Junior Kelly Tough Life
- Words: Cokni O‘Dire
- Label: VP
You want to know how long I been trying to get more music from youth yah? The wait was worth it, as Tough Life is eloquently orchestrated with everything that makes modern reggae audibly digestible. Reminiscent of when singers like Leroy Gibbons and Tony Rebel used to tear down the place, Junior Kelly croons out lover's rock with a unique gravelly tone that is now his signature style. His big tune, "Receive," is just saturated with truth and righteous romance. Still, Kelly nuh just deh pon a pure singie-singie business–his DJing is also hot like flames and fire! As far as I am concerned, Sizzla and Capleton should take a rest, and let the new boss step 'cross.
