Many people may remember veteran reggae artist Screwdriver from songs like “We Rule,” “Soundboy Killa” and most notably, his mega hit “No Mama (Sharon Yuh Pregnant?),” which was released in 89. Although the singer continued to share several singles and albums over the years, he has kept somewhat of a low profile, only surfacing to do his shows and record for selective producers.
Screwdriver‘s tranquil lifestyle may be interrupted in the new year as one of his recently released singles is beginning to trend. The song is a catchy lovers-rock tune called Longing For Your Touch, done in his signature style.
Longing For Your Touch is one of 15 songs featured on Upstairs Music‘s The Train Is Coming Riddim. The compilation, which was first shared in September, has so far produced at least four heavily rotated songs: Kristine Alicia‘s Roots Rock Reggae, Wayne Armond‘s Yaya and title tracks performed by Ken Boothe and Dwight Pinkney respectively. Screwdriver‘s song is now the fifth.
Fans and supporters of the Saint James artist should not be surprised by the success of this track, as this seems to be the result whenever Screwdriver collaborates with Danny Breakenridge of Upstairs Music. Persons may remember that the two released the African Union album in 2013; and much like this new single, it also had great reviews.
