Ce’Cile Is Coming With A Strong Message! (@IAMTHECECILE @bigfeetrecords)
At the end of March, Ce’Cile, the sing-jay commonly referred to as the ‘bad gyal of reggae-dancehall’ will – in collaboration with producer Josh Harris – release a puissant reggae song titled Let’s Work It Out.
On the inspirational tune Ce’Cile hits all the right notes as she reminds us of the golden rule, which is to treat others the way we would like to be treated. She sings:
“If I love you like I love myself respect in every way
And if I treat you like I treat myself then we should be ok
Love you like the birds and the bees and the honey and the weed
No need no label one love one race me a pree
What’s good for you
Is good for me”
Her strong message is complimented by the beautiful rhythm produced by Josh Harris and his team at Big Feet Records. Let’s Work It Out will be available on all streaming platforms on Friday, March 31st.
