JUNO award winners Kirk Diamond and Kairo Mclean join Finn on their hot new single ‘Reggae Party’. Released on September 15th, 2022, the song is already creating a buzz in music circles.
According to Kirk Diamond, the lyrics in the song were inspired by today’s social climate as told by mainstream media. “Every time you turn on the news or just browse through social media it’s negative”, he said. “Some nation going to fight another, another disease, etc, but the only place that I’m not even thinking about these things are in the Dancehall or in this case a reggae party”.
Kirk is excited and honored to have finally gotten an opportunity to collaborate on a project with fellow JUNO award recipient Kairo Mclean. “For me, there isn’t anyone else I’d rather collaborate with on this song”, Diamond said. “Kairo and His family have become my family, I’m truly a fan of his”, he continued. “Working with Kairo is a blessing to witness. He’s a professional reggae artist and I think the future of reggae in Canada is in good hands, as long as he continues doing what he loves”.
Fourteen years old Kairo Mclean is excited to have worked on ‘Reggae Party’ with Kirk Diamond and Finn. “It was an honor to work with such an accomplished artist”, Mclean said. “Uncle Kirk is fun to work with, he is extremely creative and gives me creative freedom, and Finn is excellent at his craft it was a pleasure working with both of them”.
