Halonai salutes Jamaica on new track
Reggae recording artiste Halonai shows his Jamaican pride in a newly released track fittingly titled, Yaadman.
"The track is about being a Jamaican man that never forgets his place of birth. It highlights our pizazz, the things that make us so dynamic and full of energy in our ideas and how everybody wants to be a yaadman," he explained. Since its release, he has been receiving positive feedback for the track.
"I have seen growth in my music in terms of reaching wider audiences, especially with my most recent tracks," he said.
Halonai's love for music developed at an early age. He started recording music at age 12 and released his first demo when he left high school. His professional journey began in 2018 and since then, he has released songs such as It's A Happy Day, Behind The Smile and Dem Nuh Know.
"My music has a mixture of old school with new and it's easy to identify and sing along to. It blends perfectly with the songs of today and they can be played for any crowd at any time," he said.
Yaadman will be featured on the artiste's forthcoming EP. The still untitled project is slated to be released later this month. Even with the constraints caused by the ongoing global pandemic, the artiste is still pushing forward.
"I wouldn't say COVID-19 hampered my career, as it gave me more listening ears as an artiste who is using this platform to push positive music. More people have been tuning in as the pandemic has people just needing some good music that speaks about life and can lift their spirits," he said.
