REGGAE GOLD 2019 AVAILABLE JULY 26th- Pre-Orders and Dovey Magnum’s “Juju” Available This Friday June 28th
|The iconic Reggae Gold compilation series will return on July 26th. Pre-orders will be available this Friday July 28th. This Friday will also mark the release of the exclusive lead track and instant-grat “Juju” from Dancehall vixen Dovey Magnum. |
“Juju” is a sensual dancehall track that has all the makings of a hit. Dovey has been rising in stardom as her songs have been co-signed by some of the hottest artists in the reggae/dancehall industry and beyond, including rapper Lil Uzi Vert on his IG live. Her music blends a mainstream r&b, pop feel with the gritty and suggestive lyrics many dancehall vixens are known for.
There is no shortage of crowd pleasers and popular hits from the past year on “Reggae Gold 2019” including “Never Die” by Squash and “Government” by Chronic Law. Both artists have been recently known as two of the hottest, most popular acts out of Jamaica right now.
The compilation is rich with artists who have current and upcoming projects on VP Records this year. These include Naomi Cowan’s“Paradise Plum” which has been making waves on Reggae radio since its release last year and still continues its momentum, as well as “One Way” by Busy Signal, “Lights Out” by Estelle, “Marijuana” by Jah Cure featuring Damian ‘Jr. Gong’ Marley, “Life” by Christopher Martin, “Guess Who” by Tarrus Riley featuring Mykal Rose, “The Unforgiven” by Alborosie featuring Raging Fyah,“Heaven” by Jah9, “Land of Sunshine” by Beres Hammond and “To See” by Queen Ifrica. Other notable mainstream tracks from the past year “Hurtin Me” by Stefflon Don featuring French Montana and “Touch Down” by Stylo G featuring Nicki Minaj and Vybz Kartel make an appearance.
The cover of Reggae Gold 2019 was, just like It’s predecessors, a celebration of reggae heritage. The vision, led by creative director Stephanie Chin and art director Rebecca Lovinsguy , beautifully contrasts attitude & aesthetic. Models Chiara Charles, Fanta Conte and Kristia Tolode brought their own futuristic island flair to each still, styled by Lee Velvet and captured by photographer Savanna Ruedy. Together, with videographer Clifford Harry and help from creative assistant Jasmin James, the album cover personifies the exciting contemporary space that is reggae music in 2019.
“This year’s Reggae Gold compilation includes some of the best in our genre today”, said Neil “Diamond” Edwards, Senior Director of A&R at VP Records. Reggae Gold 2019 is poised to be the soundtrack of your summer,” he concluded.
