Shuga Releases Black History Month Tribute – Ebony (The Freedom Song)


After her debut on Digicel’s Rising Stars in 2009, Penthouse Music Group’s promising young artiste Shuga has captured the ears and hearts of fans across the nation with several well- produced singles (“Tell Me a Lie” “Give my soul to Jah” and “Bun dem down”) before taking the stage on Rebel Salute’s Night 2 January 18, 2014 to deliver a powerful performance.

Last week the artiste paid tribute to Jamaican History with the release of Ebony on Penthouse Music Group’s label.

If construed in the literal meaning of the Title, one can easily decipher the backbone of the song’s meaning. The Single is an ode to the characteristics we possess; the beauty, strong spirit,
loving and nurturing souls, our integrity, our ability to overcome great obstacles, our willingness to stand for what we believe in, and most importantly, our determination to succeed and reach our full potential.

“Its amazing how we’ve really started to strive for our goals and how we maintan the hope of becoming better everyday. And that motivates me to see that we come from a tryng nation, Nah give up mentality, especially when its easy to lose sight of whats important especially with how the world is going.”

A comparatively new artiste to the Jamaican Music Scene, Shuga expounds on her reason for having done this song. “Being black was a big struggle in the generation of our national heroes and since then, we’ve grown to see memorable and notable musicians such Bob Marley who was both talented and an advocate for world peace. To me, this is part of what defines us as Jamaicans. No, we’re not perfect but we strive for goals and we embrace ourselves as black people and I believe we embody the characteristic of the precious material – Ebony”

The Music Video for Ebony is set to be shot and released on the 6th of February at an official video launch. Details to be released at a later date.
