IBlack Lion buzzes with 'No Pain'
Boss Dove recording artiste IBlack Lion is getting a buzz stateside with the single No Pain, which features an infectious chorus that deals with the joys of romantic love.
"The song is getting a lot of play across Internet stations in Brooklyn, Bronx, and Queens, as music fans are gravitating towards it because of its universal message of no pain in love," IBlack Lion said.
The song is the lead single from the artiste's seven-track EP called Story of a Dream, which will be released in the fall of 2016.
"I have already linked VP Records to deal with the release of the EP, and they love the progress that No Pain is making so far. Good Good Productions will be dropping a riddim with him in September, so there are a lot of projects in the pipeline," his manager, Omar Dove, said.
IBlack Lion recently performed at the Jack Ruby memorial concert, organised by Irie FM.
"IBlack Lion will be doing a major publicity blitz to promote the video, which will be released in Jamaica next week," Dove said.
IBlack Lion has performed a stunning eight times on Reggae Sumfest, the first two times when he was still known as Black Mice. He changed his name to Black Lion in 1995 when he began to grow his locks and as he explored his spirituality as a Rastafarian.
A very skilled kette drummer, he grew up in the tough inner-city community of Granville, St James. He first tasted international success with the popular single Push Lady Push in 2005, which hit several reggae charts all over the world.
