Badmind Prayer: Listen to I-Octane Cover Adele’s “Hello”

November 30, 2015

Words by DJ Arems


Adele’s hit single “Hello” has been topping the charts worldwide and the release of her new album 25 has broken a US sales record, selling more than 3 million copies in just one week. The dark and sauntering original was begging for a reggae refix right away, and while there have already been a few female reggae artists who have covered “Hello” in the lovers rock lane, it now sees another side courtesy of I-Octane.

Rather than another sad love song, Octane takes the silent badman approach calling out all dutty hearts and jealousy in his world, assisted by a spot-on production from Seanizzle. From the first line you hear Octane beckon “Hello…badmind it’s me,” you can expect multiple pull ups and many a future gun shot inna di air.
