Painting myself as a reggae/dance hall aficionado would be a bold-faced lie. In fact, the fondest memories I have of the genre are house parties in undergrad. And half of those times I was upstairs in the smoke room.
Nevertheless, I’m well aware know who Beenie Man is, which is why I didn’t mind giving his new tune, “I Know,” a listen. My critique? Not bad, but again, my prowess in the genre leaves much to be desired. For all I know, this could end up being one of the biggest reggae/dance hall songs of the summer.
Expect to find this on the 20-year vet’s new EP, The Greatest Gallis, dropping on Future Day. Also known as Earth Day. More commonly referred to as April 22.
