Bugle, one of Jamaica’s most prolific singers and songwriters, is set to release a new song that is sure to spark conversations surrounding the popular “dunce culture” permeating society.
Aptly titled “Fully Bright“, the Rastafarian crooner provides a contrasting perspective to the “fully dunce” mindset, which has become fashionable among the youths. Throughout the song, he gives plausible reasons for an education by asking pertinent questions such as, “How are you gonna lead if you can’t spell leader? At some point, you have to sign your name so at least learn to write.”
“I am not trying to bash the youths, suh I duh want anybody misinterpreting the song. Instead, I’m encouraging them to appreciate the need for a basic education. Not everybody book smart, but even if yuh street smart, yuh still need to possess the ability to read, count and communicate.” – Bugle told Prism Marketing Consultants.
Affirming his point, the “Devalue” hitmaker said, “Corporate a nuh fi everybaddy, suh youth fi hustle and mek the money, don’t it! But if you fully dunce, how you ago count it?”
Produced by Malibu Mean Team Ent (MMTE), the single is expected to be released soon and will be available on all primary digital and streaming platforms. (see audio player below for an exclusive listen)
Meanwhile, Bugle’s Toxicity album (deluxe edition) recently held the No.2 spot in both Bermuda and Canada on the iTunes Reggae Albums chart and No.13 on the Overall Albums chart in Bermuda.
