Buju Banton releases long-awaited album Upside Down 2020

28 Jun 2020

Grammy winner, multiple Billboard Hot 100 chart-topping artist and international reggae icon Buju Banton releases his much-anticipated album Upside Down 2020, his first full-length studio album in a decade. The 20 song album also features special guests Stephen Marley, Pharrell, John Legend and Stefflon Don and is now available HERE. Banton's last album, Before The Dawn, was released in 2010. Leading up to this release, a wide cross section of music critics were excited and eager with anticipation: 

 "One of Jamaica's biggest contemporary stars." - Rolling Stone

"One of the most respected acts in reggae." - The Associated Press 

"A national hero...he's as much a singer as he is a hallmark of Jamaican culture." - The FADER

"The sounds on this versatile set range from state-of-the-art dancehall to classic roots reggae to R&B and pop-flavored collaborations" - Vibe Magazine (current cover story)

The quintessential artist Buju Banton celebrated his return to the worldwide stage following his performance at Kingston's famed National Stadium. The Long Walk to Freedom Concert was one of the biggest music events in Jamaica's history and was the launching pad for the tour of the same name. His subsequent announcement that he had signed with Roc Nation was followed with Banton releasing four brand new songs with accompanying music or lyric videos; "Steppa", "Trust", "Memories" featuring the incomparable John Legend and "Blessed", energizing his massive and growing global audience. While "Blessed" is now exploding on the charts, "Memories" is a Top 20 record at radio and is currently charting at number one on the iTunes reggae chart.
