“Wrong Side” is more than just a single; it’s an anthem for those caught between their dreams and the demands of daily survival. The track resonates with anyone who’s ever found themselves hitting ‘snooze’ on their alarm clock, wishing they could call out from their 9 to 5 job—not due to illness or apathy, but because they yearn for something more fulfilling. The lyrics “Been snoozing my alarm for the past 45 / I wanna call out, but I ain’t the reason,” encapsulate this shared human experience with poignant simplicity.

This song emerges from Shameka’s own narrative—a narrative deeply rooted in her early love for music and storytelling. Inspired by legends like Babyface, Diane Warren, and Aster Dane, she embarked on her musical journey at the tender age of 14. Though once an avid basketball player, music offered an unmatched solace and sense of purpose that eventually led her to relocate to Philadelphia. It was there that she honed her craft amidst its rich musical heritage and vibrant culture.

Philadelphia proved fertile ground for Shameka’s creative growth. Its influence is palpable in “Wrong Side,” blending elements of soulful introspection with gritty realism—a testament to the city’s impact on her artistry. This song signifies not only Shameka’s evolution as a musician but also heralds her upcoming EP—an eagerly awaited collection promising further exploration into themes of aspiration, resilience, and authenticity.
