An 11 track album dedicated to the world by Jamaica’s internationally adored reggae hit maker, Tarrus Riley, is about to be unleashed on August 28th. “Healing” is the the first Jamaican reggae album written and recorded entirely during COVID-19.

In true Tarrus fashion, the entertainer hosted a Zoom session on Thursday night, sharing with media from around the world, a few of the singles that make up “Healing.” Down to earth and cool as could be, he smiled and resonated the irie Jamaican vibe throughout the hour long listening party. He even took a few questions, telling of his personal handling of the global lockdown experience and expressing optimism for live shows in the not so distant future. “Music has kept me sane during this time,” said the ‘She’s Royal’ singer. He said he’s not one to want for much else and indicated that he’s been hard at work, spending quite a lot of time over the lockdown period, in studio. The 11 track deliverable attests to Riley’s admission.

The album features a collaboration that Riley is particularly excited about. Expressing brotherly love for Jamaican dancehall beauty, Shenseea, the artist introduced a single, which features the dancehall artist. Smiling and excitedly hyping the track, Tarrus gave his audience a sneak peak into the single, which hears Shenseea lifting her vocals like never before heard. “You ah go hear the rest of it when the album release on August 28th,”’ he said gleefully. The track is undoubtedly one of the heavy hitters on the album.

Among the medicinal melodies being offered by the reggae singer are tracks like “Remember Me,” “T.I.M.E” “Babylon Warfare,” “My Fire,” with Dexta Daps and “Blessings.” In a pre release note on the album, the releases are described as highly topical yet spiritual. Tarrus notes that this album, ‘Healing’ is given to the world at a time of unprecedented uncertainty ; a time when one must imagine a future where mankind must move forward without the comforts of the past.

Amid unprecedented upheaval over the present state of global economies and intense pressure on healthcare systems worldwide, mass deaths and a mandate by the World Health Organisation for world leaders to remove Covid-19 restrictions, well loved, reggae artist Buju Banton has broken his silence.

Buju, in three very honest social media posts on Wednesday, told the world that he is done with Covid-19, suggesting that it has been a plan all along. Known for his vocal stance against injustice whether via his music or perfectly articulated epressions, Buju who continues to enjoy his freedom following years of incarceration in the United States between 2009 and 2018, said, “We are tired of you intellectual fools trying to tell us how to live our lives. If you are so smart why haven’t you found the cure for cancer?”

The entertainer’s outbursts come one day after a video for the remix of Koffee’s single “Pressure,” on which his powerful, raspy vocals are featured, was uploaded to YouTube.
