Ground breaking roots reggae singer Jah9 has released the official music video for her single ‘Steamers A Bubble.’
‘Steamers a Bubble’ is done on the Apartment riddim, originally recorded in 1982 by the Roots Radics band for producer Franklyn ‘Ben Up’ Irvin (Shambala/Hit Bound Records). In its 2013 incarnation, the riddim has been aptly renamed ‘Inna De Yard’.
The video for this song is a tribute to the grounding spaces of grassroots Jamaica where the griots of reggae brought forth music that has inspired generations the world over.
November 2nd, the official release date for this video, holds greater significance as the 83rd anniversary of the Coronation of His and Her Imperial Majesty as is alluded to in the song, where she says “the King and Queen crown same time.”
This event is noteworthy because it signifies a break in tradition as the first time that an Empress is crowned on the same day as the Emperor, highlighting not just the significance of female balance but also family.
