Roots -reggae singer Andi-Ites is hoping to spread words of encouragement through his latest single Master Your Time .

“It's a little bit more uptempo with positive messages stating that you should never give up in life, no matter what obstacles tend to block your path. You are the master of your time and destiny,” he told the Jamaica Observer.

Master Your Time was released on February 15. It is co-produced on Kush Tent Records and Ites of Life Music imprints.

He is also pleased with the response to Nothing But Love, which debuted on February 1 on the Badartmuzic label.

“It's getting massive strength and support from reggae lovers,” he said.

The 35-year-old said other projects are in the pipeline.

“There's an album dropping late summer, it's called The People's Choice. I will be touring Europe this June with Lutan Fyah on the This is Reggae tour,” he said.

Born in May Pen, Clarendon, Andi-Ites (given name Floyd Forrester) migrated to the Sunshine State in 1995. He said that a career in music was inevitable as he would often sing on his father's sound system.

In 1999, the reggae singer got his break. He sang the hook on rapper Noyd-B's Keep It Jumping.

Among his efforts is a six-track EP, Self Preservation (2015).
