Next month a long awaited album will be released by Jah Cure. The new studio album, The Cure (VP Records) was co-produced by him with the help of reggae producers like Christopher “Sketch” Carey, Clive Hunt, Llmar “Riff Raff” Brown, Justin “Jus Bus” Nation and Trevor “Baby G” Washington James.
The Cure features recent hits like his #1 reggae chart-topping John Legend cover “All of Me” (which received over 5 million YouTube views), “Rasta” (currently #1 on Clinton Lindsay’s NY reggae singles chart), “That Girl” and “Life We Live” as well as brand new singles including “No Friend of Mine” “Made In California,” “I Surrender” and many more.
The 13-track album, set to be released on July 10, is a return to roots reggae and lover’s rock with R&B and pop-fused elements. Cure did not have the typical road to stardom. The Montego Bay native just began his musical career, with reggae veterans like Capleton, Sizzla and Beres Hammond taking him under his wing, when it came to a halt after a controversial case that led to incarceration. He rose back to popularity later, after releasing multiple acclaimed albums such as Free Jah Cure, Ghetto Life and Freedom Blues. Some featuring collaborations with Rick Ross and Jazmine Sullivan.
