Jah Cure Teams Up with Ras Slick for New Sum­mer Scorcher

The Star (St. Lucia) - - ENTERTAINMENT -

When the likes of two dy­namic Reg­gae vo­cal­ists join forces, the only pos­si­ble re­sult is mu­sic magic. And true to form, the in­cred­i­bly sul­try “Hold on Me” soars be­yond our wildest imag­i­na­tion, po­si­tion­ing it­self to heat up the sum­mer! Bet­ter yet, the love-driven tune will warm our hearts for the rest of the year and be­yond. Re­leased on Tues­day, June 2 on iTunes, it has al­ready gar­nered a huge buzz alone from its early promo and heav­ily cir­cu­lated au­dio snip­pets.

The per­fect har­mony and well-crafted verses would lead you to be­lieve that this is not Ras Slick and Jah Cure’s first duet. But low and be­hold, it’s their very first time record­ing to­gether. How­ever, in the busi­ness of mak­ing mu­sic, mu­si­cal chem­istry is just that, mu­si­cal chem­istry. “Hold on Me” de­clares the grip that their sig­nif­i­cant oth­ers’ love has on their heart, mind and soul.

“I was ex­tremely hum­bled and hon­oured to do a song with in­ter­na­tional record­ing artist Jah Cure . . . I rate his in­cred­i­ble style and mas­sive mu­sic cat­a­logue to the max,” said Ras Slick. “Not ev­ery­one is af­forded such an op­por­tu­nity, so I de­cided to max­i­mize it. One would have never thought that an im­promptu meet­ing in Ja­maica would lead to “Hold on Me” . . . this is a love song, straight from the heart,” the singer added. Ras Slick may be a new­comer to the U.S. (just 4 years), but he is no stranger to Reg­gae mu­sic. Billed as an all-round Reg­gae en­ter­tainer, his love of mu­sic has been vis­i­ble all of his life. In­evitably, land­ing an en­ter­tain­ment man­age­ment po­si­tion with RIU ho­tels in Ja­maica fur­ther honed his mu­sic con­nec­tion.
