Legendary reggae crooner Freddie McGregor is known for his memorable songs, which have wooed fans for decades.

His hits like the timeless Push Come to Shove, I Was Born a Winner, and Africa Here I Come have become staples within the genre and have won him millions of admirers across the globe.

His latest production, True to My Roots, promises to follow a similar path to the hearts of music lovers. Freddie sings authentic Jamaican lyrics on the Heavenless rhythm, which became popular by way of Dennis Brown's Your Love's Got A Hold On Me and Tristan Palmer's Entertainment.

The track is available on iTunes and is a teaser to a 15-track album to be released in Japan in June, followed by official releases in Europe and North America.


McGregor has had a long and distinguished career in the music industry, and through his Big Ship label, has produced a slew of hits from his offspring, and an ever-growing number of Jamaica's most celebrated entertainers.

By its ability to be consistent with quality musical productions, his Big Ship, created in 1989, has become the most well-known label in Japan, one of the most fertile grounds for reggae music globally.

True to My Roots is the latest in what has become a long list of high-quality productions from the label.
