Written by: Adela Scotland

Another month yields a set of fresh new releases from talented artists all across the reggae diaspora. This month’s featured song, ‘Wait for You Love,’ was produced by Will Gittens and Tarrus Riley, two artists with roots across the Caribbean Sea. The slow-paced melody accompanied by laid-back guitar chords sings about being tired of waiting for love. The song resonates with listeners, as many of us know firsthand, the torture of waiting to find our soulmate and the pain and worry that comes with the possibility of never finding them. The chorus elucidates being fed up with waiting for love and the desire to find love immediately.

Will Gittens is a Los Angeles-stationed singer with Trinidadian roots. Gittens is known for his perfect fusion of reggae, pop acoustic, and R&B beats. In fact, his latest release, ‘Wait for Love,’ features a beautiful combination of acoustic and reggae beats. In an interview with the Trinidad and Tobago Newsday, Gittens explained that ‘He was taught early in life by his father to plant seeds and keep it moving. He is now seeing those seeds bear fruit.’

Co-writer of ‘Wait for You,’ Tarrus Riley was born in the Bronx, New York but was raised in Jamaica. In 2004 as a teenager, Riley released his debut album ‘Challengers.’ As the son of Jimmy Riley,a well-known reggae artist it is no surprise that Tarrus embarked upon his own reggae journey. Tarrus has gathered much fame and success throughout his career and is the mastermind and voice behind the sensational reggae hit, ‘She’s Royal.’
