Cola – “Someone To Talk To” [Video]

August 8, 2017

By Kaitlin

California’s very own Cola is a budding artist that has taken on the art of creating music to channel his aggressions–those of which many can relate to. He’s never really opened up about his own personal mental health dealings, so his recent vulnerable moment via IG, as well as his latest release, “Someone To Talk To” comes in as something special. Inspired by Linkin Park frontman Chester Bennington’s recent suicide, Cola’s new release is simply a message to tell you, the listener, that if you’re going through some sh*t, you’re not alone… and if you’re at peace, somebody (probably very close to you) isn’t. This new drop is a push to encourage and support the ones that need you. Take this as a reminder to reach out to those who you love and see how they’re doing. You never know what someone could be going through.
