Marietta native, Ronve O’Daniel, recently released a music video for “I Do This” from the album “He Speaks So Well.” Check it out below: I dare you to watch this video and not smile. I don’t care if you aren't a fan of hip hop or rap, this song and its message of strength and personal accountability are universal.

“I Do This” isn’t the only song on “He Speaks So Well” with an uplifting tone. The entire album has a light, at times danceable feel, with Ronve’s story telling ability shining through and creating an honest and open connection with the listener.

“The overall theme and vibe of the album is very positive and I purposely steer clear of anything offensive in terms of misogyny, violence, and other negative issues that hip hop is often associated with,” says Ronve. “I wanted to create something that gears more towards people like you and I who are regular everyday people who deal with everyday issues - working/bills, conforming, self-identity, following your dreams, parenting/childhood, etc.”

Ronve’s album is available for free download at http://ronve.bandcamp.com/. There are quite a few Cobb County and Atlanta references in there for those who might be interested in a little Easter egg hunting.

Also, ten high-fives to the first person who guesses what the title of the album is referring to without cheating.
