Maxi Priest guests on Reggae Lover.

 

The superstar talks about his recently released album entitled “It All Comes Back to Love.” The project was executive produced by Shaggy.
We preview the album’s title track “It All Comes Back To Love” and “My Pillow’ which sound classic.
Listen for “It’s a Summertime Vibe” feat. Bounty Killer, and Maxi’s favorite cut, “The Bridge You Burn.”
 
Also, “Cool Nuh” with Shaggy, and “Anything You Want” with Estelle and Anthony Hamilton. Maxi takes us back to his early days in East London lifting speaker boxes. The singer walks us through an evolution forged in London’s sound system scene.
 
He was the first reggae artist to have a No. 1 hit worldwide, including the U.S. Billboard charts. There’s so much to learn from this fun conversation with the living legend, Maxi Priest.

Reggae Lover History part 2 – The Evolution

In the previous Reggae Lover episode, we described the foundation of Highlanda Sound. This show chronicles what happened from our first gig to present.

In the late ’90s, the three young lions that started Highlanda Sound vowed to become one of the most dangerous sound systems that played mostly 45s. We committed to learning and practicing the arts of selecting and juggling in the dancehall arena. We set out to bring a different level of energy to the scene in Atlanta. We prided ourselves on being versatile enough to entertain any type of crowd.
We accomplished all that and more. Listen to the evolution that led to this podcast.
