Buju Banton and his sons, Markus Myrie, and Jahazeil Myrie, team up on new single called “False Pretense” aimed at tackling social issues in Jamaica’s political atmosphere.
The song is produced by Markus Myrie under his label “Markus Records”. It is the first single from Buju Banton following his release and the first single from Markus debut album slated to be released in the spring/summer 2019.
Producer Markus Myrie explains the inspiration of the song:
This song came about from a conversation, it created a vibe and the vibe created the music. False Pretense is about an ongoing “norm” for Jamaica’s political atmosphere that has over the years continued to spill over on the citizens of the country. The message that should be received is that as a country we need governance that the average person living here can feel. As a people we have been silent about a lot of mismanagement. It’s time we rid the “7 day talks” and start taking action as a people. They say we have democracy, but what we feel is dictatorship. Every party prioritizes their own benefits and not the people’s needs. In my opinion this song serves as a wake up call.
