In an interview earlier this month with Worldareggae, incarcerated reggae vocalist Jah Cure spoke for the first time since his imprisonment in the Netherlands.
The singer appears to be in good health but remorseful for the events that landed him in his current predicament. Contrastingly, he was also upbeat about the February 17th release of his latest album, “Undeniable.”
During the exchange, he was asked, “What do you think of the fact that, in situations like this, there is always only one side of the story being highlighted by the media? The Hype side, I like to call it. I understand you probably won’t be able to speak openly now, but is there something you can say to explain your side of the story?
In response, Cure stated, “My side of the story will be my next album project.” before shifting his focus back to the current album.
Undeniable, now available via all major digital and streaming platforms, features a mixed bag of offerings on topics ranging from love to personal experiences, with titles such as “Beautiful,” “Think About It,” “Trust,” “One More Time,” “Be the One,” among others. Jah Cure describes the album as “120% true to the undeniable lover in me,” and says it represents a different side of him that his fans may not have witnessed before.
Jah Cure has a history of producing gold and platinum hit songs that resonate with audiences, with tracks like “Unconditional Love” (featuring Phyllisia), “That Girl,” “Never Find,” “Longing For,” and “Love Is,”. His previous album, The Cure, received critical acclaim, topping the Billboard Reggae Albums chart in its first week of release and earning a GRAMMY nomination for Best Reggae Album.
Jah Cure is hopeful that Undeniable will follow in its footsteps and earn its own Grammy recognition.
