A household name in dancehall, Jamaican artist Charly Black is back in the scene with his 2021 EP So Many Reasons. Releasing with Aftercluv, Universal Music’s Latin America Division, Charly Black gives the fans a mix of both intimate odes like “Treat,” “So Many Reasons” and “Don’t Want to Let Go” and feel- good party tracks like “Diggy Dee” and “Ravin.” With love, happiness, and passion, Charly Black came back strong and put his unique take on the music.
“I’m feeling very happy, very elated in every way. I just want the fans and everybody to just go out and support it in the best way they can,” Charly said.
The six track EP gives us a side to Charly we haven’t seen just yet. His long-standing history of crossing musical borders and showing the natural synergy of Caribbean and Latin American music is as effortless as always. To do this, Charly tapped into talent from both worlds including Spanish DJ and record producer Sak Noel, Columbian actress and singer Greeicy, Grammy-winning artist Sean Paul, and Miami- based multi-platinum hit maker Scott Storch.
When it gets down to it, Charly Black is doing this for the community. A Trelawny native, Charly Black recounts, “Where I come from, there was no celebrity no person of interest, nobody who is successful all over the world. It was hurting me. I want to represent Trelawny and God blessed me in a way where I can do music, and just do my best, it’s the only thing I think I’m really good at.”
And it doesn’t end there. Charly Black has big plans for the future and will be debuting a more “mature” side, as he said, on his summer 2021 album.
