“With so many bad influences around, I always try to do positive music to uplift people. As a father and an entertainer, it is very important to portray positive messages for the next generation. Currently, I’m very pleased with the feedback the song has been receiving both locally and overseas. Also, look out for my new album coming soon,” he said.
Junior Reid is expected to make stops in California and other states as part of his current North American stint. Upon his return to Jamaica, Reid will continue work on his upcoming album while promoting the new music video “Out Deh.”
