THE TENNORS release Jamaica 50 single

Recently reunited rocksteady band THE TENNORS have released their new single “Jamaica 50” just months before Jamaica celebrates 50 years of independence.

Here it is:

Founding member George Murphy, also known as Clive Tennors, said: “Music can take a long time to circle the globe. We wanted to make sure that Jamaica 50 wouldn’t be a song that is played for a week at independence, but that it instead got a chance to seep into the hearts and minds of the people”

The vocal trio, which is best known for hits “Pressure and Slide”, “Cleopatra” and “Ride Yuh Donkey”, recently reunited after a 35 year hiatus.

In addition to Murphy, the group includes original member Ronnie Davis (who was also a member of THE ITALS) and new member Henry “Sadiki” Buckley, Jr.

The single made its worldwide debut on Jamaican radio personality Richard “Richie B” Burgess’ programme on Hot 102 FM on Tuesday.
