.@RyginKingO Covers The Classic “Stop That Train” With The Late U-Roy!


In February 2021, the world lost a Music legend, and a Jamaican Icon named Ewart “U-Roy” Beckford. A man who has greatly contributed to the ever changing musical landscape, you can call him the Originator of how you put the lyrics together. While the world misses him, there were talks about putting together a final album for the great U-Roy. It was revealed with the title, “Solid Gold U-Roy“, and one of the singles that made the album features one of Dancehall’s hottest acts, Rygin King on a cover of the classic single, “Stop That Train“.

Produced by Sharna Liguz, Youth, and Zak Starkey, we see two Artists from two great generations join forces to give us something different. The single covers the 1967 version of the Keith & Tex Rocksteady version of “Stop That Train”. The 1967 version is cover/remake of The Spanishtonians’ 1965 Ska original that speaks of a woman whose boyfriend is leaving her via train, and she wants to join him on board. U-Roy also released a cover version in 2009/10. Both Keith & Tex and U-Roy & Rygin’s versions speak from a man’s perspective however. While many are familiar with Rygin King’s style of music, they’d be surprised to know what he enjoys in his downtime, and seeing this collaboration is just a fraction of what can happen. With the late U-Roy’s signature toasting/deejaying, this an “OG meets the Young General” moment, and we know the posthumous U-Roy album has a lot more gems. This could pave the way for a lot more collaborations like this, and we’re here for it! Call us up so we can be a part of it.

Continue sleeping in peace, Daddy U-Roy!
