An A-list ensemble of Jamaican talent – Sizzla, Chino, Tarrus Riley and Dre Island – join forces for a powerful call of unification on “Every Nation,” presented by beatsmith Kareem Burrell a.k.a. XTM Nation (son of the great reggae producer Philip “Fatis” Burrell of Xterminator Records). Accompanied with a mesmerizing visual (directed by Yannick Reid), “Every Nation” is available today (Feb 22) on all digital platforms via DubShot Records in collaboration with XTM Nation.
Jamaica’s best-of-the-best delivers on every level on this strong posse cut. Dancehall lyricist Chino McGregor, opens with a sharp-witted verse. Tarrus Riley sings and raps in his crushed velvet tone, “You and me are family no walls no boundaries, when we link up Babylon can’t study we.” Then Dre Island advises, “Youths you fi look through your lens and know, the world full of millions of friends and foes.” Each featured artist delivers knowledge and wisdom throughout “Every Nation,” especially from the sample of legendary Sizzla’s “Dem Wonder” ringing on the chorus. Filled with call-to-action drum beats and an electrifying guitar outro, XTM Nation draws from a multitude of today’s sounds on “Every Nation,” including rock, dancehall and hip-hop’s boom bap sound.
