Lincoln Sugar Minott passed away July 10, 2010, in Saint Andrew Parish, Jamaica. He was just 54-years-old. He was known as a reggae singer and producer who started his musical career in 1969 in Kingston, Jamaica. 7 years after his untimely death and fans are able to continue celebrating his life and music with a brand new song that comes from deep within the archives with the track “My Love Zone.”
For over 40 years, Sugar Minott recorded and released countless records and singles including split albums with Gregory Isaacs and Frankie Paul. His music inspired a whole generation of reggae fans and as recently as this year when Pepper released a new single “Good Thing Going” featuring Slightly Stoopid — The song was taken from Minott’s 1988 tune of the same name and re-imagined in a reggae-rock style.
To sum it up, Sugar Minott redefined dance-hall reggae music and it’s exciting to hear that we get at least one more new song with the release of “My Love Zone,” that comes courtesy of Rebel Sound Records. The song was produced by Minotts longtime friend and collaborator with singer/DJ & producer Triston Palma, being one of the last things Sugar did before passing away. A bass heavy rhythm driven by a melodic and chirping saxophone, this is a lovers jam that takes you out of the friend zone.
