Collie Buddz follows a string of successful one-off singles and collaborations with a new reggae soul classic “BLUE DREAMZ” and “Like Yuh Miss Me,” a sexed-up banger that’ll make you wish summer was sticking around for another few months.
His first project since 2012’s Playback, Blue Dreamz once again proves his incomparable talent for blending ol’-school riddims with modern sounds.
Buddz delivers his timeless approach to reggae and dancehall as he celebrates the finer things in life throughout the seven tracks. Women, weed, and friends, they’re all essential to the Bermuda native’s party. He drives that home on the appropriately titled “Go Hard,” no doubt a crowd pleaser during his seemingly endless tour schedule. A true road warrior, Buddz has spent the past few years supporting the likes of Cypress Hill, Rebelution, and Matisyahu.
Even when tackling more serious themes, Buddz finds a way to keep it chill. That’s apparent on “Pressure,” a vibes-filled tune highlighting the world’s addiction to texting and social media. And it sits comfortably next to a mid-afternoon joint like, “Sweet Wine” and the legalize-it anthem, “Prescription.” This is all a testament to Buddz’ artistry, something we’ve all known since the release of his acclaimed 2007 debut, Come Around, and its luminous title track.
Blue Dreamz is out now on Louder Than Life/Sony Music. And if you’re in NYC tonight, you can catch Buddz at Hot 97’s On Da Reggae & Soca Tip tonight in NYC. Also, be sure to keep an eye out for soon-coming videos for “Like Yuh Miss Me” and “Blue Dreamz.”
