Happy Sunday folks! Today we’re keeping the same 2000’s energy on “Oldies Sunday“! Today’s selection comes from Reggae Artist, Abijah with the single, “Revelation“! Produced by Mikey Bennett and released through Matluk Music in 2001, the song finds Abijah showcasing spiritual and prophetic lyrics as he spoke about pending wars and injustice that ravishes the world, and calling on the Lord. A near miss of death and a dream were the inspiration for this song as Abijah was within inches of a stray bullet during a shootout while living in Vineyard Town, St. Andrew.
After the release of “Revelation”, the song quickly became a hit and placed Abijah as an Artist to watch. The song spent 30 weeks on the Jamaican Music Charts, and found him performing in various locations around the world. “Revelation” was also featured on his 2003 “Abijah” album, and various Reggae Compilations shortly after. In the time that followed since the single’s release, Abijah went on to release more music, and perform with the likes of Tevin Campbell, King Yellowman, Nadine Sutherland, and Beenie Man with whom he remixed “Revelation” with. “Relevation” went on to be Abijah’s most recognizable track that he still performs to this day.

The 2000s gave us some awesome Dancehall music, don’t you agree? Today’s Oldies Sunday selections brings some energy from that era courtesy of Busy Signal! Today we feature his breakout hit, “Step Out“! Produced by Equiknoxx Music on the “Step Out Riddim“, this was released in 2005 and had eyes and ears focused on Busy as he brought a unique sound to the game.
The song proved to be successful as it helped to propel the Deejay onto the forefront of the Dancehall scene. The success didn’t come without controversy however as various Producers were credited to producing the track. In the end, the true Producers were given the proper recognition, and the track went on to be featured on many compilations including Busy Signal’s 2006 debut album, “Step Out“. Since “Step Out”, Busy has went on to release many more hit singles and projects. Though he was in trouble with the law and found himself in the midst of various feuds, Busy’s career went on to flourish to this day.
