There are few things that bring people of all races, all nationalities, all cultures, together. Music is one. Another is marijuana. (Just sayin...it IS!) And so, in honor of 4/20, the international Ganja Holiday, we bring you our favorite MaryJane track...
Yup, it's Come Around from Collie Budz - the New Orleans born, Bermuda raised, white boy Reggae singer. That's right. Colin Harper was born in New Orleans, but moved to his mother's home of Bermuda at the age 0f 5. After growing up on the island with all its musical influences, Collie Budz the Reggae singer was born, and he defied all racial barriers with a slew of big hits. With his debut album in 2007, he became an international star, hitting the top of every chart from Japan to Germany.
And of course, the breakout hit from this album was...Come Around. Source Magazine described the phenomenal hit saying, “This 24 year old shotta has got an anthem spreading across the seas.”
Later that year, Collie Buddz was nominated for "Top International Artist of the Year", by the 4th Annual Excellence in Music and Entertainment (EME), which is an "award to an artist whose solo or collaborative release(s) allowed for greater penetration of the international marketplace". (Wikipedia) That's so GLOBAILE!
And so...no matter your race, your native tongue, your age, or your nation - sit back, put one in the air, and turn this track UP!
