Jamaica’s ‘Modern Day Judas’ Jesse Royal Releases New Album
Reggae gem Jesse Royal, the man known as the ‘Modern Day Judas,’ recently offered a select few a first taste of his upcoming album “Lilly of the Valley,” and it was met with many praises from his peers in music, among them Craigy T, TOK, ZJ Rush and DJ Sparks.
Of his album, which was produced by Lamar ‘Riff Raff’ Brown, Royal says he drew inspiration from the reggae music giants who came before him.
“The foundation set by the others [international reggae artistes] before us, has pushed us to go beyond mediocrity,” he said. “The favourite track for me and the project is ‘Jah will see us through, because we guh through a whole heap a things through the last year and a half and is a song weh a talk to I pan a different level not as the artiste weh sing it but as a listener.”
