about

18MillionRising presents Voices of Our Vote: #MyAAPIVote Album - a compilation album featuring 32 politically empowering tracks by an eclectic mix of Asian American musicians. Given the current political climate of anti-immigrant rhetoric and increased racial tension, turning out to vote as an AAPI community this November 8th is more important than ever. At 18MillionRising, we believe that music can shift hearts and minds, and with the release of the Voices of Our Vote: #MyAAPIVote Album, we believe music can activate Asian America to the polls.

This album was created in partnership with the Asian North Americans music curation platform TRAKTIVIST (traktivist.com); with Kollaboration (www.kollaboration.org) who supports APIs in arts and entertainment by showcasing and connecting creative talents; with the oldest currently running Asian American open mic space Tuesday Night Project (tuesdaynightproject.org); and the South Asian diaspora music and online mixtape site Mishthi Music (mishthimusic.com). All proceeds earned from the album will be donated to 18MillionRising (18MillionRising.org), an organization promoting AAPI civic engagement, influence, and movement by leveraging the power of technology and social media.

lyrics

I’m the girl who puts her bass in your face
shaking it left to right system bumping through the night
this is the life we lead
eat sleep breathe and repeat it loving it like I need it
I feel so good I feel so free
I wish the whole world could dance with me
this love is worldwide and I feel your vibe
don’t you ever stop its keeping me alive
I just wanna rock it with a global style
all around the world the movement’s globalized
I wanna feel your soul I wanna hear your voice
no need to back down
you know you have a choice
I wanna hear all the music inside you
I wanna see what moves you and inspires you
don’t ever compare just do your thing
there’s a place in the sun for all the styles we bring

For all the people across the globe
what you create is worth more than gold
don’t ever hold back give it to me real
keep the fire blazing with the love we feel (x2)

want you to give it everything tonight
give it your all take your time and do it right
want you to open up because I wanna know
inside there is a mystery you gotta let it show
the sound gets louder and louder from all the drumbeats and power
the musics harder and harder this is not mine this is ours
who I am is a flower the kind you wanna devour
gotta show me love keep it on lock
feels so good better not stop
lets break the rules tonight right to the other side
a place where we can fly something for you and I
I’ll be there for you if you’ll be there for me
and we can fight together in this struggle until we’re free
they wanna hold us back but we don’t wanna wait
I’ll never give up I’ll never hesitate
til this mission’s through I’ll do it all for you
and when the beat drops well that would be your cue

For all the people across the globe
what you create is worth more than gold
don’t ever hold back give it to me real
keep the fire blazing with the love we feel (x2)
