becomes worse. If we can prevent by doing so it’s always a win for the potential victims.
The message behind my video “What Now” is to encourage everyone to go for whatever you believe in no matter how many times others may put you down or try to get in your way. We won’t let them. These bullies cannot beat us. My video also represents the consequences for people hurting others and how it always goes back to karma. I want my “What Now?” song & video to inspire as many people as possible. There’s kids that have so much to offer and don’t know it because they want to hide their talents or intelligence. I don’t want them to be ashamed anymore. I want them to know people like myself and all these organizations have their backs. “What Now!”
I’m always happy to see someone take on the issue of bullying when so many people won’t. We recommend you guys check out the song and continue to spread the message of love and not hate.
