Taj Weekes & Adowa’s Love, Herb & Reg­gae de­buts on Bill­board Reg­gae Chart

The Star (St. Lucia) - - ENTERTAINMENT -

‘Love, Herb & Reg­gae’, the much an­tic­i­pated 5th al­bum from Taj Weekes & Adowa de­buted at #29 on the Bill­board Reg­gae Charts one week af­ter its re­lease. The al­bum, dis­trib­uted by VPAL Mu­sic, has re­ceived crit­i­cal ac­claim, gar­ner­ing praise and re­views from across the globe. Dubbed ‘a cur­rent­day roots reg­gae mas­ter­piece’ by New York Mu­sic Daily, ‘Love, Herb & Reg­gae’ ad­dresses a wide range of is­sues from ac­tivism, gun vi­o­lence, laws re­gard­ing mar­i­juana and hu­man rights.

The first sin­gle, ‘Here I Stand’, is uni­ver­sally con­sid­ered to be an “an­ti­ho­mo­pho­bia an­them”. “Mr. Weekes has taken it upon him­self to ex­tend an olive branch, or cor­rect the ho­mo­pho­bic mis­steps of his col­leagues with ‘Here I Stand’”, states premier reg­gae mu­sic mag­a­zine, Reg­gaeville. The song is ac­com­pa­nied by a lyric video, which will be re­leased in mul­ti­ple lan­guages.

Taj Weekes and Adowa are cur­rently pre­par­ing to launch a world tour in sup­port of the al­bum, lock­ing in dates in the United States, Canada, France and other parts of Europe.
