Los Angeles was the home for the annual Akademia Music Award again, where Afro-Fusion and R&B artist Squeeze Tarela was donned the title ‘Best Reggae Artiste of the Year”. The accolade is well-deserved as Tarela’s innovative dancehall fusion and contagious vibe can be heard in great detail with his latest releases. His single “Cocoa Butter” was released on May 18th and is the perfect companion to a summer love.
The underlying beat is an energetic reggae feel with the lyrics accentuating the loving nature of the song. This release follows Squeeze Tarela’s earlier releases like “Hottest Thing” and “Better”, each song gaining the artist Spotify and Youtube streams in the hundreds of thousands. The “Record Killa” as his fans have dubbed him, takes his influences from around the world creating his own unique sound.
Cocoa Butter is yet another piece of quality work from this artist. A captivating visual mirrors the gloss and good vibe of the record. Influences from across the continents are captured in the sounds and vision that are put together in the perfect summer package.
