It is well known by now that Reggae superstar Jah Cure has been behind bars for the past year. He was found guilty of attempted manslaughter and sentenced to six years in prison. However, Dutch prosecutors appealed against the acquittal of attempted murder following the verdict. In the meantime, the musician remains in custody pending a new trial.
In spite of this, Jah Cure refuses to let his situation slow down his music career, as the singer prepares to release his fourth album from behind bars entitled “Undeniable” via Vp Records on February 17.
A special message from the singer was delivered to fans anxiously awaiting his music in an interview.
“My message to my fans is I apologize for this situation I get myself caught up in. I would like to give this album to you as a special gift from me to you. Until we see each other soon, I will have some interesting songs to share with you,” Jah Cure said in his first interview since being arrested in Amsterdam.
It is not the first time Jah Cure has found himself in legal trouble. On the 26th of April 1999, he was found guilty on two counts of unlawful possession of a firearm, rape, and robbery with aggravation, for which he served eight years of a fifteen-year sentence.
In the best-case scenario, Jah Cure anticipates Undeniable will get a Grammy nomination, just as he did with The Cure, his 2016 hit album which topped the Billboard Reggae Albums chart. According to the singer, choosing a favorite song from the upcoming album is tough, but if he had to select one, it would be “Think About It.”
Jah Cure’s new album “Undeniable” sees him extending his reach across the African continent for a collab with Ghanaian Afropop, Dancehall, and Reggae artiste Stonebwoy. As one of only two collaborative tracks on the album, Undeniable also features talented rising star Kaylan Arnold.
For Jah Cure, it was essential to feature her on this album given that she is a big fan of his. She had also reached out to him back in 2016 for a collaborative project.
