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.

Machel Montano’s proving to be a stand up guy. You know how some companies hate giving refunds?…well, seems like the Monk and his cohorts at Tribe Carnival, understanding of the current climate, and the global economic effects of the Covid-19 pandemic, are extending an olive branch to fetters.

In a YouTube message posted last week, Machel is heard explaining why the inaugural Melee cruise, which was originally carded to sail in May 2021, has been pushed back.

He said plans are still ongoing, but explained that for those who have been strongly impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic, forcing them to reconsider sailing with the Melee family, refunds would be afforded.
