New Reggae Video: Lavish – Irresponsible (@JUGGLERZRADIO)

LavishLavish enters the music world on a high level with her first single “Irresponsible” on Jugglerz Records – a label that truly believes in her talent.

Musically inclined, she abstracts the sloping melody from the hurting content of her song: People do stuff other than they should, because they don’t take up any responsibility. “Waan buy weed but you can’t buy food” is a stinging punchline that simply says it like it is. Her unique voice elevates the listener from the first note, the sound of Lavish is irresistible.
