I listened to this song 1,000 times today.
I first heard about UK reggae songstress Hollie Cook on LargeUp. They posted her cut “Cry,” and I was like, “Whoa, what the fuck is this?” It’s not often that I hear modern-day reggae music that gives me that feeling, but this did.
Anyway, I saw that last week she had a new album out (it’s called Twice), which I had missed when it initially dropped. So I downloaded it on sight, and I’ve been giving it some proper spins for the past few days. Overall, it’s a great album, but the one highlight I HAVE TO SHARE is called “99.” Damn, son. This song is so fire. The beat, the vibe, the melody, the HARMONIES. Super ill. I can’t stop listening to it. I hope you like it as much as I do. Stream above then go get the album. Straight cinematic roots loveliness. Thank you, Hollie.
