Jah9’s new single “Feel Good” is now available for streaming and download everywhere. The song which premiered on YouTube and Soundcloud was released commercially on Friday January 26th. Produced by Clive Hunt, “Feel Good” is a soulful track that introduces a new sound to the reggae roots and dub songstress who is currently working on a full-length album following 2016’s “9”.
The song which states “Things that make your body feel good” in the melodic hook puts an emphasis on the notion of self-love and self-care. “We must examine the things we put into our bodies and minds and ensure that they add value and do not take away our strength and peace,” said Jah9 on the meaning of the lyrics. “In a time when people feel so disempowered by the realities they face and perspectives they hold… I find it medicinal and cathartic to focus inward,” continues Jah9. “Breathe deep. Nourish yourself. Stretch your muscles. Rejuvenate your mind. Stay hydrated… seemingly simple things can make all the difference in the quality of your day to day. The revolution must happen within first.”
Jah9 will be hosting a Yoga on Dub event on Feb. 25th 2018 at Afya Yoga Studio in Kingston, Jamaica. A certified Kemetic Yoga instructor, is an advocate of overall wellness with powerful messages of healthy living throughout her music.
