He announced it a few weeks ago, but today is the day Protoje hits the virtual streets with the release of his 5th album, “In Search Of Lost Time“. A follow up to his 2018 Grammy nominated “A Matter Of Time” album, he looks to further expand his movement, and still bring a few new changes to the game. His first release since his partnership with RCA Records and Six Course Music, Protoje shows us that despite a few new changes, his formula is still timeless. With a lineup that includes Popcaan, Koffee, Lila Ike, and Wiz Khalifa, expect nothing but great offerings throughout. Backed by production from iotosh, Winta James, Supa Dups, Di Genius, Ziah, Natural High Music, and The Grei Show, you’ll be swayed by the Riddims as well. Will this be the album that not only gets the Grammy nom, but take home that golden award? Let’s see what happens in 2021 as iotosh and The Grei Show are two producers we’d love to see be a part of a “Grammy Family“.
This one goes out to all the special ladies out there. May you be like a favourite painting that can’t be parted with for anything in the world! With his 5th album on the way, Protoje starts things off with the first single, “Same So“.
Assisting Ziah on the track’s beautiful production, Protoje flexes some vocal chops that may be a surprise to many out there. When there’s that one person who takes over your every being, one who makes you want to do any and everything with them, one you just want all for yourself, you can very much relate to Protoje’s track here. It’s a beautiful thing when you have deep feelings for someone, and it’s mutually shared. Released through In.Digg.Nation/Six Course Music/RCA, expect nuff more niceness during New Abum SZN.
Accompanying the single is clean artwork by Yannick Reid, and a music video directed by JRDNMARS that can easily be your favourite video of the year, or at least top 2. Featuring dope fashion, a vast array of colourful scenes, the beautiful Celine Deidrick, and a lot of unmatched vibes, the music video will put a spark in your everything, and have you wishing you were there taking photos, putting together styles for the subjects, or just witnessing it all come together!
For years there have been talks about making venues for fresh young talent to showcase their works in Jamaica. While some have popped up over time, one that is here to stay is held at the Stones Throw Bar every monday by the name of “New Wave”! Located at 1b Mannings Hill Rd. in Kingston, patrons witness displays of Art from some rising stars from 8PM to 12AM. Since its inception in late 2016, it has quickly become the talk of the town, or rather the Island. For those who don’t know, we recently interviewed a couple members behind the “New Wave” team, Lindsey Lodenquai (Head Coordinator), and Davida-Mae Chambers (Social Media Manager/Coordinator). Open your mind for a “New Wave”!
