What musical format is better than reggae and dancehall in bringing out the feelings of a warm, exotic day? The thermometer could read “Antarctica” outside but when those steel drums and patrois and/or Caribbean accents begin to make a marriage, the brain’s perception begins to heat things up.
And who better than deliver to the people on a stagnant winter year than the self-proclaimed, yet rarely disputed King of the Dancehall, Beenie Man.
The ageless Grammy Award-winning legend is embarking on his thirtieth-something studio album with The Greatest Gallis, courtesy of VPAL Records and MD Entertainment. “I Know”–a tale of charm, seduction and lubrication (hey, it is what it is), serves as the first single and the flavor is jubilant as it is baked from the classic recipe.
The Greatest Gallis drops in stores and online retailers on April 22. Fans can stream “I Know” below, pre-order the album on iTunes and hit the flip to see Beenie’s North American tour dates. It’s going down this year.
