PREMIERE: Queen Ifrica “Cease All War” Official Music Video

PREMIERE: Queen Ifrica "Cease All War" Official Music Video

I Guess I’m Not The Only Who Would Like To See…

When Troyton Music released the Queen Ifrica song “Cease All War” this past January, it was clear—even amidst the deluge of new releases that flood our inboxes each day—that this one was special. The producer who made his name with Sean Paul’s worldwide smash “Gimme The Light” had shifted into a whole different vibe with a strong sense of purpose. The warm & easy riddim track was reminiscent of Luciano’s classic “Hands & Heart & Harmony” and with an artist like Queen Ifrica on the mic, it was no surprise that she came with that lyrical fire.  “Why are we fighting and killing each other off all of the time?” Queen asked passionately, even as her hometown of Montego Bay was locked down by a military curfew in response to an upsurge of crime and violence. The song struck a chord with listeners in Jamaica and beyond. Today we proudly premiere the visuals, helping to spread an important message to the world. Video After The Jump… Read more »
