There is an exciting resurgence of conscious, organic music in Jamaica and industry experts and fans alike agree that Protoje is among those at the forefront of the movement known as the ‘Reggae Revival.’ Leading the militant band – The Indiggnation – the powerful songwriter and philosophical thinker articulates the righteous anger of an emerging generation. Protoje reports for duty,
re-establishing the standard for the decaying art of socially responsible, mentally stimulating lyricism.
Referring to Protoje’s debut album, The Seven Year Itch, David Rodigan declared that he was “particularly impressed with the album,” which he thought was “very refreshing.” Rasta Love featuring Ky-Mani Marley was the first international hit, which has accrued over 10 million Youtube views.
Two years after the proverbial itch was scratched, Protoje unveiled his sophomore album called The 8 Year Affair in February 2013. Within a week of its release, the Billboard-affiliated ‘Next Big Sound’ chart listed Protoje at #4. According to the official website, ‘Next Big Sound’ measures “the fastest accelerating artists across all major social music sites, statistically predicted to achieve future success.”
His new album ANCIENT FUTURE will be released on 10.3.
Here all singles from the album:
