Maltese singer Kevin Paul has just released the official lyric video to his newly released single, One – and it’s got a bit of a secret message for any listeners who listen a little deeper.
“The song was written as a birthday present for the girl I was with four years ago, and instead of writing a message in a card I was giving her, I wrote lyrics,” Kevin told Lovin Malta soon after the video’s release.
He explained what inspired him to write the emotional ballad
“We were at the beach in Sliema, and as soon as I gave her the card to read what’s inside, I started singing the song to her,” he continued.
Dedicated to his ex-girlfriend, the touching song was very much written for her
“The song was specifically written for her – as a matter of fact, if you read the first seven verses underneath each other, you spell out her name,” he says.
Though the song has been written for years now – it was Kevin Paul’s first ever written track – it took a lot of urging and encouragement from Kevin’s friends for him to eventually release the track.

“Since it was something so personal and close to my heart it took some time for me to consider it as a song to be heard by the public, but now I feel that this was the right moment to release it since we both have mutual respect towards each other,” he said.
With One out now on Spotify, YouTube and iTunes, Kevin now looks towards his next release and new sources of inspiration for his music.
