Protoje is regarded as one of reggae music’s most influential artists, boasting over 1.5 Million monthly listeners on Spotify, and often blends hip hop, soul and jazz into his native sounds of reggae and dancehall. His new single “30 Million” speaks to the state of affairs in his homeland of Jamaica.
“I’ve been able to witness the transformation of my country over the last 20 years and wanted to make a statement on the Jamaican situation. This song speaks about what is, what was, and what can be, as it relates to the quality of life that we experience here in Jamaica…” – Protoje
This driving modern roots reggae track is produced by Iotosh, who Protoje previously connected with on ‘Ten Cane Row’ featuring Jorja Smith. The Grammy nominated artist will be on a UK tour in the Winter, has previously been featured in Rolling Stone, THE FADER and Vogue Magazine, and has appeared on the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon and NPR’s Tiny Desk Concert series.
“Protoje … distills various influences into an avant-garde sonic montage that propels his exceptional vocal flow and lyrical complexities to greater heights.” – Rolling Stone
