While 2020 has seen vast cancellations of music tours and other entertainment events due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the uplifting and conscious sounds of Reggae Music cannot be silenced.
Reggae Gold 2020 brings a solid collection of 18 Reggae songs with a touch of Dancehall to add a little flavor.
Listen Reggae Gold 2020
The album put a spotlight on two of the hottest reggae stars in Rasta Progrez and Mr. Bertus.
The album starts off with “Ganja for life” by Mr. Bertus, a song that has been top ten on all the Reggae singles charts around the world. The song is a beautiful tribute to Peter Tosh, Desmond Dekker and marijuana legalization. The Portmore artiste also blesses the album with “Plastic Smile” and “Jah make the mountains”.
Rasta Progrez’ first song on the album is “One Day” and blurs the already thin line between dancehall and Reggae Music. In fact, the beat to One Day bears some eerily similarities to the beat on “Toast” by the Reggae Music Grammy princess, Koffee. The Rasta artist also does a beautiful rendition of the song “Smile” by Fitzroy Face. Interestingly enough, both artists’ versions of the song are presented on the album.
One thing is for sure, Reggae fans who have never heard of Mr. Bertus and Rasta Progrez will get to know them in 2020 and based on the gems they have an the album, they both will be talked about in the reggae community for a long time to come.
The album also features songs from one of the hottest new female reggae crooners in Melanie who does a cover of Marcia Griffiths’ classic, “Stepping out of Babylon”.
The “Gold” album was established in 2014 by 18 Karat Reggae and does only showcased the hottest songs for the current year but it also features the hottest rising stars.
18 Karat Reggae Gold 2020 is available on iTunes, Amazon, Spotify and all major music outlets.
