With the release of 'Story We Tell', Argel MDR is releasing his EP “Reign”. This EP explores the importance of self-advocacy and happiness. Each of the songs explores a part of his lived experiences and concludes with an action in the hopes of finding the meaning of life and true joy. Argel MDR’s debut EP chronicles a point in his life where he discovers the courage to live life to the fullest and the promise of a brighter tomorrow.


Reign” is all about finding our ways to thrive and own who we are. To “reign” in our lives and not care about what other people will say about us.

Argel MDR mentions that the title song, "Reign” explores the dilemma I feel as a person of colour who sees what others have that I don’t have. It’s so easy to fall into the trap of feeling like I am not enough and that I will not be able to achieve my dreams.

The song also explores the social injustices that the IBPOC community endures and how
the community didn’t find it a reason for them to give up; Instead, the community found a way to prove to everyone how we can reign our own lives no matter what we have, or don’t have. We are worthy of wearing our crown and reigning our
lives to the fullest.

Reign’s musical elements traverse the concept of time through beats and synth. The song is inspired by the beauty of nature, especially the rivers and the oceans. “With One Republic and Of Monsters and Men influences, this electro-pop song has a regal vibe, with a sense of self-ownership and the optimism to carry on".

Argel MDR works best on International pop, R&B Drama, Eccentric, Early project, International potential, & Upcoming projects..
