Jamaican Artist Don Scrue Shares Reggae-Infused EP ‘King Of New York’

Published

on

Today, 5th November, Jamaican Reggae/Danchall star DON SCRUE releases 4 track EP ‘King of New York’. The project is a testament to Don Scrue’s ability to effortlessly intermix Dancehall, Reggae, and Hip Hop elements, taking listeners on a sonic ride reflective of his musical palette.

Aiming for chart success, DON SCRUE wants to break into global markets and is aiming for the top with his ‘King Of New York’ EP. The artiste who has been featured in the Jamaican Observer and Ameyaw Debrah, offers themes of hood credibility, struggles, self-reflection, and self-belief along the way. ‘King of New York’ stems off the back of his last EP ‘Sensual Gratification’ which enjoyed trans-continental success.

On ‘Vibe’, Scrue assures you that he and his gang “bring the vibe” wherever they pull up. ‘Fast Cash’ is an epistle about the insatiable desire to make money. He talks about the urge to make more mulla to level in the society and how more money leads to more problems. Scrue channels new energies into ‘Effortless’ as he boasts about his prowess in easily getting the girls that tickle his fancy. ‘Bad Blood’ takes a deeper look into the activities that take place in the hood. The hood clashes and tussles for supremacy.

Production credits for the four tracks go to Studio 91 Records. Speaking on the EP, Don Scrue says:

“I felt like it was time for me to put out another body of work, my last EP (Sensual Gratification) was released a year ago and it performed very well, so basically what I am trying to say is that I was inspired by my previous project. I have always been self-motivated this is what keeps me going.”

Philipa Baafi Releases ‘Privilege’ | LISTEN

Published

on

Ace Ghanaian gospel musician, Philipa Baafi, has released yet another hit single, dubbed, ‘Privilege’, which has already started enjoying airplay on radio stations nationwide.

The song with easy lyrics begins with a powerful instrumentation followed by a strong vocal delivery.

Moment after the instrumental and deep vocals come the main lyrics which seek to preach gratefulness to the ‘Giver of Life’.
The song reminds everyone that waking up every morning is not by our own might and strength, but by the sheer benevolence of the Almighty God who is the giver of Life.

The single seeks to reiterate the fact that each year begins with millions of people having dreams, visions and activities they want to accomplish but sadly the year ends with most of them (siblings, neighbours, friends, loved ones) who are not counted among the living. Philipa therefore concludes that it is a privilege to be counted among the living.

Philipa, who is also a Physician Assistant (PA), posits that this song was inspired by an emotional experience she witnessed during her clinicals as part of her program. She tells a story of how a neonate (less than a month-old baby) was presented with a respiratory distress. As a result, the baby was gasping for breath, foaming, poo pooing and wee weeing on herself. It was only after oxygen was administered that she was stabilized.

“The look on the mothers’ face when her baby was stabilized and could finally sleep was so refreshing and humbling. After this experience, I came to the realization that the oxygen we take for granted is not our RIGHT but just a PRIVILEGE”. Philipa concludes.

The ace is known for her style of blending the pidgin with Twi but this time, it was the British English which took portions of the song making it unique.

Privilege is one of the gospel songs that would encourage every soul to praise his or her maker.

Philipa Baafi is married to Kwame with whom she has two kids, Adom and Sika. The family worships at Pentecost International Worship Centre (PIWC) West Hills, Accra.
