Hi Everyone! The weeks have been moving along soooo fast, it was just Monday and now it’s almost the end of Wednesday. I hope all is well, hope you haven’t missed me too much, I have a lot of backed up articles, so look out…
This lovely February morning, we have a new single from Protoje, tilted “Bout Noon”. 2018 has started off with a continuation of the highly appreciated 2017 trend, persistent amazing music releases. I really think he should have dropped this song before Valentine’s Day ’cause it’s for you and your lover. It is to set the mood to lock weh for the night, and day too… ’til about noon.
The single was produced by Winta James and Lamont ‘Monty’ Savory; it was written by Protoje while on a flight heading home. He’s singing about how much he missed his lady, and some of the reasons why he loves her. I also have to take a moment to big up my artiste’s word play! As well as that sweet guitar riff that can be heard under the chorus, it is addictive. The song makes me want to hug up my bae and rock away, just like the visuals in the lyric video.
Bout Noon is just a taste of the Reggae star’s upcoming fourth studio album, and we’re eagerly awaiting what he will be bringing to the sound system this time around. The single art was created by Yannick Reid, and the music video was created by Ikem Smith. Watch the video for “Bout Noon” by Protoje below.
“Me catch a prophecy, fi kotch you pon top of me,
A you property,
So settle pon it properly”

Today I have new reggae music for you, it is “Raggamuffin” by Koffee; the youngest new artiste on the scene. In Raggamuffin, Koffee “sing-jays” (deejays) perfectly on the beat; she keeps you paying attention, so as to not miss any flows. I’m finding it hard to even describe to you the niceness that is her flows. She introduces you to Original Koffee in this track, you get to know exactly what she’s about. Take a listen to Raggamuffin!
“It give me joy fi write rhyme pon beat.”
