Jamaica, land of beauty! There is something really special about the Island known as “The Land of Wood & Water“, and no matter what’s going on, many are proud to call it home.

Produced by Seville Records and Tekktroniic Muziq and sampling the infamous “Stalag Riddim” (originally by Winston Riley), Layla-Rei lets us in on what makes Jamaica so unique while Mama Raine provides backup.
