Kab­bal­ist hits with ‘Ru­mours’

The Star (Jamaica) - - FRONT PAGE -

The chart-top­ping en­ter­tainer, known for songs such as ‘Cat­walk’ and ‘Down in Ja­maica’, is blow­ing up FM ra­dio with his re­make of Gre­gory Isaacs’ 1988 smash hit ‘Ru­mours’.

Kab­bal­ist is pleased with the suc­cess of the song and he knows that if Gre­gory Isaacs were alive, he would give him a nod of ap­proval for his cover.

“This song was re­leased in May, and since then it has been get­ting a lot of sup­port from reg­gae DJs all over the world. Gre­gory was a very good friend of mine, and I know if he were here to­day to wit­ness what’s hap­pen­ing with this re­make of Ru­mours, he would be very pleased,” said Kab­bal­ist.

Since the re­lease of Ru­mours, Kab­bal­ist has been flooded with re­quests to cover other clas­sic reg­gae songs.

“Be­cause this song is do­ing so well, my fans have been ask­ing me to record more cover songs, but I’ve re­fused to give in to their de­mands be­cause I don’t want to be branded as a cover artiste. I won’t rule out do­ing more cov­ers in the fu­ture, but right now, I’m con­cen­trat­ing on record­ing more orig­i­nal songs,” he said.

Kab­bal­ist plans to shoot a video for Ru­mours be­fore year-end.

Also on the cards for Kab­bal­ist is the re­lease of an EP, ti­tled Ru­mours, which is slated to drop in 2017.
