"Who Knows" - Protoje ft. Chronixx

“Who Knows” – Protoje ft. Chronixx

Two of Reggae music’s emergent leaders have gifted their fans what they have been anticipating for the better part of two years. The new record titled “Who Knows” is an indomitable combination of Protoje‘s lyrical prowess and Chronixx’s mesmerizing melodies.

 

“Who Knows” is the first official single from Protoje’s third studio album, scheduled for release in September 2014. The song is an anthem for the free spirited, unrestricted by the opinions of others and the perception of inadequacy.

DJ and selector extraordinaire, David Rodigan, premiered “Who Knows” on BBC’s 1Xtra last month, and the record has been in consistent rotation on international and home-grown radio stations ever since.

 

 

In his verses,Protoje exposes the illusion of poverty, highlighting the irony that hunger plagues the city when, “food deh down a country just a drop off a the tree them.” The chorus, penned by producer Phillip “Winta” James and delivered byChronixx, illuminates the joys of living simply, and the inner peace resulting from surrender to life’s ebb and flow.Sharing insight into their early conversations, which began as far back as 2010,Protoje recalled, “Chronixx and myself, from the first day we met, have talked about doing music together when the time was right. The stars have now aligned.”

Production on “Who Knows” is another testimony to the evolving genius of James, who has been setting a high standard this past year, with projects including the Rootsman and Militancy Riddims. James is also the main producer of Protoje’s third album, which will be released on the newly incorporated Indiggnation Collective label.

“This is my first collaboration with Oje. Winta and Oje are geniuses, and the result brings I and I a great joy,” Chronixx declared. “Music that teaches gratitude and self-sufficiency is especially relevant in these times.”
