Sometimes you just need a little pick me up to start your day. That’s where Fast Five comes in. Compromised of bite sized playlists, posted often, “the five” gives you a taste of the best in music right now, featuring tracks from many genres. This week’s reggae edition arrives just in time for 4/20!
Broken Wings – Jesse Royal
With its upbeat calypso style, one wouldn’t associate this track with heartache but it’s worth a listen when reflecting on lost love after the crash from the high.
You + Me – Through The Roots
This sweet upbeat track is a great song to dedicate to that one person who you simply can’t let go of. “You + Me” is a reminder that love is worth fighting for and it’s OK to listen to your heart’s call.
Weed Man – Kash’d Out, Edley Shine
As the herb becomes more widely accepted, this song is a reminder to always thank your go-to person.
Pepper, Stick Figure – Warning
Veteran reggae-rock band, Pepper kicked off their tour performing this track live and it’s finally had a much deserved studio-release. Featuring Stick Figure, this single is a perfect addition to your 4/20 party playlist!
World on Fire (Remix) – Stick Figure, Slightly Stoopid, Tribal Seeds, The Green, Common Kings, The Movement
This remix of the California based band’s hit about making a difference in this world by challenging a culture of self-gratification features an all-star lineup which you can catch on their much anticipated 4/20 headline at Red Rocks! I personally found the original version to be great on its own, but veteran band Slightly Stoopid along with The Green, Common Kings and The Movement, truly set this song on fire!
