Now that’s what I call reggae music. Since 1993, New York based label VP Records has released an annual compilation of the year’s top reggae, dancehall, and roots songs called Reggae Gold.
Their 22nd compilation album, Reggae Gold 2015, features an eclectic mix of artists and musical styles that will appeal to reggae fans of all ages and preferences.
Reggae Gold 2015 features everyone from Magic, the year’s biggest pop-reggae band, Beres Hammond, a mainstay in most of Reggae Gold’s releases, and even Actor/Comedian turned singer Eddie Murphy, whose released a string of reggae singles over the past several years.
Another great addition to the compilation is actually the last song on the album with Inner Circle revisiting “Tenement Yard” featuring the legendary Jacob Miller with Jamaica’s top rising reggae artist, Chronixx. You can read more about that song, it’s collaboration and music video by clicking HERE!
We’re also glad to see that the album is far from being male-dominated, as it features songs from Etana, Toian, Ikaya, Queen Ifrica, and more. Compared to the 2014 release, Reggae Gold 2015 seems to have a wider variety of artists, and even one of the longer track lists in the compilation album’s history.
The album will be available on CD, vinyl, and digital download on July 17th. You can pre-order the album on Amazon by clicking HERE!
