Jah9’s title single, “Note to Self,” is timely. Given the spread of the infectious COVID-19 virus, and how quickly it has spread worldwide, people need reassurance that all will be fine, and Jah9 delivers.
Teaming with long time collaborator and Reggae star Chronixx, “Note to Self” is the future ‘you,’ speaking to the younger ‘you’ with the message that you can, and should, keep going because no matter what you’re facing today, you will get through it. To make her point, 9 sings: “I’m going to be ok / that is what I tell myself / I’m going to be ok / don’t watch nobody else ….” Visually, 9 marries her thought process with the intent of the song in her music video which debuted today on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CSkfTjZV2SU.
The Reggae songstress made sure that this project represents the best of her, and her wish for all fans to live life with elevated consciousness. This elevation is not just for the mind, but for the body as well, understanding that mind and body make up our existence.
Once again and as with her previous albums, you’ll appreciate the sonic exploration and the approach producers Jeremy Harding, Clive Hunt, Romario ‘Runkus’ Bennett, Iotosh Poyser, Romaine Arnett and Jah9 take to deliver this excellent body of work. Your guaranteed to have a few favorites.
