Halonai is Keeping it Irie with new track
Reggae newcomer Halonai has pulled out all stops to create a hit with his latest track, “Keeping It Irie.” Released in November 2019, the track was produced by Geme Records.
“This is really a conscious song about the celebration of life and giving thanks for a new day. It’s a follow up to a previous track of mine,” the artiste explained. The mentioned track is another one that was produced by Geme Records, titled “Happy Day.”
Since the song’s release, the feedback has been tremendous, with positive responses from as far as the UK and Africa. The accompanying music, which was directed by Ariff Butler of Bloozik Filmworks, has also been gaining traction on YouTube. Telling a compelling story while capturing the essence of Jamaica, the video was shot in scenic locations across the country, including Irish Town in the hills of St. Andrew.
Hailing from Spanish Town, St. Catherine, Halonai has been actively doing music professionally since 2017. The talented musician is also credited as a songwriter and a producer. He may be recognized from the highly popular music competition show, Magnum Kings and Queens of Dancehall, on which he was a contestant in 2013. Over his short but already budding career, he has released other notable singles such as “Bicycle Man” and “Behind The Smile.”
Going forward in 2020, the artiste has great plans for his music and knows that it will not disappoint.
“My music is generally upbeat, I do positive music aimed at bringing about change,” the artiste expressed. Plans are in place for the release of a brand new EP in February 2020; the tracks will be a combination of Reggae mixed with elements of Afrobeat, while keeping the conscious, positive vibe that Halonai has come to be known for.
“Keeping It Irie” is available for purchase and streaming on major digital platforms online.
