Reggae Ambassadors Third World have released their highly anticipated 22nd studio album titled More Work to Be Done on August 16, 2019.
The album is produced by multi-Grammy-award winning artist/producer Damian “Jr. Gong” Marley and features an incredible array of artists: Chronixx, Tarrus Riley, Busy Signal, Pressure Busspipe, Tessanne Chin and Damian “Jr Gong” Marley, courtesy of Ghetto Youths International.
More Work to Be Done brings together sounds from every corner of the globe. Lead singer AJ Brown delivers smooth and powerful vocals with the accompaniment of the entire band’s harmonies throughout the album, bringing out that true signature Third World sound in every song. With a touch of new flavor, inspired by the band’s vision and their producer and Jr Gong, the album ranges from traditional to contemporary roots-reggae, lovers rock, jazz-infused rhythms to heavy hitting dancehall with driving bass; an 11-song masterpiece that demonstrates these accomplished musicians’ consistency, growth and transformation.
The 2018 JCDC song contest winner, iDeology, recently released his song and video dubbed “Pum’kin Belly.” The upbeat reggae record was produced by established producer Steven Ventura for the Board House Productions label. Steven describes the song as follows: “Good old fashion reggae music, spiced up with some modern technology.”
Based on the overwhelming positive feedback the record got when it was first released, iDeology and the Board House team thought it prudent to immediately work on the visuals. As such, the official video for “Pum’kin Belly” was shot and made public a few weeks ago.
