The original track featured production by the legendary Kardinal Offishall, John Fellner, and Ryan Bakalarczyk. Linking up with Tarrus according to Emanuel “felt like the stars were aligning“. “I know Tarrus Riley from going to the parties of my Jamaican friends where they play music that’s big and nostalgic for them. His song ‘She’s Royal’ is just huge, people are still bumping it in 2020! I think people really appreciate the legacy of that song and the link up is really big for what ‘Black Woman’ means and what I want the legacy of ‘Black Woman’ to be. To have him on it, it felt like the stars were aligning. I think the impact that this will have to the diaspora is amazing.” shared the Vocalist. “Black Woman (Remix)” is featured on his “Alt Therapy Session 2: Transformation” EP which now available!

We Look Back At Songs That Sampled @TootsMaytals In Our Latest Playlist!


On September 11, 2020, the world lost a legend named Toots Hibbert. A pioneer in Jamaican music, he has been heralded near and far as the inventor of Reggae. His contributions to music are vast, and he and The Maytals have inspired generations. Up until news of his failing health, he was working on music and performing. Yesterday we paid tribute to him by highlighting the song that gave Reggae its name. Today, we highlight some of the songs that sampled and covered Toots & The Maytals through our latest Playlist.

From Foxy Brown, to Vanilla Ice, to Tone-Loc, to Lucky Dube, to Romain Virgo, you can relive the moments you’ve heard the classic singles, and learn about the music that paid homage to the classics. Frederick Nathaniel Hibbert paved the way for many, and we respect and honour him over here. Thank you for your life, your music, and your energy Toots Hibbert. Walk good!
