7106Last week Buju Banton’s latest album “Rasta Got Soul” has been nominated for a Grammy in the category “Best Reggae Album”.

Over the last ten years, the name Buju Banton has become synonymous with modern reggae. Having metamorphosed from a brash teenage phenomenon into a self assured deejay and singer, Buju’s fusion of traditional roots rock, contemporary r&b and dancehall djing have earned him a prophet like status in his Jamaican homeland.

Undoubtedly, Buju is one of the most popular musicians in Jamaican history, having hit the charts there suddenly in 1992, with a string of hits including “Bogle”, “Love Me Browning” and “Love Black Woman”, all three of which were massive hits in Jamaica and less so abroad. Soon afterwards, Banton released one of the more controversial songs in his musical catalogue – “Boom Boom Bye Bye”.

Buju Banton’s 1995 Grammy-nominated album “Til Shiloh” remains one of the best-selling reggae albums of all time, ranking among Spin magazine’s Top 20 Albums of 1995 and Rolling Stone’s Best Albums Of The Decade. His 2006 Grammy-nominated “Too Bad”, released on his own Gargamel Music label, held court on Billboard’s Top Reggae Albums chart for 37 weeks and was named one of the magazines Top Reggae Albums for 2007.

In the meantime Buju Banton has collaborated with a broad range of artists such as John Legend, Wyclef Jean, Trey Songz, Salif Keita, Busta Rhymes, Fat Joe, and Rancid. H was personally invited by rock legend Dave Stewart to appear in the “American Prayer” music video in support of then Democratic Presidential nominee Barack Obama.

Buju Banton’s latest album “Rasta Got Soul” stands in one line with “Til Shiloh”, “Inna Heights”, and “Friends For Life”. With over 70 minutes playtime the longplayer unites his characteristic vocals and consistently positive messages, with organic rhythms carefully crafted by a select aggregation of Jamaica’s finest musicians, and is mixed by Linford Marshall and Steven Stanley. Two significant combinations, with Third World and Wyclef Jean, are included.
