After putting the fine touches to his new album “Feel Good Reggae” at the Tuff Gong studios, US based Ghanaian based reggae artist John Quansah, aka John Q, is back in the Island shooting videos for three of the songs.
Among the videos he’s currently working on include “Born Alone,” a poignant recreation of man’s journey through earth, and the vagaries of life.
The script to the song was conceived in a very contemplative mood, and the video relays that message.
In an interview from Jamaica, John Q, whose album is to be released by VP Records, one of the world’s most respected record labels, was immensely grateful for the opportunity to record in Jamaica, a counter he described as the “Mecca” of reggae music.
“I want to be able to have the most authentic music videos an African can shoot in Jamaica, he said. “I hope the trip will solidify the professional outlook of my album.”
Also, he said the decision to record in the Island is to “honour Jamaica do people can see the bright side of the country. For a country blessed with tourism and sprints prowess, high unemployment and crimes, couple with violence, have docked her image abroad, but John Q intimated, “I want to use my music to shine a positive light” on the country.
He said the trip is part of plans of firming up the loose ends before the album is given out to the public. He’s also been engaging in some radio interviews with some of the country’s biggest networks: Fame FM with DJ Collin Hinds and Milk of the “E Blaze” show.
“Feel Good Reggae” is already making waves on airplays in the US, Ghana, London and Jamaica.
