"One Day"

"One Day" is a song written and performed by American reggae singer Matisyahu, first released in 2008, his first single since Jerusalem (Out of the Darkness Comes Light). The song was also included as a last-minute addition to Matisyahu's album Light. The song expresses a hope for an end to violence, and a prayer for a new era of peace and understanding. It appeared on the Modern Rock Chart at number 21 and at number 38 on the US Rock Chart; also in March 2009 it debuted on the Billboard Hot 100 at number 90 and reached number 85.

In an interview with Spinner, Matisyahu told them: "'One Day' is the song I've been wanting to make since I started my career. It is an anthem of hope with a big beat, the kind of song that makes you bob your head and open your heart at the same time."[1] The song was sung at a vigil for the victims of the Pittsburgh synagogue shooting in the Jewish community of Squirrel Hill.[2]



The official remix for the song features Akon and was released to radio stations in May 2008. A second remix featuring Infected Mushroom was released in July 2008.

There is a version of the song featured on Listen Up! The Official 2010 FIFA World Cup Album, featuring Nameless.
