Reggae Revolution’s “Lay Me Down” Featured In Latest @RaisingKanan Episode!


Reggae Music is just something that creeps into every part of your life, and it’s such a good thing. While we enjoy Reggae through our headphones and speakers, others are caught off guard through some of their favourite TV shows. One such show is a spinoff of the popular “Power” series called “Power Book III: Raising Kanan“. The series gives a backstory on one of the Antagonists from the original “Power” series, Kanan (played by Rapper/Exec. Producer 50 Cent), and in it’s latest episode, we hear a lil Reggae courtesy of US Reggae Band, Reggae Revolution’sLay Me Down“.

Released through Fervor Records in 2006, “Lay Me Down” is a Reggae love song from Reggae Revolution. The single was featured on the band’s “Reggae Revolution!” album. Reggae Revolution is a band that was formed in the 2005 by Multi-Instrumentalist/Songwriter/Producer Robert Cote in Phoenix, Arizona, and features Mike Bailey, Eric Eugene, and Katherine Rickling as members. The band was formed as a side project by Cote for Fervor Records, and after the band’s only album release, they disbanded. The “Lay Me Down” track can be heard in episode 2 of “Raising Kanan” during a scene featuring Actor Omar Epps.

OLDIES SUNDAY: Aswad – Don’t Turn Around (1988)


Don’t you just love hearing a Reggae cover version of a popular song? Well you’ll love our selection today on “Oldies Sunday“! Today we go back to the 80’s with UK Reggae Band, Aswad with the track, “Don’t Turn Around“. Produced by Chris Porter, this was released through the Mango Label and Island Records in 1988. The song was originally a Tina Turner B-Side written by Diane Warren and Albert Hammond and released in 1986, but gained the attention of Aswad when they heard Luther Ingram’s 1987 cover version. The Reggae version turned out to be a hit for the Band as it was the #1 single in New Zealand and UK (with a Silver certification), and a top ten hit in Norway, Ireland, Netherlands, and Belgium. It also influenced Swedish Pop group Ace of Base’s cover version which the Band helped to produce.

Aswad went on to release over 21 albums and scored a couple more hits, but “Don’t Turn Around” is still a crowd favourite. Nice up your Sunday by checking out the track below, and share with a friend. Show us some love/follow us on Instagram at @13thStreetPromo.
