Black Money Single 

The Black Money Exhibit Soundtrack

 

The Black Money Exhibit team is pleased to announce the release of “Black Money,” the first single from the forthcoming Black Money Exhibit Soundtrack. The album’s first track is a Dancehall-Reggae song, which stems from a collaboration between Katawud Music in Atlanta, Roehampton Production in New York City, and Jamaican Dancehall artist J.A. Outlaw.

 

“Black Money” is an upbeat 90s-style Dancehall track with a modern twist that name-drops different currencies previously and currently used in Africa and the African Diaspora. It calls for Black people to invest their money in assets, build wealth, and have more representation on their currencies, the latter issue referring more to the American and European contexts. Like the gold coin that forms the cover art of this single, Outlaw shines on “Black Money,” especially on the bridge, where he emphasizes, “…full time we have we own money…Marcus Garvey fight fi we, you know. Martin Luther King…Malcom X…Black people, a time fi unite. We need we own currency, we need we own land, we need we own place!!!” The artist also implores his audience to “generate nuff wealth and keep it legit,” but he also asks the pressing question, “if Black Lives Matter why we still inna poverty?” A song that speaks to this moment, “Black Money” is out on all major digital music platforms – https://smarturl.it/pb07mi. It’s already creating a major buzz on the national and international music scene.

 

Rounding out the album will be tracks in several other music genres and combination of styles from four continents, including Hip-Hop, R&B, Trap, UK Rap, Reggaeton, Afrobeats, Afro-fusion, Asonto, Soukous, Zouglou, Samba, Calypso/Soca, Salsa, Afro-Peruvian, and Kompa.

 

The Black Money Exhibit Soundtrack is scheduled to be released during Black History Month in February 2021.
