“Rock Steady Love” is a perfect example of Priest’s uncanny ability to blend elements of modern pop and R&B with classic reggae and lovers rock. “I am excited to work with VP Records again. The new song speaks for itself lyrically. I hope the fans enjoy it as much as I do,” said Maxi Priest. Produced by Clive Hunt and Michelle Williams, the sultry lyrics and smooth beat will transcend genre barriers and appeal to a broad audience.
