Growing up I was very influenced by Reggae and Dancehall. I grew up on Bob Marley, Patra, UB40, Sister Nancy, Lucky Dube, and Blackky.. the list goes on till my memory fails me.
When I talk about my music, I say it is a Fusion. Always a fusion. If it wasn’t I don’t think it could ever exist. Somehow, in every album, there’s always that one song that tugs at my love for Reggae and Dancehall.
Front/Back was one of the first songs VT (producer) and I recorded together. I’ll never forget how I felt when the drums hit my chest. The lyrics came rolling out my tongue with effortless ease.
But it was the Rap verse at the end that really put things in perspective for me.
These days, no matter how hard I try, I cannot run away from myself. If I don’t hear it in my head, my music will say it to me. I’m learning to respect, over, and serve. I’m learning.
When I got back home from the studio that night, I played the studio version on my phone again and again and again. I couldn’t get enough of it.
This song makes me want to get up and dance, even though I haven’t bussed a move in a long while. It tugs selfishly at those hidden, raw parts of me that are dangerously feminine and wild. It makes me come alive with feisty hidden agendas that are all mine to execute.
What I’m saying is, I love this tune a lot and I love how it makes me feel. Especially the verse at the end.
What about you?
