Following the release of Popcaan’s Great is He album, the reggae community gets to enjoy another reggae stars album. Siccature Alcock popularly known as Jah Cure released his 9th studio album Undeniable. Currently serving a 6-year prison sentence in a Dutch prison for keeping it real, Jah Cure looks to make another significant impact like he did in 2005 with his breakthrough tracks Longing For and Love Is. The tracks were illegally produced as he was serving another 8-year prison sentence.
A real bad boy indeed, Jah Cure apologized to his fans for his current predicament and promised to set the record straight about his actions in his next album (which will probably be released while he is still in prison).
“I would like to apologise to all my fans all over the world for the situation that I have put myself in and also them, ‘cause I know they are hurting too,” he said.
I am not too sure how much his fans or myself are hurting, however, I’ll accept the apology. Or maybe I will just accept the music and not judge the artist. Classic R Kelly predicament isn’t it?
Undeniable was produced by Jah Cure and Swedish producer Hamed ‘K One’ Pirouzpanah. The album features 11 tracks with standout tracks like Think About it, and the title track. The album also has Ghana’s Stonebwoy featuring on Everything and Kaylan Arnold on Undeniable.
Musically speaking the album certainly deserves your time. Being his 9th album Jah Cure has proved himself in the industry and the album is a testament to that. As I said earlier it’s all about separating the man from the music and looking past his indiscretions. Or at least wait till he says his side of the story. Not sure if the album is Grammy worthy but it’s a good marker for the year. Popcaan’s dancehall/reggae album is in the same conversation but time will tell how the voting will go.
