OLDIES SUNDAY: ShineHead – Try My Love (1992)

Today, we celebrate a legend in Reggae/Dancehall. He was one of the Artists who helped to kick off that run of 90s Hip Hop/Reggae/Dancehall collaborations. He gained success during that time, and made classics. That man who we’re featuring on Oldies Sunday is Shinehead. We featured him in this section nearly 10 years ago, but today we celebrate his 60th Birthday (April 10) by featuring his single (and one of this Editor’s favourites), “Try My Love“.

Produced by Dave Hall and featuring background Vocals by R&B group Intro, Shinehead’s “Try My Love” was released through Elektra in 1992. The track finds Shinehead delivering his signature Singjay style as he spits slick lyrics to a young lady he’s admiring. With promises of dates, love, excellent care and treatment, to blowing her mind every time, Shinehead shares that he has what it takes to make her his. All he needs her to do is try his love, and she’ll never need another.

“Try My Love” became one of Shinehead’s popular singles, and was featured on his 1992 Album, “Sidewalk University“. Shinehead is still active in various circles, and can be found rocking the Mic at stage show near you, and releasing new music.
