A recent trip to his homeland drove California-based reggae singer Eljai to write and record the patriotic Sweet Belize.

The song is co-produced by Dean Fraser and Bowie Carroll.

"Going back home to Belize after not visiting for a long time, it was like I fell in love with Belize all over again," said Eljai. "The vibes and the ambience were surreal; visiting the cayes and some ancient Mayan sites where I used to play as a child. I decided to put my feelings in lyrics as a love letter to my country."

Sweet Belize is released by Jahmix Entertainment and distributed by Zojak Worldwide.

To help push Sweet Belize, Eljai is preparing to shoot a music video.

"We plan on doing the video in Belize and we have several companies that we are in dialogue with. The one that comes with the strongest script will be the one that we choose to work with," he said.

Eljai is also working on The Other Side of Eljai, an album due for release in late August.
