This month we highlight none other than Sizzla who recently released his new track ‘Green Concrete’. Miguel Orlando Collins (born 17 April 1976), known by his stage name Sizzla Kalonji or Sizzla is one of the most commercially and critically successful contemporary reggae artists and is noted for his high number of releases including ‘Dry Cry’, ‘Thank You Mama’, ‘Rise To The Occasion’ and ‘Take Myself Away’.
On his new release Green Concrete, Sizzla sings about putting a stop to poverty and urges folks to uplift their souls. Riding on the Seltza Music-produced riddim, the Green Concrete riddim, he sings “Flowers blooming on the green concrete. “The flowers are the people why can’t they see” he sings. The video boasts of a look into everyday life, the sceneries of livelihoods, and the realities for a large portion Jamaica’s population. “While we lose our focus, our children going astray” this line floats about the one-drop rhythm.
You can catch Sizzla in his latest release where he brings to light the way feels about the state of things in his home island of Jamaica. For approximately four minutes you can get a direct grasp of how he feels about the people via his lyrics and the accompanying video. Catch the rest of our new reggae selections below.
