Jah Cure Releases The Lyric Video For “You Can’t See My Soul” (@ReggaeVibesMus1)

In the midst of his current trial – no pun intended – and tribulation, Jah Cure is now sharing the lyric video for his song featured on the recently released Rock All Riddim. The tune is titled You Can’t See My Soul, and after carefully listening to the words the consensus among several of his fans and supporters is that he seems to be struggling with a lot of demons. 

The Rock All Riddim, which is produced by Reggae Vibes Music, was released at the end of August. This means that Jah Cure‘s song would have been written and recorded long before that date, giving the production team sufficient time to mix and master it. However, the lyrics in the song gives the impression that it was authored after his arrest in the Netherlands. 

For those not familiar with the story; the beloved reggae singer is currently facing charges on the primary suspicion of attempted murder, as well as attempted manslaughter and aggravated assault after an altercation with a promoter in Amsterdam at the beginning of October. 

However, “Let he without sin cast the first stone.” These are words uttered by Jah Cure in You Can’t See My Soul

With the lyric video now out on YouTube it is becoming apparent that despite his difficult upbringing Jah Cure has been trying – challenging as it maybe – to become a better man. Our only hope is that his arrest in Europe does not deter that.

George Nooks’ Bio (@Tadsrecord)

From day one singer George Nooks has proven that when it comes on to his talent, he is multifaceted. It started in the early years of his career when he managed to score hits under two different names.

Most artistes find it difficult enough to make that connection under one moniker, but for George Nooks he pulled it off with his birth name and under his moniker Prince Mohammed – with songs such as Forty Legs, Bubbling and the very popular JC Lodge combination Someone Loves You Honey.

Fast forward to the 2000 and Nooks has once again shown that he cannot be boxed in where his talent is concerned. After chalking up one hit after another with his smooth voice delivering perennial favorites such as Left With A Broken Heart, Hero, Since I Fell For You, Riding For A Fall and the Chilites cover Homely Girl, Nooks turned his attention to gospel and the connection was instant!

Fast forward to 2021 and the impressive trail he has made since he stamped his mark with God Is Standing By to gospel classic covers including Ride Out Your Storm, I Must Tell Jesus, God Is Always There For Me and so many others which sees him being a top request for church as well as secular events.

How does he do it?

It’s all about love is what the artist will tell you as he says love for his mother and grandmother saw him honoring her last request that he sings the songs of Zion. His only regret is that she never lived to listen the first track he did for her, but in his heart he believes she knows.

Whether gospel or the feel good love songs for his many fans, George Nooks who got his first break in 1974 as a deejay on Discomix recording the covers of an artiste he held in high regard and admiration Dennis Brown’s Money In My Pocket and How Could I Leave.

Nooks has over the years since he first broke out on the scene continued recording albums such as Today and other singles.

As 2021 winds down Nooks has shown that there is no slowing down where his career is concerned. COVID-19 pandemic might have put a dent in live shows and slowed down the entertainment sector a bit, but when it comes on to getting a positive voice out there…there is no slowing down.

His latest album on the TAD’S imprint has shown that – Through It All – is an album for the times with tracks such as You Are God, He’ll Do It Again, Where Do I Go and God of the Mountain.

Commenting on the album, Nooks said it speaks to his life, the times and just to anyone who is looking for hope and encouragement.

Reggae Artist Mr. D Gets “A Vision” 

Jamaican reggae singer Mr. D, who is now based in Atlanta, Georgia, has just released a new single titled A Vision. The track, which has an early 80s dancehall vibe, details an actual intuitive insight he received one day after reading the Bible (something that is a part of his daily routine). 

Because of the strong religious language used throughout the tune, Mr. D – in a recent interview – was asked about his Faith; he simply stated that he is not a member of any religion or way of life, but that he is a vigorous believer in God Almighty.

The positive messages outlined on the record, combined with the laid back way in-which the rhythm was done, makes A Vision an ideal song to listen to while relaxing and / or meditating. It was produced by Douglas McLeary and executive produced by Donald Carr. All the creative work was done in Mr. D‘s Symbolic Fresh Music studio in the Atlanta area.

After staying in the background for years as a song writer for artists like The Silvertones and The MagnificentsMr. D is now forging ahead with his own career. A Vision, which is now available on all music platforms, will be featured on his upcoming album.
