Following the recent success of his latest single “Ganja Man”, Reggae Savant Buju Banton has announced news of his forthcoming album titled, “Upside Down”.
Buju can also be heard collaborating with R&B artist Dvsn on his newest album, “A Muse In Her Life”.
Banton hopes his 20-track project, will uplift his listeners and bring peace to those struggling during these uncertain times. Talking to Billboard the artist divulged, “So I’m trying to open the masses’ eyes. Wherever will is my offering, coming from a place of peace. No anger, no resent. Just peace. Because we have to be the change we seek.”
Expanding on it’s context, Banton continues “Why did I choose the title Upside Down? Well, if I listen to a song with other brethrens of mine, they will say to me, this song is bad,” He adds, “Most of the things that we talk about, we ascribe a negative connotation to it. Bad becomes good. Right becomes wrong. Innocence becomes guilt. Guilt becomes innocence, true becomes else. Real becomes fake. Up becomes down. And we accept it all.”
