KEMAR ‘FLAVA’ MCGREGOR RELEASES NEW SINGLE WITH JUNIOR KELLY
Reggae legend Junior Kelly released a new single, titled “Magic,” Tuesday, January 29, 2013 on iTunes.
Kelly’s new song is a sunny, lunch-date romance anthem with a hypnotic bass groove, which was produced by Kemar ‘Flava’ McGregor in conjunction with his recently released “80s Rock Riddim” album.
Junior’s new song expresses the magical pleasures of attraction – even if the attraction is only a whimsical dream in the mind of an ardent admirer with a faraway crush. McGregor produced the song to express his overall desire to make reggae music more popular and uplifting, similar to the vibes of American dance, pop and country music styles.
“This idea actually came about as I was listening to the riddim and reminiscing about a girl from a community that I frequent. Whenever I see her, she is always smiling, and her smile captures your soul,” said Junior Kelly. “She could get anything she wants from you with that beautiful smile. The amazing thing is, I have never even spoken to her before, and the beauty of it is that she does not even know or realize that she inspired this song!”
Like all of the great reggae songwriters, Junior Kelly has a special gift of turning his personal experiences into inspiring and uplifting lyrics. He said his love songs are designed not only to share his personal thoughts with listeners, but also to stimulate and elevate his own mind toward positivity.
“Every love song has an impact on me,” said Junior Kelly. “It actually inspires and gives me hope in terms of what I would love to see and feel happening to me in my personal relationships, and sometimes it is an experience that has already happened to me that I bring out and develop into a song.”
Junior Kelly was born Keith Morgan on September 23, 1970 in St. Thomas, Jamaica. He is a member of the Bobo Shanti branch of the Rastafari movement. Junior Kelly toured Europe last summer, and also performed in the United States, Canada, South America and the British Virgin Islands during 2012.
