Son of reggae legend Sugar Minott drops new EP
Reggae singer Daniel Minott, son of the late reggae legend Sugar Minott, is confident that reggae lovers will enjoy his new Citizen of Love EP, which was released in December last year.
“The Citizen of Love consists of seven tracks which feature spiritual messages through songs produced by for own label, My Block Records,” Daniel Minott said.
The work includes high-powered collaborative singles like the title track Citizen of Love featuring Luciano, and Human Race featuring Natural Black.
Other standout songs include Zion Praise, Jah ah See Yu featuring Psalms, and Slow Rocking featuring Tampanae.
“The track, Give You My Love, is ‘livicated’ to the God woman dem. The first track, Jah Is Real, is to reiterate that there is a master maker and supreme designer to the universe and life as we know it, and that is the spiritual overtone of the EP,” he said.
A video for the title track, Citizen of Love, has already been released.
“The video is streaming well, getting spins on HYPE and RE TV and the track is getting rotation on several local radio stations; it’s a great look,” Daniel Minott shared.
Born in Kingston, Daniel “Blae” Minott had an early interest in music and began expressing his love for the art at an early age when his father tried to form a group with his siblings in 1986 who attempted to record their first single entitled Reggae the beat. The song, however, was never released and the group disbanded.
Daniel Minott never lost his love for the music and later became one of the in-house studio engineers at the age of 15, working alongside Carlo Gray at Youthman Promotion recording studio.
In 1999 Daniel Minott decided to start recording once again, putting his songwriting skills to work. He recorded his first official song, Can’t Take It No More with his label mate Tampanae at Youth Promotion studio, and the song was added to local radio playlists.
He has continued to record music on his own independent My Block Records label.
“It’s all about the message in the music,” he said.
