The Star (Jamaica) - - Front Page -

Dance­hall artiste Galaxy P is back with his lyrical guns blaz­ing on the con­scious sin­gle, Soul Fe the Money.

“This song is a com­men­tary on the state of our so­ci­ety. The moral stan­dards have fallen to a low level where we are mov­ing like ro­bots, wor­ship­ping ob­jects on the al­tar of com­mer­cial­ism. This is a call for a re­turn to our hu­man­ity, where we value souls over the Nike shoes on your foot. There is a bat­tle on for the souls of hu­man­ity,” he said, opin­ing that the song is con­nect­ing with the peo­ple.

The video was bankrolled by An­chor Mu­sic Group, the artiste’s new man­age­ment team.

Galaxy P is also gear­ing up to re­lease a quick-fire fol­low-up called Black Na­tion Un­der At­tack, which looks through the lens of black con­scious­ness and na­tion­al­ism at so­cial is­sues such as health, ed­u­ca­tion and em­ploy­ment which con­tinue to af­flict the black race, es­pe­cially in the USA.

“This song makes ref­er­ences to racism in the USA, ‘cause you have po­lice killing blacks, blacks killing blacks, whites killing blacks, plus the neg­a­tive ef­fects of the re­cent pan­demic which dis­pro­por­tion­ately af­fected blacks and Lati­nos. Ev­ery­where we tun, macka jook we as black peo­ple. Just turn on your TV, look what hap­pened to Ge­orge Floyd. The black na­tion is un­der the at­tack,” Galaxy P said.

The artiste, whose given name is Peter Jack­son, will be re­leas­ing a seven-track EP un­der his la­bel, Rat­tler Records, this sum­mer.

Galaxy P has also re­leased the songs Goodie Goodie fea­tur­ing Colin Roache, and It Good fea­tur­ing Ward 21. He re­leased his de­but al­bum Life So Hard in 2007.
