“Affairs Of The Heart“…that’s something the entire universe can relate to. We all love, and no matter how tough people act, we all get mushy on the inside when we think about the object(s) of our affection.
I was deep into whipping up some dinner the other night when Damian “Junior Gong” Marley’s song came on the air. It was first released last Februrary (around Valentine’s Day) but it’s been playing on the radio a lot lately. So if you don’t know the track I’m referring to by now, you can’t call yourself a real music lover—now can you?
It’s not a new release, but trust mi… This track will go down as “timeless.” Watch!
At the very least I’d say this song qualifies for a “love song of the year” award. Yeah man. It’s pure and simple…just like love.
The lyrics are so sweet and real they make you want to fall in love. And if you’re already in love, they make you appreciate your special somebody even more. The man seh, “yuh love is life changing,” and even better “life saving”… Hello!
Ladies, don’t settle for less. This is the type of devotion we need to be hearing. Empress Divine we are.
Reggae and dancehall ah guh through some rough times. Sometimes the lyrics in some of these songs leave much to be desired. If it’s not “Baby baby I love you forever” then it’s “skin out and bruk out.” You know the drill. That’s why I applaud Junior Gong for this track. Yeah man… the tune gone ah lead.
There are many other Reggae artists out there who touch our souls with their music—lions and lionesses who keep the culture strong. I will be bigging them up one by one. Believe that!
However, for today…Damian Marley, ah you have the Boomshot!
