Reggae legend Buju Banton returns to the airwaves with the single “Madda Badda.” A prelude to the Grammy-winner’s forthcoming album, the J. August-produced track mixes dancehall rhythms and contemporary sounds with the hardcore lyricism that brought him to prominence in the 90s. For Banton, “Madda Badda” is meant to revitalize the traditional dancehall sound Jamacia is known for. This track comes as a respite amid public concerns that the quality of dancehall music has waned. Proving that dancehall songs can be simple, meaningful, and dispelling the idea that artists must compromise one for the other. Banton’s latest release follows his exciting 2021 run, which included the release of three new singles. The forthcoming album marks his first in two years, since his 2020 albums “Steppaz Riddim”, “Upside Down” and the 25th anniversary edition of the 1995 classic “Til Shiloh.” Listen to “Madda Badda” below.
