AUDIO: Listen to Konshens’ New Album, “It Feel Good”

March 2, 2018

Konshens - It Feel Good

Konshens, the Jamaican deejay behind many of the biggest dancehall hits of the last decade, including โ€œGal a Bubbleโ€ and 2016โ€™s worldwide smash โ€œBruk Off Yuh Backโ€ today brings us his second album, It Feel Good.

The 16-track LP, which features production from dancehall luminaries RVSSIAN, Stephen ‘Di Genius’ McGregor and Don Corleon and a committee of international producers, pairs the โ€œgyal tunesโ€ and bashment anthems Konshens is known for with a more global sound incorporating trap, R&B and other melodic flavors.

It Feel Good lead single โ€œBig Belly,โ€ which premiered yesterday on Billboard.com, is a collaboration with Rick Ross and Konshens’ long-time producer RVSSIAN (Vybz Kartel, Bad Bunny), who makes a rare vocal appearance.

The reggae ballad โ€œReal Real Loveโ€ showcases a more mature, romantic sound for the artist, while โ€œDays of My Lifeโ€ (featuring Satori) addresses the recent death of Konshens’ brother, Delus. The album also includes a remix of 2016โ€™s massive โ€œBruk Of Yuh Backโ€ with Chris Brown and โ€œTurn Me On,โ€ Konshensโ€™ latest dancehall hit.

โ€œBasslineโ€ has the classic dancehall feel of a ’90s Dave Kelly riddim, or one of Konshens’ hard-hitting bashment anthems like โ€œSo Mi Tan.โ€

โ€œReally, I am trying to bring dancehall back to the glory days,โ€ Konshens says. โ€œThe Sean Paul days, the Shaggy days and the Beenie Man days. I am trying to reintroduce dancehall to them from the ground up.โ€œ

It Feel Good is the first release in a new joint venture between Konshensโ€™ Subkonshus label and San Francisco-based Empire Distribution.

It Feel Good is available now on iTunes and all streaming platforms.
