The incomparable Mr. Easy has delivered decades of genre defining Reggae and Dancehall hits! Much to his credit, the iconic artist continues his legacy of music greatness on his newly released album “Legendary.” Nearly two years of planning was poured into the stellar project, which is set to wow listeners for years to come.

The 9-track “Legendary” album, distributed by Sony Orchid (Acid Reignz/CTG), offers an unchartered Reggae music experience, which is seamlessly infused with hints of Dancehall & R&B. Described by Mr. Easy as “satisfying, timeless, uplifting and emotional,” “Legendary” is a full vibe!

“Trust me, there is no short changing fans on this project as far as vocal delivery, message in the music and style,” declares Mr. Easy sincerely. “People are going to get their money’s worth and enjoy this album from start to finish.”

The explosive “Always Be There” — the current single from “Legendary” — is both a fan favorite and top selection of Mr. Easy himself. The singer hails the One Drop styled song “personal,” as he penned it for his daughter. Produced by his longtime mentor Beres Hammond, “Always Be There” is one of many songs culminated from their 25 year relationship.

In fact, it was Beres Hammond who encouraged Mr. Easy to return to Kingston, Jamaica in the mid-90’s to focus on singing. Mr. Easy’s tenure at Harmony House studios yielded infinite music opportunities and classic records with top producers like Dave Kelly, Danny Browne and more!

In addition to Reggae music legend Beres Hammond, notably, Mr. Easy boasts quite the amazing ensemble of producers on “Legendary” including: Dilly (Stingray) from the UK (“Times Like These”); Sprocket from Earth Ruler (“Kingston Town”); T Lab (“Guarantee”); DJ Jason (“No Chances”) and DJ Treasure (“Ghetto Motivation”).

“Guarantee,” the relatable first single from “Legendary” has resonated with worldwide listening audiences and even spawned a fiery Lord Kimo dance remix. The gravity of “Guarantee” unquestionably serves as a driving force for the buzz of “Legendary.”

Robust with a diverse music line up, there’s space on “Legendary” for each song to shine. In addition to “Always Be There” and “Guarantee,” other stand out tracks include the nostalgic “Kingston Town” (with an intro from Shinehead), powerful “Times Like These,” and the inspirational “Conquer The World.”

Overall, “Legendary” is a solid album, which boasts timeless music. Mr. Easy’s strong work ethic and unyielding contributions to the genre come full circle on “Legendary,” an album he bills as special because of his complete creative and musical control of the entire project.

Although this is Mr. Easy’s third studio album, the “Legendary” artist has amassed an impressive list of hits like “Bashment Gal” and “Funny Man” (Joyride), “Murder” (Bruk Out) and the ubiquitous “Drives Me Crazy,” among others.

The sound of Reggae is widely recognised because of its acoustically formed bass and drum downbeat, and its offbeat rhythm section. With such a diversity in style it is also considered complex enough to attract progressively minded musicians. A music that has a strong association with dance covering a variety of styles while also offering a background beat for those sharing Biblical chants of Zion. It is hard to ignore Reggae’s influence and how it interacts with our day-to-day lives. Shared as background music for films and advertising driving its heavy bass lines literally felt wherever rock and pop are played. Reggae has an affinity with mainstream British pop; recognised within the hip-hop culture and considered “cool” by those with no connection to Jamaica. As lovers of reggae my aim is to build a community of reggae followers that can share thoughts, news, events as listeners, artists, DJ’s and hosts.
