The highly anticipated follow up album to The Cure from Jah Cure was released August 30 2019. Four years on, Jah Cure released his 8th studio album. Royal Soldier features singles including Pretty Face, Life is Real, Risk It All, Telephone Love and Marijuana featuring Damien Marley.
The latest official video for the title track was also released and is doing the rounds on streaming platforms. The album features collaborations with various artists including Tory Lanez, Mya, Damian Jr Gong Marley, Capleton, Junior Reid, Popcaan, Melanie Fiona Yami Bolo and Phyllisia Ross.
Jah Cure has always brought a refreshing reggae sound and I would expect nothing different from the Jamaican crooner.
“I always have something good up my sleeve and I try to take time and put real love into it,” Jah Cure explained. “It’s like cooking food. It has to be balanced. It has to be right. Anybody can cook food to fill your stomach but it isn’t everybody who can put that love into it.”
The different collaborations definitely give Jah Cure an edge in is songs and we get to see a more rounded look at his craft. With a more modern approach to reggae in songs like ‘Pretty Face’, Jah Cure gets to be adventurous in his music making. He sticks to his signature songs on reality, consciousness and romance with a heavy hand on the pop tip.
Jah Cure has managed to woo and capture the hearts of many across the West Indies and the world, and we hope this album continues on the same rich vein. Time will tell on the success of Royal Soldier, but, judging from the first released tracks, fans are in for a real treat.
