Protoje is occasionally called the leader of the reggae revival, and with reason. Monsterhit Who Knows is sung along by all. We also know him from Rasta Love with Ky-Mani Marley (2011), and Kingston Be Wise, heard on the Grand Theft Auto soundtrack. He doesn't avoid political and activist themes with his conscious lyrics, like in singles Blood Money and Truth & Rights (2017). In February he showed his romantic side with the sensual Bout Noon, a taster of his new album. His iconic look (beard and glasses) makes him stand out, as does his distinguishable sound: laid back, with hip hop and rock influences, with flashbacks to classic ska and reggae. We cannot get enough of Protoje and his Indiggnation Band: this is reggae as it was meant to be.
