Blessed featuring Junior Kelly “Rise Up”
- Words: DJ Chocolate
- Label: Herb&Culture
Blessed recently released his excellent self-titled debut album on Explorer Music, which contained not one but two Juno-award-winning (that’s the Canadian Grammys) singles and acclaimed him as Canadian reggae royalty. “Rise Up” is positive and thundering, lyrically and musically superior to any of the songs on his album, and can be played alongside any of the hottest 45s from yard and might well garner this conscious revolutionary his third Juno.
