Canada-based reggae and dancehall songbird Phenique hopes that her new anti-violence single, Another Coffin, will inspire peace and love.

The sexy vocalist has been perturbed by the numerous grisly reports of violence and murder which often dominate the headlines in Jamaica.

“I love watching the news, whether it is news from Canada, Jamaica, or the US, but lately, the news from Jamaica has been so brutal and shocking … sometimes I am scared for my Jamaican people,” said the artiste. “I am tired of the daily reports of senseless violence, and the negativity. That’s why with Another Coffin, I put myself in my people’s shoes. I can’t imagine the pain of someone who has lost their mother, father or child, but I wrote this song so people could relate because everyone has suffered loss.” The song was released on March 3.

“The feedback has been great so far, people are touched by the song. But what I really want is to change the hearts of the gunmen because COVID-19 is wiping out so many people. I thought because of the pandemic people would appreciate life more. But that is not happening in Jamaica,” she mused.

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.
