Ambition is a powerful thing and perhaps no-one in the music industry knows this better than CEO Fields. As he struggled to find his path in life, he endured several months of hardship that including having to live out of his car, but he never once stopped believing that he would get to where he wanted to go.
Fast forward a few years later and Fields had launched his own business and made several wise investments meaning he had the positive and comfortable life he had strived for, but he wasn’t done. Wanting to combine his financial knowledge with his passion for music, he embarked on a music career which continues to go from strength to strength. Following hot on the heels of his previous single “Yours”, Fields has now dropped “Dividends”, and ThisIsTheLatest are delighted to premiere its video.
Asked about the creative process regarding the video, Fields says:
“Dividends was another high energy shoot with my bros. I rented out the office building of a tech company down in the OC for this one, where the vibe is a bit different from the one in LA, a little more relaxed. I hired two of the most beautiful IG models I could connect with and made it a super vibe when the drinks and snacks came through. It was definitely one of my more favorite shots, really just homies being silly and enjoying the moment.”

Already a renowned LA singer, dancer and producer, Shyra Sanchez has been a name on the lips and in the ears of dance music fans since the release of her single “DJ Love Song”, but it’s her latest track that’s starting to REALLY create a buzz about and around her. In support of World Pride, she’s created and just shared a new anthem titled “Universal Love” and with the song and the video racking up the listens and views, Shyra spoke to ThisIsTheLatest to tell all about the powerful message behind the piece and what we all can do to make the world a better and more harmonious place for us all, and for future generations.
TITL: Where did the idea for “Universal Love” come from? Is it something you’d been working on or had set aside for some time or is a fairly new project piece for you?
Shyra Sanchez: The idea of “Universal Love” came from my understanding of knowing that the universe loves everyone unconditionally. It was on purpose the creator wanted us to understand in this time we are on this journey to teach and know love, that is what reflects the beauty in all humanity. For instance, the beauty of a rose and the equal beauty of a sunflower both different in their own right and collectively flowers. Nothing in creation was by mistake. We are collectively the human race. It’s the diversity that makes us beautiful…we are connected.
TITL: How did you get Traig involved on the track and what would you say he brings/adds to the piece?
SS: We collaborated together to discuss what could be an impactful message of what we could share and promote that emphasis unity and love.
TITL: With countries around the world celebrating Pride and encouraging others to support those in LGBTQ communities, what do you most want people to take from “Universal Love” when they hear it?
SS: We are all one love. We share the same journey as we travel through this lifetime. The honor is purely mine when given at the highest respect. We all must support the spirit of humanity through love. Trust me when I say, the power of the universe is elevated by just one act of kindness. The goodness and the intention empowers all things. Greatness is in everyone. So, from the bottom of my heart, it is a privilege to have each and every one of you to share in my life. I am inspired by you all to see the great things you are doing!
TITL: Where did the idea/concept for the video come from?
SS: The idea and video concept came from when consulting with my manager, John Singleton – he said that you should tell the truth in the message of the song so the video could relate to it.
TITL: Your track and video follow hot on the heels of Taylor Swift’s “You Need To Calm Down”, the video for which also focuses heavily on the LGBTQ communities and the vitriol many individuals have faced and continue to as well as the generalised hate that’s often directed at people across social media. Would you like to see more artists speaking about about the mistreatment of such people, and working to encourage everyone to be accepting of one another in this way? Why do you think many don’t?
Everyone has a freedom of speech. They can all use a platform to speak out against all injustice, against the world and humanity.
TITL: Finally then, there’s so much violence and sadness in the world, do you honestly believe that universal love might one day be possible? What will it take, from each and every one of us, to help bring that day closer to a reality?
SS: Each one of us has ability to practice Universal Love on a daily basis. Starting with loving ourselves if we learn to love ourselves then we will know how to treat one another. Live life on purpose! Do everything with intention. It is about being connected. Synchronize yourself with the energy of the universe bringing beauty to the presence of others. Spread joy, love, and kindness.
