The Universal Cure Up For Grammy Nomination

Spread the love

Jah Cure’s album The Universal Cure has been submitted for a 2010 Reggae Grammy nomination. The Album is part of a list of reggae albums that will be considered for a 2010 Grammy nomination.The Universal Cure which was released on April 14 this year is Jah Cure’s fifth full-length album.

Released under the Sobe Entertainment/Danger Zone imprint and distributed by Fontana and Universal Music Group, The Universal Cure contains sixteen tracks. It features Mr. Jailer with SoBe Entertainment songstress Phyllisia and Hot Long Time featuring Flo-Rida, Mavado and Jr. Reid. Also on the album are the hits Call on Me, Sticky, Reflections and Green Grass.

The album peaked at number 2 on the Billboard Top Reggae Albums Chart and consolidated Jah Cure’s title an international reggae star. The Universal Cure also silenced the doubters by unleashing several hits that still maintain a presence on the charts both locally and internationally.

Born in Montego Bay, Jamaica, Jah Cure became involved with reggae music as a teenager and rapidly rose to fame in the late ’90s. In 1997 at only 18 years old, Jah Cure released the culturally minded single King in This Jungle with Sizzla.

Over the years Cure recorded and released numerous hit records; the songs Jamaica produced by Danger Zone and Longing For produced by Don Carleon both hit number one on Jamaican and international reggae charts and signalled that Cure’s music has an addictive quality.

Jah Cure’s first album ‘Free Jah’s Cure’ was released in 2001, one year after his incarceration. In 2003, Beres Hammond produced Cure’s second album ‘Ghetto Life’, which featured the single Divide and Rule, another massive collaboration with Sizzla which was eventually voted the best song of that year. Cure recorded more songs while still incarcerated and released his third album in 2005, aptly entitled ‘Freedom Blues’.

After serving his time Cure was freed on July 28, 2007 just a week before the release of his fourth album. Since then Jah Cure’s goal has been to spread love and to promote peace and healing universally through his music.

He has continued to release hits and has completed several oversubscribed tours in the Caribbean and Europe. The artiste is also a local favourite being a constant crowd puller at events such as Reggae Sumfest.
