NEW MUSIC REVIEW: Must-hear new tracks from Queen Ifrica, I-Octane, Kiprich, Gramps Morgan and a hot new talent

Gramps Morgan
“People Like You”
Full of soul power and stirring gospel-esque melodies, this heartfelt and captivating song from the Morgan Heritage bandmate, proves that if he should ever consider a full-fledged solo career, Gramps could easily amass a huge fanbase. A

Queen Ifrica
“I Can’t Breathe”
The reggae songstress has always treated fans to tunes that both delight and provoke thought, and this conscious, nicely crafted number – timely given the George Floyd moment and the #BlackLivesMatter movement – connects on many levels. A-

TALLAWAH One-to-Watch Artiste
Reminiscent of a young Tanya Stephens, this hot newcomer scores a runaway hit (exploring oppression and perseverance), thanks to compelling lyrics, confident delivery and earnest, pleading vocals that make you stop and take notice. B+

“Dancehall Gyallist”
After a lengthy self-imposed hiatus, the dancehall disciple has bounced back in impressive form (lyrically and physically), dropping this brash, pop-your-collar tune that should find favour with both male and female listeners. B

“Nah Switch”
From the man who brought us wised-up hits like “Study Your Friend Dem” comes this resolute, anthemic track (about friendship and family and the test of loyalty bonds) that should do well on summer radio. B
