GRAMMY® award winner and multiple time Billboard chart-topping artist, the iconic Buju Banton has suddenly lit up the music scene with a spanking new single called, “High Life.” The track features internationally renowned rapper, Snoop Dogg and is made available via Roc Nation Records/Gargamel Music/Def Jam Recordings.

With its message of being above the clouds yet firmly grounded, “High Life” notably marks the first official collaboration between these two legendary trailblazers, tracing a direct line between Jamaica and the LBC for the first time. The track delivers a hypnotic and head-nodding dancehall beat with horns and hazy synths and from the the very start, Buju gleefully carries an intoxicating and irresistible refrain, leaving Snoop to counter with reggae-inflected bars that urge, “Oh Mary Jane, will you please take me home?”  The new ganja man’s anthem arrived just in time for Thursday’s 4/20 commemoration.

“High Life” sets the stage for Buju’s anxiously awaited fourteenth full-length offering later this year – his first album since 2020’s universally acclaimed Upside Down 2020, which garnered a GRAMMY® Award nomination in the category of “Best Reggae Album” and earned rave “4-out-of-5 star” reviews on both sides of the pond from The Guardian and Rolling Stone, respectively. 

Buju capped off a busy 2022 with his most recent fan favorite single “Si Mi Clean” featuring Busy Signal. It tallied over half-a-million streams and picked up plugs from the likes of BET and more. The Caribbean reggae and dancehall master is set to perform his new hits, along with countless other fan favorites, at upcoming shows in Trinidad and Tobago on May 6th, St. Lucia on May 12th, and the Bahamas on May 19th.
