Tarrus Riley's powerful message in "Healing"

Reggae star Tarrus Riley shares the music video for the title track and lead single from his LP Healing, coming July 10th via Zojak World Wide.

Tarrus Riley, affectionately known to fans as “Singy Singy,” is one of the definitive reggae singers of the 21st century. Born in the Bronx and raised between Jamaica and Miami, the son of late reggae icon Jimmy Riley has been a force on Jamaica’s music scene since the mid 2000s, when he released his debut album, Challenges, and broke big with his first #1 hit, the women’s empowerment anthem “She’s Royal.”

The video, directed by Ruption of RD Studios, presents a stunning survey of Jamaica during the time of Covid-19 — barren, bruised and desolate as it emerges from lockdown to get back to business and begin its healing process. With footage shot across the island during quarantine blended with more recent scenes from the recent Black Lives Matter protests in Jamaica, and around the world, the video features cameos from fellow artists Konshens and Kemar Highcon and Jamaican producers Shane Brown and Kareem ‘Remus’ Burrell.

Healing is Riley’s first album since 2014’s Love Situation, which was produced by Shane Brown and Dean Fraser, reaching #1 on Billboard’s Reggae Chart.

The 12-track LP is the first Jamaican reggae album written and recorded entirely during the time of Covid-19.

«What I had to do to not panic, and keep my sanity, is to express myself. This project is about life itself: A soundtrack for our lives now, and maybe what is to be our lives.»

The Healing album will be available July 10th via Zojak World Wide.
