Dancehall artiste Jahmiel is doing his part to try and alleviate some of the stress of the COVID-19 pandemic through his music. The artiste who was recently embroiled in a battle with Chronic Law has seemingly stepped away from that aspect of his career, as he tries to bring some inspiration to the people of Jamaica and by extension the world.
Through a press release, the artiste confirmed that the name of the project is Revamp. The release also shed some insight on the project as it states: “As people around the globe continue to stay home and slow the spread of the coronavirus, artists have been using the time to tap into their creative side. In mid-March, as the music world went into collective retreat, festivals were postponed; stadium tours were scrapped, and major artists shelved their albums, international recording artist Jahmiel did just the opposite.”
The release further states that Jahmiel used the time during the quarantine to put the final touches on his sophomore EP which was produced by his own imprint label Patriotz Muzik, and Akiem Bingham for Quantanium Records.
Revamp will be distributed by Hapilos and features five-tracks which were all written by Jahmiel. It’s expected to be released on May 29th.
The five songs on the EP to be featured are:
Preserve my life
I see an angel
According to Jahmiel, whose real name is Jamiel Foster, each song speaks to the introspection of one self and life experience.
He said: “Over the past few weeks in Quarantine I’ve realized that many of my fans and persons in general are complaining about having to stay inside and the inability to party, go outta road when they want to. But I want people to know to use this time wisely, don’t let this pandemic make you panic. Look within yourself and RESET, REVAMP. Whether it’s your business, your relationship or you as a person, a mother, RESET improve, become a better you. Only how we can do that is to make the conscious effort to GO INSIDE- Internally and make the REVAMP.”
He further states: “With this EP I share some new sides of Jahmiel and some experiences which allowed me to Re-Focus and REVAMP.”
Fans will get a taste of what the new EP has in store when the single “Lights Off” is released in the upcoming week.
