Music Review by David E. Maxwell

A music review typically offers valuable insight about a song before it's released. The song "You better know what time it is" is a song written and recorded by Gospel/Christian Singer-Songwriter Palmyre. This song is set to be released sometime in August of 2018. The song captured and received my attention from the first drumbeat and melodic rhythm to the last chord progression and ending. It is a song with an important and inspiring message that encouraged and reminded me how precious and valuable time is and the life I live today.
The content of the song opened my eyes and took me back to a time when I felt there was plenty of time in life to clean up what I messed up. There is no question other people are also living in a time when standards of conduct are at an all - time low. Ungodliness, perversion, and an “anything goes” mentality is the norm. If only people can see what the singer Palmyre is stressing about knowing what time it is, perhaps they can also escape the wrath of eternal hell here on earth and in spirit.
While listening to this song, I thought about the grace and mercy that God has given me despite my past when I opposed his ways and calling. It is the power and grace of God through His compassion that gets us through life’s daily circumstances. Some folks may think that they have their life under control and they have all the time in the world to do the things they want to do, but as Singer - Songwriter Palmyre clearly states in the song, "You better know what time it is". We sometimes forget as we look around that this will someday all end. Just know that we are only passing through this life at the speed of 24 hrs a day and we must not take it for granted.
What makes Palmre’s music so unique is that she can sing in three different languages. She currently has a successful Haitian following and music that caters to the French/Creole community. Now Palmyre is building a collection of songs to promote an album in English. She intends to release 3 singles through Devine Jamz Gospel Network with "You better know what time it is" being the first. Listening to her strong and soulful voice one might say in this song Palmyre sounds like Tina Turner singing Christian/Gospel music. I am almost certain that listeners will enjoy and appreciate the new Single "You better know what time it is". To receive the early release Mp3 go to Palmyre's official website.
