Speaking exclusively with Prism Marketing Consultants, Mrs Jones, chief operator and owner of MBR, disclosed that the song was curated to honour her late husband, whose untimely passing has caused her much anguish in trying to grapple with the unfortunate reality,
“These past five years have been very challenging for me, but nevertheless, I try to remain positive and push through the pain each day.”
Alluding to the sombre ballad, she added, “Tribute to you, my King SIP Corey MBR Forever I Love You like my life sleep well my King until we meet, again.”

According to the Jamaica Constabulary Force’s information arm — Corporate Communications Unit — residents heard explosions at 9:30 am and alerted the police. Jones’s body was found with multiple gunshot wounds. He was pronounced dead.
