I-Octane teams up with J Boog
International reggae star I-Octane has premiered his new single 'Pretty Loud' featuring J Boog, and announced that he (I-Octane) will join him for selected California tour dates.
The tour performances will be in support of I-Octane's anticipated third full-length album titled Love and Life, which is set to to be released on March 30.
Although much earlier performances will be announced, the California leg of J Boog's L.O.E tour will introduce reggae star I-Octane to new fans and deliver a dose of Jamaica's vibes to San Luis Obispo, Bakersfield, Fresno, Redway, and Monterey.
Speaking on the song's inspiration, I-Octane explained: "I was in the studio talking with my brethren about how we see some beautiful women that never can keep a man, or who always change men. We all know some of them that think that because they are beautiful, they should be treated a certain way."
He said that the idea to work with J Boog came from his manager.
"We were talking about him and his accomplishments in reggae on the international front, and she suggested him for the record. He delivered as expected; his voice just fits in perfectly. It's one of my favourite collaborations. I get to introduce him to my audience, and I get to know his audience. We give thanks," he said.
Distributed by IDC, Pretty Loud will be available today.
J Boog said that as a fan of reggae music, he has long admired and been a fan of I-Octane.
"I've had the pleasure of working with some great artistes, and now I can count him among those names. What makes it sweeter is not only our collaboration, but the fact that we will perform it together when he joins my L.O.E tour in Cali," he said.
