Cookie Crumble is the latest song from singer Alpha Rowen. It addresses struggles some persons face while avoiding a life of lawlessness.

Produced by Early Sterling for SMP Records, Cookie Crumble was released last November and is available on all digital platforms through J Wonder.

“You have persons whose faith is being tested and they try their very best not to get drawn into a life of lawlessness and barbarism,” said Alpha Rowen.

A former dancer with deejay Charlie Chaplin, Owen Rowe (his real name) is from Jones Town, Kingston. He made his recording debut in 1997 as Rolex with Tell Me Teacher for the Inity Lion label. Songs such as the ska-inspired Chaka Chaka, What Can I Do Lord, Africa's Calling and Murder, opened doors for him locally and overseas.

“My musical journey has been challenging, interesting and at times hard. But it has only served to solidify my confidence that I am not just the normal talent that just goes where the flow leads, but use the experience to appreciate my talent and perfect my artistic craft,” Rowen explained.

A video for Cookie Crumble will be released next week.
