Buju Banton Releases New Music Video For Steppa
Roc Nation announces a partnership to release new music with the legendary reggae artist and cultural icon Buju Banton. Island Records will handle distribution. The quintessential artist celebrates his return to the worldwide stage and the recent announcement by releasing a new visual today for the song “Steppa,” energizing a global audience even more after the song’s previous audio-only release. The video will receive its broadcast premiere on BET Jams as well as on the Times Square Viacom billboard. The “Steppa” visual follows another new track recently released, the Dave Kelly produced, “Trust.” Fans now know for sure that a new album is indeed approaching.
“It’s an honor to work with a legend and trailblazer of Buju’s caliber – His music catalog is simply unparalleled. We’re thrilled to help propel his legacy forward and look forward to amplifying his resurgence on a global level,” says co-presidents at Roc Nation Shari Bryant and Omar Grant
Buju Banton’s music elicits feelings, emotion and inspires change. His recently released “Trust” is true to form and much can be said about the self-produced hard-hitting “Steppa,” music video out today. The new visual follows Buju’s “Long Walk To Freedom” tour. The tour showcased the legendary reggae singer performing his classic hits from “Untold Stories” to “Champion.” When the tour hit Kingston, Jamaica, it welcomed over 30,000 people from all over the world. Prior to Buju Banton, no other Jamaican artist headlined the prestigious National Stadium since Bob Marley performed there at the One Love Peace Concert on April 22, 1978.
Banton’s last studio album, Before the Dawn, was released in 2010. Buju Banton is a Grammy award-winning artist, a multiple Billboard Hot 100 chart-topping singer who is considered a legendary reggae artist all over the world.
