Munga creates Conundrum
Munga Honorable

FOR his third full-length studio album Conundrum, Munga Honorable decided to take on a more serious and soulful tone.

Conundrum is due for release on August 19 via Onerpm. It was executive produced by the artiste's Hilltop Records imprint and has 13 tracks.

"Conundrum means difficult situations or unending questions. In the world today, most difficulties or unending questions are caused by people and people's point of views, perspectives, desires and choices. So, the album contains tracks addressing topics and points like these. It therefore also gives different perspectives, sounds and feelings that make up Munga's music," Munga told the Jamaica Observer's Splash.

The album comes two years after the release of Shine Your Light (2020). His previous body of work include 2007's Bad from Mi Born (album), 2015's EP Excuse Me, and 2019's EP Firey.

Among the producers who contributed to Conundrum are Donovan "Don Corleon" Bennett, Luigi Society, Kunley Da Kulprit, 3r40 Records, Diego Don Musiq, Pandemic Records, Shawn Dan Productions, Brilli Productions, Jay Crazie, KnackOutt Productions, and TV Boss Entertainment.

Reggae artiste Fantan Mojah is featured on the track Nobody Don't Know When. Other tracks include Prayer, Heart Clean, Expectation, Feel Good, Bad Gyal, One Custy, Full Moon, and Mi Love Mi Life.

According to Munga Honorable, he has grown musically on Conundrum.

"Yes, I think I have grown musically. How much, I would rather the people listen and determine that and give their point of view and perspective on that," the deejay shared.

He added, "The soulful vibe on the album was inspired by my personal growth. The slower tempo tracks speak more in depth, more feeling music, more feeling lyrics. We have a few uptempo dancehall tracks on it, but for the majority of the tracks, its social commentary, feelings and topics of relevance."

Munga, whose real name is Damion Rhoden, is from Islington, St Mary. He entered the Red Label Wine Superstar Competition in 1997. Four years later, he began touring with dancehall act Capleton.

He was later signed to the Don Corleon label. His hits include Bad from Mi Born, Wine Pon It, Earthquake and Flippin Rhymes.

In 2019, he returned to the charts in a big way when he spent multiple weeks at number one with Mad Ova No Gal. He later followed up with the radio hit Firey.
