Amid the voracious debate among many musical pundits about whether or not the authentic reggae sound is still popular among and relevant to the youths of today one exceptional young reggae talent has come out shouting to the world that “reggae still rules”. This artiste is The Carey James who is already gaining traction in major local and international music markets particularly in Europe. According to the young singer reggae in its authentic state is still an easier sell than spin off genres such as Trap Dancehall and Afro Beat.
“Reggae in its authentic state is still more easily recognizable and accepted on the international space than the many sub- genres that mostly attract hype than actual streams and or sales in my view. Based on what I have observed the world can’t get enough of real reggae music so I would encourage new acts like myself to stick to the tried, tested and proven sound” stated The Carey James.
The Self Fulfillment singer says he hopes to keep the reggae fire burning like the great Bob Marley while being a positive example to the youths. The University Of The West Indies graduate says he does positive content and lives his life in a clean way because he understands how influential music is and views being an artiste as way more than just singing good music.
“To whom much is given much is expected and as such I plan to continue to be a positive youth and artiste because I know the youths of today are listening just like I listened to my elders so from day one I opted to stick to the positive path. My music is medicine for the mind” stated The Carey James.
Currently The Carey James is busy promoting his new singles entitled Self Fulfillment, Prevail and Uptown Tenement Yard which are all enjoying daily mainstream rotation in Jamaica, Europe, USA and Africa.
