When the likes of two dynamic Reggae vocalists join forces, the only possible result is music magic. And true to form, the incredibly sultry “Hold on Me” soars beyond our wildest imagination, positioning itself to heat up the summer! Better yet, the love-driven tune will warm our hearts for the rest of the year and beyond. Released on Tuesday, June 2 on iTunes, it has already garnered a huge buzz alone from its early promo and heavily circulated audio snippets.
The perfect harmony and well-crafted verses would lead you to believe that this is not Ras Slick and Jah Cure’s first duet. But low and behold, it’s their very first time recording together. However, in the business of making music, musical chemistry is just that, musical chemistry. “Hold on Me” declares the grip that their significant others’ love has on their heart, mind and soul.
“I was extremely humbled and honoured to do a song with international recording artist Jah Cure . . . I rate his incredible style and massive music catalogue to the max,” said Ras Slick.??“Not everyone is afforded such an opportunity, so I decided to maximize it. One would have never thought that an impromptu meeting in Jamaica would lead to “Hold on Me” . . . this is a love song, straight from the heart,” the singer added. Ras Slick may be a newcomer to the U.S. (just 4 years), but he is no stranger to Reggae music. Billed as an all-round Reggae entertainer, his love of music has been visible all of his life. Inevitably, landing an entertainment management position with RIU hotels in Jamaica further honed his music connection.
