produced by Akeunde Pemberton and Sherlon Jackson of Jahlight Records.
Backed with a smooth but vibrant, the artist puts nice melodies,
energy and lyrics to it with his call for the lovers to keep that
very love that they had from the beginning to the end. It’s
definitely a beautiful song, one that will attract the masses.

Already anticipated by many, the world can catch this new tune
releasing on the airwaves worldwide in the month of May and it will
also be available via digital download soon. It is one of many to
come, so do look out for this artist with his brand new release
touching the heart an soul of all that comes it way. As King Solomon
says, ‘To me singing music is not all about having a sweet voice but
about putting words together that could make see and feel the reality
of the truth concerning whatever you are singing. Music to me is like
a vehicle which takes people where they want to go. I would love to be
the driver taking them to a place of joy, peace, happiness and eternal
life, which is the Kingdom of God. My mission through music is to
reach the heart and mind of the people so they could know that God
exist and is very much alive.

I am here to proclaim and help
establish my Father’s Kingdom on Earth as it is in Heaven’.
From King Solomon was conscious of himself he loved singing and
dancing but it was at age 17 that he got his call into the rastaman
vibration and his style of singing changed to a more r n b, reggae
blend. He recalls being brilliant in school and could have been many
things but he left everything and chose to pursue music, the rasta
way. Two of his greatest musical inspirations are the late great Bob
Marley and Dennis Brown as they gave him that strength and
encouragement to sing. As such King Solomon started singing with his
own sound system, Sonic 1 Possy, along with other sound systems at
Block Parties in America where he lived for 19 years. At that point
in his career he sang in big shows in Queens New York, Atlanta Georgia
and he even came first in a singing competition in Jamaica. In 1995,
King Solomon met up with Bobby Konders of Massive B and did a track
called, ‘Dream of Me,’ on the classical, Stalag Riddim, which was in
rotation on radio station, Hot 97 NY.

Back in Trinidad, where he did most of his outstanding shows, he use
to sing every Sunday in Club Monty’s with a group called Black
Survivor. After a split he then formed his own group called Universal
Love which symbolized the Body of Christ, which was home also to
female reggae star, Queen Omega.

King Solomon is a very loving and caring individual as said by many.
He is always there to give advice and would sacrifice his time to lend
a helping hand. He is said by his management team to be, ‘a very
positive and conscious minded individual, a man of wisdom and a unique
understanding of things, a true messenger’. May the world realize the
bountiful blessings we have been given in its different forms.
‘I want to be just like my Father in Heaven. I know God is going to
use me in these last days where a worldly system rules. However,
there is no other way but the way our Lord Jesus Christ came and
showed us. There is no other God than our Lord and Saviour Jesus
Christ and that is love. Any other way is temporary and will fade away
with time. Love which is God is forever’. Listen to track here
