Release Date: 27 July 2018
2018 marks the 25th anniversary of the iconic compilation series Reggae Gold. Now available for pre-order and out July 27th everywhere, this milestone will be celebrated with a throwback mixtape by the legendary RoryStoneLove featuring classic reggae jams from Reggae Gold albums in the 90’s. 1993 marked the first year in the series and it has since solidified its place of importance in the culture being the premier compilation album for the latest and best in reggae and dancehall each year.
Reggae Gold 2018’s exclusive lead track and instant-grat is “Easy to Love You Remix” by VP Records newly signed artist Culan featuring Konshens. The UK born dancehall artist Culan was discovered off the pace of his hit “Easy to Love You”, originally featured on last year’s Strictly the Best Vol 57. Released on June 1st, the “Easy to Love You Remix” has all the right ingredients to become a notable Summer 2018 jam. Another exclusive includes “Better”, a new flirty, rhythmic single by singer Estelle, following her 2017 Reggae Gold debut with “Love Like Ours” featuring Tarrus Riley.
Another lead track is Jah Cure’s “Risk it All” featuring Phyllisia Ross. Other standouts include Beres Hammond’s new single “I’m Alive”, Romain Virgo’s “Still”, Christopher Martin’s “Come Back” and Jah9’s “Love Has Found I”, all of whom have current or upcoming projects this year on VP Records.
There is no shortage of crowd pleasers and popular hits from the past year on “Reggae Gold 2018”. Hood Celebrity’s massive hit “Walking Trophy” has established itself as a ladies anthem. Amindi K. Fro$t, Tessellated, Valleyz’s “Pine and Ginger” has also made waves on urban radio with its tropical and laidback vibe. Ding Dong’s popular “Genna Bounce” has the energy that fans of his expect and anticipate.
