Pressure set to drop new album "Rebel With a Cause" November 8, 2019
Reggae artiste Pressure Buss Pipe is set to release his new album, Rebel With a Cause on November 8.
“This album is roots-rock-reggae, with contemporary tracks that are more inspirational and different from the music that I have been doing recently. This is more authentic world music and I am proud of the entire album; I wrote all the songs myself. My favourite song so far is Wake up, Stay Up,” he said.
“This album addresses the situation of injustice in the world, especially for black people, the way the system brainwashes black people and creates a mindset that affects the happiness and the future of the people.
Black people face the same issues in Central America, South America — the Caribbean and North America, it is a shared experience based on economic oppression and racial injustice.
Once we have a full understanding of the problems, we can know what's wrong and then show the world why we have reasons to rebel...that's the reason for the album, to speak the truth and inspire others to open their minds and not be blind to the system,” Pressure Buss Pipe added.
This album, which will be released on digital download platforms by Zojak Worldwide, tackles socio-political issues such as government corruption, institutional racism, injustice and economic oppression.
One of the singles that will be powering the album is Streets Calling Me featuring R City.
R City (short
for Rock City) is an American musical duo formed in 2003, from Saint Thomas, US Virgin Islands. The duo consists of brothers Theron “Uptown AP” Thomas and Timothy “AI” Thomas. They are best known for the single Locked Away, featuring Adam Levine.
“Rock City are my childhood friends, no matter what success they have or I have. Since high school we talk every week; they are like my blood family. We grew up in adjoining communities, we went to the same school — Charlotte Amelie High school — so we have known each other for over 20 plus years,” the artist said.
Pressure Buss Pipe has recorded the single, Slow Motion with Rock City last year.
“We got great numbers on that song last year, so we are expecting some big numbers on Streets Calling Me as well. We're doing tours in 2020, we will be visiting North America, Europe and Africa, anywhere people ah shout for Pressure Buss Pipe,” he said.
Other singles on the album include the title track, Rebel With a Cause featuring Redman.
The artiste whose real name is Delyno Brown, released his last album, Red Rose, in November 2016 which peaked at number eight on the Billboard Reggae album chart.
This was the second entry on the chart by the US Virgin Islands native. In 2007, Pressure Buss Pipe scored a massive reggae hit worldwide with the single Love and Affection.
