Dancehall artist Shokryme is gearing up to release his new EP “Change For The Better” later this week, denoting another milestone in his steadily rising career.
The 7-track set will be unveiled this Wednesday, July 26, via the Slang Bang Records imprint, with contributions from various creatives, including New York-based award-winning producer CJ The Chemist, responsible for his 2017 hit “Gold,” featured on the Barcardi Rum and Major Lazer presents Music Liberates international campaign and also Skeng’s monster hit “Gvnman Shift.” among others.
The inspiration behind Shokryme’s latest project, “Change For The Better,” is deeply rooted in personal growth and reflection. In 2020, the artiste faced a significant setback after being convicted on firearm-related charges and subsequently serving a three-year sentence. Amid the challenges of the pandemic and his incarceration, Shokryme used the time to introspect and visualize his musical aspirations. Fueled by a desire to improve his life, he decided to bring his vision to fruition once he was released. This led to the birth of the EP.
The EP features a single collaboration with contemporary Laden on the track “Way Off,” showcasing the dynamic synergy between the two talented artists. The deejay promises fans more diversity, clarity, and self-reflecting messages in this latest body of work, all delivered with his signature lyricism and style. Additionally, fans can expect a delightful twist of pop influence on one of the tracks, adding a unique dimension to the project.
“Change For The Better” will be distributed by OneRPM, ensuring that the project reaches a global audience and cements Shokryme’s place as a rising star in the music industry. With his redemption story woven into the fabric of this EP, he is set to captivate hearts and minds as he showcases his growth as an artist, father and a man. This release marks an exciting new chapter in his journey, leaving fans eagerly anticipating the transformational journey promised.
