Queens of the Islands Tour

This summer, starting in June, two of reggae’s modern women artists with Etana and Anuhea will come together for their Queens of the Islands tour.

Video: Morgan Heritage – “Perform And Done”

“Perform And Done” is the leading single off Morgan Hertiage’s new album Strictly Roots that drops on April 20th, 2015. The video was filmed on location at the weekly Mojito Mondays event in Kingston, Jamaica. It was directed by William Richards who managed to capture the essence of the song with a storyline reminiscent of the popular “Dancehall Queen” movie.
“Perform And Done is the music video that pushes the envelope for Morgan Heritage lyrically and visually,” the group states. “The goal is to captivate a whole new audience that would not typically watch a Morgan Heritage video. Our hope is that our existing and new fans appreciate our artistic expression… This song is just an introduction to the creative approach we took with this album. Krystia Rhodes and the entire Image Development Studios team wrote a hell of a treatment to highlight this creativity and the Director William Richards executed their vision perfectly.”
Enjoy the new song and video…
